Fox News Anchor Publishes Trump Accuser’s Address and Phone
Fox Business Network anchor Lou Dobbs is under fire after publishing the address and phone number of one of the women who accused Donald Trump of groping her, several news outlets reported.
On Thursday morning, Dobbs posted Jessica Leeds contact information on Twitter for his 792,000 followers to see, putting her at risk of retaliation by Trump supporters who have been known to become violent against those who are critical of their candidate. In one case, an artist who went viral after drawing a picture of Trump with small genitals was tracked down and punched in the face by a supporter right outside her house.
Dobbs’ Tweet linked to a post from a conservative news site which published Leeds’ address and phone number and then claimed, falsely, that her phone number is the same as a phone number for the Clinton Foundation.
Ms. Leeds told the New York Times that she was groped by Trump when she sat next to him on a first class flight thirty years ago until she had to flee to the back of the plane.
Dobbs also quoted a Trump supporter’s tweet which shared Leeds’ phone number and address, according to the report.
