The St. Petersburg Times lashes out at O'Reilly

The gloves are off!

Brown-Waite, O'Reilly interference not helpful

In one corner, we have a tag-team that could work the Catskills circuit as a vaudeville act: Television's reigning merchant of outrage, Bill O'Reilly, and our own hyphenated congresswoman, Ginny Brown-Waite.

O'Reilly is fresh off the quiet settlement of an embarrassing sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a female Fox News producer involving unwanted phone call advances from the popular pundit. Her suit gave graphic accounts of O'Reilly breathlessly regaling her with tales of Caribbean shower fantasies, Thailand sex shows and creative ways he can use a vibrator and a loofah sponge.

Brown-Waite has crossed paths with King once before in another case involving the question of whether to press charges. Back in 2002, her husband, Harvey Waite, was caught by Hernando County deputies vandalizing campaign signs of her opponent, Karen Thurman. Funny, Ginny didn't seem too upset then when King decided not to bring charges.

This high-profile wrestling match went into another round Friday when King fired off a letter to O'Reilly telling him to call off his dogs, his staffers who King said have been harassing the State Attorney's wife and children, neighbors and co-workers.
