O'Donnell's Take on Morgan: 'Borderline Sexual Harassment'
A collection of recent political quotes and observations from the campaign trail and beyond. O'Donnell: "If you were sitting in an interview and they were berating you with questions about your personal sex life ... I wanted to stop that borderline sexual harassment that was going on."

1. O'Donnell's the borderline case here.
Obviously she hasn't been in a genuine setting of sexual harassment. Having to forego the professional for the sexual is just one element. What makes it sexual harassment is the threat of losing your employment if you don't cooperate. And no hope of references for your next job, if you can find one.

O'Donnell never had to worry about an employment situation with Piers Morgan and/or CNN. It was a contract to do an interview. Worst case criticism would be a breach of contract if CNN and/or Morgan promised in the agreement not to broach certain subjects and they did anyway.

Not to mention, Piers Morgan only made conversation. He didn't get up, stand over O'Donnell, move licensciously, melt her with his eyes, etc. He remained seated and rather frigid IMO.
