Allison Donahue at Michigan Advance: I tried to interview Sen. Peter Lucido. He told me a group of schoolboys ‘could have a lot of fun’ with me.
Allison Donahue’s important thread on Twitter:
Thank you all for the support. I promise I will collect my thoughts soon, but I will say this:
I didn’t want to stand up for myself after that. It’s awkward and in rare cases is it ever taken well and the comments apologized for.
But I’ve stayed silent before.

Also Allison Donahue on Twitter:
If it is unlikely that I have your cell phone number saved and you need to reach me, please try text or email first.
The prank calls have started and I don’t feel incredibly safe answering random calls.
