Waaaah!!!! Sean Hannity Wants Him An Obama White House Scalp Too! Too Bad His Attack On Jennings Is BS.

[media id=10138] Sean Hannity just came out and said it last night before his "All-American Panel": He's attacking Kevin Jennings, the Obama White Ho


Sean Hannity just came out and said it last night before his "All-American Panel": He's attacking Kevin Jennings, the Obama White House's "School Safety Czar," for ostensibly looking the other way when informed of a teenage boy's affair with an older man.

Hannity, you see, thinks he abetted "statutory rape" and displayed "bad judgment." Therefore:

Hannity: I want him fired!

As usual, Media Matters has the whole story:

Despite evidence to the contrary, Fox News -- led by Sean Hannity -- and other right-wing media have claimed that Department of Education official Kevin Jennings "cover[ed] up statutory rape" and violated Massachusetts law by not reporting to authorities a 1988 conversation in which a high school student told Jennings about his relationship with an older man. In fact, Jennings' attorney wrote in a 2004 letter that the student was 16 years old, which is -- and was at the time -- the legal age of consent in Massachusetts.

What exactly should Jennings have reported to authorities, Sean?

Hannity is just seething with jealousy, and you can tell it. Glenn Beck has two scalps already, and he wants one too, just to keep up. The behind-the-scenes rumors are that Hannity despises Beck and the feeling is mutual -- and that, moreover, Beck is gunning for Hannity's prime evening slot.

Too bad for Hannity he's shooting blanks again with this takedown try. Here's wishing you even worse luck next time, Sean.
