Bill O'Reilly was the first to get the ax at Fox News. Now, conservative news commentator Sean Hannity has been accused of misbehavin'.

Are you starting to see a pattern here?

O'Reilly's denials to the contrary, Fox News ditched the popular host of "The O'Reilly Factor" last week following new claims of inappropriate behavior by Fox News employees.

Fox News and O'Reilly reportedly paid $13 million to settle five sexual harassment claims since 2002 before the company decided to cut O'Reilly loose.

According to The Daily Beast, during a interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, Debbie Schlussel "accused Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room before and after a debate with a pro-Palestinian guest in Detroit. Schlussel said she rejected Hannity’s alleged advances and that she was never invited on his show again."

Turns out Schlussel, an attorney, can't get her story straight now. She's denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Hannity. reported in a radio program that while Schlussel, an attorney, sticks by her "description" of the incident, "Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition."

“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel said.

Schlussel said the incident took place in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.

Nearly two decades after the alleged incident Schlussel decided to come forward. How convenient. Kind of like candidate Donald Trump, who faced multiple allegations of sexual harassment during the final days of his presidential campaign.

Schlussel told LawNewz that Sean Hannity “tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly. I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked."

We're confident weird and creepy do not meet the legal standard of sexual harassment. They're more on a par with cooties and icky, both of which are not actionable offenses either.

It's beginning to look more like a case of blood in the water and the female sharks are on the prowl, searching for easy meat at Fox News.

To his credit, Hannity hit back against the "serial harasser" Schlussel and vowed to fight if Schlussel filed a lawsuit.

We don't think she will, because Schlussel's story doesn't have any teeth.

Please share this on Facebook if it appears there is a concerted effort to target conservative pundits at Fox News with allegations of sexual harassment.
