MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Public Radio has released additional details of the sexual harassment allegations against humorist Garrison Keillor.
The station said Tuesday the former radio host was accused by one woman of dozens of sexually inappropriate incidents over several years, including requests for sexual contact and explicit sexual communications and touching. MPR says the woman detailed the allegations in a 12-page letter that included excerpts of emails and written messages.
MPR says the letter shows Keillor’s alleged conduct went beyond his account in November of accidently touching a woman’s bare back while consoling her.
Keillor told the Star Tribune the woman’s account is “a highly selective and imaginative piece of work.”
Some fans were outraged that Keillor was fired and Keillor accused the station of letting him go without a full investigation.
