The Record reporter Chris Harris appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Thursday night to discuss the possible civil sexual harassment lawsuit against conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe.

Conservative blogger Nadia Naffe accused O’Keefe of sending her harassing messages after she backed out of an upcoming hidden camera sting on the “Occupy Wall Street” protest in New York City. Judge Alan Karch dismissed the criminal complaint against O’Keefe because there was insufficient evidence showing the harassment originated in Westwood, where O’Keefe lives with his parents.

“Ultimately, he couldn’t prove that all of it stemmed or originated from his jurisdiction,” Harris explained. “So therefore the charges wouldn’t stick in his court.”

But the judge informed her that she could pursue a civil complaint.

Naffe also vaguely suggested that O’Keefe drugged her, and that she passed out while O’Keefe and a friend were taking her to the train station. When she awoke, she allegedly found underwear and a wireless mouse had been stolen from her luggage, according to Harris’ report about the hearing.
