“I wake up, and Shepard is on top of me, like, in a towel or a bathrobe. And he’s got his tongue down my throat and his hands all over me. Completely uninvited. I mean, I gave him no signal. There was nothing,” John Doe #1 says in the interview — excerpts of which are presented in audio form above.

  1. Shep seems to have lucked out with another staffer……….Gianno Graziano, whom he promoted.

  2. Yep, that’s sexual assault. Now let’s see if Fox is “fair and balanced” and investigates before letting Shep go. On another note, this article is poorly written. Start at the beginning…how did they get from the bar to Shep’s place and then on to each next step. Remember, your reader doesn’t know anything but what you tell them.

  3. Why did you go to his house and stay the night? Surely you must have had an idea??? I dislike Shep immensely but this doesn’t seem legit.

  4. Something was omitted ….first you meet up with him at the bar….the next line is, …you wake up w him on top of you….
    Thanks for the story though ….funny as hell…about the Fox man I mean…the righteous Mr. Never done nothing wrong man….
