Christine O’Donnell says believes Piers Morgan was asking sexually harassing questions.

The former U.S. Senate candidate from Delaware has said that women in politics — particularly Republican women — are held to a double standard and suggested that that’s precisely what happened Wednesday night when she and her staff put a halt to the interview…

“It was not about the questions of gay marriages, as the producer very dishonestly tried to portray it. It was … the very inappropriate, creepy line of questioning leading up to that. And I think that I was a very good sport for the first 20 minutes,” she said. But it was questions that he’d asked just moments before the gay rights issues — including one about masturbation — that unnerved her. “Do you still think masturbation is wrong?” he asked, followed by “Have you committed lust in your heart?”

She was so upset from those questions that she realized the interview had little chance of getting back on track.

“When they’re sitting there pressing you on personal intimate questions and you’re saying, ‘I don’t want to go there,’ he could have said, ‘What’s your mother’s name?’ and I would have been like, ‘Come on, let’s stop!’ I wanted to stop that borderline sexual harassment that was going on. It was inappropriate and he wasn’t stopping.”
