Garrison Keillor dropped for sexual harassment


Oh, good God!

Garrison Keillor, ex-host of ‘A Prairie Home Companion,’ dropped by Minnesota Public Radio after allegations of improper behavior

By Abby Ohlheiser November 29 at 1:02 PM

Garrison Keillor, who hosted the popular radio show “A Prairie Home Companion” for decades until his retirement last year, has been fired from Minnesota Public Radio after allegations of “inappropriate behavior,” MPR confirmed in a statement Wednesday.

“Minnesota Public Radio is terminating its contracts with Garrison Keillor and his private media companies after recently learning of allegations of his inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him,” the statement read.
Keillor had told the Associated Press earlier on Wednesday that he’d been fired over “a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard.”

MPR said it learned of the allegations last month, and that they “relate to Mr. Keillor’s conduct while he was responsible for the production of A Prairie Home Companion.”

The organization said it has retained an outside law firm to conduct an “independent investigation” into the allegations, which is ongoing.

MPR will stop distributing and broadcasting “The Writer’s Almanac,” a show Keillor still produces after retiring from “A Prairie Home Companion.”
“A Prairie Home Companion,” now hosted by Chris Thile, will be renamed, MPR added.
Keillor, an avowed Democrat and occasional columnist for The Washington Post News Service and Syndicate, wrote an op-ed Tuesday ridiculing the idea that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) should resign over allegations of sexual harassment.

I read Keillor's op-ed defending Al Franken this morning.

Maybe there are two sides to this story ... I'm not accepting this yet, just can't do it.

Maybe these problems gropers are having will make others think before they misbehave.

And I hope it starts a conversation with parents to their sons. Groping starts early.
