But consideration of her prejudice should be taken into account when the promised detail arrives... if it does.
"Melanie Morgan, who was a ABC Radio talk show host for KSFO in San Francisco at the time, appeared August 19, 2000 on ABC's late night show Politically Incorrect.Still gonna coddle Al, or do you need to wait until Ms. Morgan testifies under oath?
She was joined by Franken, William Baldwin, and then-Colorado Lt. Governor Joe Rogers on the panel.
Morgan and Franken had a dispute over the OMB's budget numbers.
"I was invited and unaware of who his guests were going to be that night. I've since learned that though few know this, Al Franken was actually a writer for the show," Morgan said.
"I made a statement about the budget numbers, Franken challenged me, I challenged him back. It was about spending priorities, actually just a mundane discussion. But he obsessed over it."
After the show, Morgan said Franken wouldn't leave her alone, insisting on continuing the argument.
"He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn't leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimindating.
"I didn't realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.
"He approached Carol, the show's producer and demanded my home phone number, which was a clear violation of network protocol. I had thought that was the end of the story and was shocked when he started calling my home, badgering me repeatedly.
"I became fearful and called Carol to complain and asked her to tell him to back off. But he made another call after that. I thought that he might end up stalking me at my home in Northern California, it was that bad.
"By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed," Morgan recounted.
Morgan said Franken finally left her alone, but only after she pushed back and threatened to call the police.
To this day, she says she is haunted by it: "I never forgot that experience and it informed me of his lack of character and obsessive personality. I believe every word Leann wrote."
"I will happily testify before the Senate Ethics Committee, should a hearing be held regarding Franken's behavior," Morgan added.
