Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Thursday posted a phone number and an address purportedly belonging to one of the women who has accused Donald Trump of unwanted sexual contact.
Dobbs, a fierce Trump supporter, retweeted an individual who had posted the purported information of Jessica Leeds. The 74-year-old woman told The New York Times in an article published Wednesday that decades ago Trump groped her on a first-class flight.
“This is the Dirtiest Campaign in our History,” Dobbs wrote, using the hashtags “MAGA,” “TrumpPence16,” and “AmericaFirst.”
Twitter’s terms of service prohibit individuals from posting “other people’s private and confidential information” such as home addresses.
Dobbs later appeared to apologize in a tweet:
A representative for Fox Business did not immediately respond to a request for comment. There were growing calls for the network to take disciplinary action on Thursday afternoon.
A representative for Twitter said the company does not comment on specific cases.
The purported personal information was posted to claim that Leeds had the same phone number as one listed for the Clinton Foundation in WikiLeaks releases (even though the phone numbers themselves did not match).
Dobbs is one of Fox Business’ most prominent hosts and earns some of the highest ratings on the network.
