Earlier today TheBlaze reported that Fox Business personality Lou Dobbs had on two separate occasions tweeted out the phone number and home address of Jessica Leeds, one of the women who has accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of inappropriate behavior over the last 48 hours. Dobbs has over 700,000 followers on Twitter.
At some point today, the original tweet that contained the telephone number and address was taken down by the original user who tweeted it, although it is unclear if it was removed by the user or by Twitter staff. Throughout the afternoon, Dobbs’ tweet remained visible.
Dobbs has since issued an apology on his twitter account, calling his tweet a “mistake.”
