Melanie Morgan, Media Equalizer co-founder, joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday to discuss her allegations that current Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) harassed her after a taping of Politically Incorrect in August 2000.
Morgan’s account of events was first reported at Media Equalizer:
He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimindating [sic].
I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.
He approached Carol, the show’s producer and demanded my home phone number, which was a clear violation of network protocol. I had thought that was the end of the story and was shocked when he started calling my home, badgering me repeatedly.
I became fearful and called Carol to complain and asked her to tell him to back off. But he made another call after that. I thought that he might end up stalking me at my home in Northern California, it was that bad.
By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed.
Morgan told Marlow that Franken somehow got her phone number after the show, saying, “He started calling me day after day after day,” arguing “incoherently.”
“I had no freaking clue what he was talking about,” Morgan added, saying, “The conversations wandered off into these bizarre places that were incoherent.” She said it was “too much” and “too scary” for her, describing how she felt harassed as it went on despite her telling Franken not to call her again.
Including herself in the list of at least three known accusers claiming Franken engaged in “wildly inappropriate behavior,” Morgan said, “It’s time for him to resign.”
