Fox’s Lou Dobbs Apologizes For Doxxing Trump Accuser

Too little, too late Lou.
Fox’s Lou Dobbs Apologizes For Doxxing Trump Accuser

In a desperate effort to help Donald Trump in the wake of the latest devastating sexual abuse allegations, Lou Dobbs tweeted a Trump accuser’s home address and phone number as part of an effort to smear her. He has since apologized and deleted the tweet.

The effort from this ardent Trump supporter to smear Trump accuser Jessica Leeds was caught by Politico:

Dobbs linked to a post from a conservative news site that purported to link Leeds to the Clinton Foundation. The site published Leeds’ address and phone number — taken from public records — and then claimed, falsely, that her phone number is the same as a phone number for the Clinton Foundation.

He also quoted a tweet from a Trump supporter, which has since been deleted, that included Leeds’ phone number and address.

As Mediaite reported, the tweet remained on Dobbs’ timeline for two hours and was retweeted hundreds of times. It also engendered quite a backlash.

Now Dobbs has apologized. But who knows what damage has been done?
