WASHINGTON (AP) — Former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell says she walked off Piers Morgan's CNN show because of what she described as his "very inappropriate, creepy line of questioning."

The Delaware Republican said Friday on NBC's "Today" show that she wanted to stop the "borderline sexual harassment that was going on."

O'Donnell had been invited to appear on Morgan's show Wednesday to promote her new book. Morgan asked her during the interview whether she still believes masturbation is wrong and supports total abstinence. O'Donnell has made comments in the past about opposing masturbation.

Afterward, O'Donnell became angry when Morgan asked her if she supported gay marriage. She said Morgan was "borderline being a little bit rude."

Someone later said off-camera to O'Donnell that it was "time to go," and she left.
