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

Welcome back. Good to see you again!
That makes sense. I’m not sure it makes a difference to Ms. Leeds but I’ll give Dobbs some points for inadvertence.
That journalist would be FIRED on the spot, even after publicly apologizing.
Dobbs, on the other hand, probably just ensured his next contract renewal.
Be fair Lou. Put your phone number and address for all to see.
