Fox’s Lou Dobbs Apologizes After Posting Jessica Leeds’s Personal Information

HeadlineOct 14, 2016

Meanwhile, Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs has apologized after he tweeted the personal phone number and address of Jessica Leeds, who has accused Trump of sexually assaulting her on an airplane in the 1980s. This is Leeds.

Jessica Leeds: “It was a real shock when all of a sudden his hands were all over me. He started encroaching on my space. And I hesitate to use this expression, but I’m going to. And that is, he was like an octopus. It was like he had six arms. He was all over the place. But it’s when he started putting his hand up my skirt, and that was it. That was it. I was out of there.”

Dobbs tweeted her address and phone number on Thursday, then deleted the tweet and apologized, saying, “My Retweet, My Mistake, My Apology to Jessica Leeds.”
