Cosby Accused of Molesting a Minor

There just doesn’t seem to be any bottom to the well of women Cosby raped…

For the first time, he is being accused of raping a minor.

Bill Cosby Not Indicted on Charges of Sexually Assaulting a Minor Due to Statute of Limitations

Bill Cosby will not be indicted on charges of sexually assaulting a minor 40 years ago.

Los Angeles prosecutors made the announcement Tuesday, over one week after Judy Huth came forward to allege that Cosby sexually assaulted her when she was only 16 years old in 1974. Initially, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said his detectives would investigate no matter the timeframe that had passed.

“We don’t turn people away because things are out of statute. You come to us, especially with a sexual allegation, we will work with you,” Beck said in a Los Angeles Times report last week. “We address these things seriously, and it’s not just because it’s Mr. Cosby.”

However, the district attorney insisted that far too much time had passed since the statute of limitations of the alleged incident was three years.

“Therefore, prosecution today for any potential felony sex crime from 1974 would also be barred,” the D.A. said in a court document.

Still, Cosby is facing other lawsuits. The 77-year-old comedian who became popular in the 1980s and 1990s family sitcom “The Cosby Show,” has recently been the subject of media scrutiny due to the rising number of allegations brought against him. Lately, a number of women have come forth alleging that Cosby sexually assaulted them years ago.

Is Herman Cain Another Clarence Thomas?

Who...Me?

Those who remember the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, recall the Anita Hill affair…

Seems Clarence had a problem with the ladies.

Reports are coming out now that Herman Cain may indeed have the same problem. To be fair, this is still in the category where it could be a smear…

But Cain’s response below does leave a few questions.

Herman Cain denies report of sexual harassment

Herman Cain, a businessman whose rise to the top of the Republican presidential polls has stunned the U.S. political establishment, was on the defensive Monday after a report he had faced sexual harassment accusations in the 1990s.

Cain planned to make several scheduled appearances in Washington on Monday following the report that alleges he was twice accused of sexual harassment while he was the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.

In a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday, his campaign disputed a report on the website Politico that said Cain had been accused of sexually suggestive behavior toward at least two female employees.

Cain — a self-styled outsider relatively new to the national stage — is facing a new level of scrutiny after a burst of momentum in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. He’s been steadily at or near the top of national surveys and polls in early presidential nominating states, competitive with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

The report said the women signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them five-figure financial payouts to leave the association and barred them from discussing their departures. Neither woman was identified.

The report was based on anonymous sources and, in one case, what the publication said was a review of documentation that described the allegations and the resolution.

Cain’s campaign told the AP that the allegations were not true, and amounted to unfair attacks.

“Inside-the-Beltway media have begun to launch unsubstantiated personal attacks on Cain,” spokesman J.D. Gordon said in a written statement. “Dredging up thinly sourced allegations stemming from Mr. Cain’s tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s, political trade press are now casting aspersions on his character and spreading rumors that never stood up to the facts.”

Asked if Cain’s campaign was denying the report, Gordon said, “Yes.”

“These are baseless allegations,” Gordon said in a second interview later Sunday evening. “To my knowledge, this is not an accurate story.”

Cain plans to continue with several planned appearances in Washington on Monday. He is slated to discuss his tax plan at the American Enterprise Institute, appear at the National Press Club and hold a healthcare briefing on Capitol Hill.

The former pizza company executive has been pointing to his long record in business to argue that he has the credentials needed to be president during a time of economic strife.

In its report, Politico said it confronted Cain early Sunday outside of the CBS News Washington bureau, where he had just been interviewed on “Face the Nation.”

“I am not going to comment on that,” he told Politico when asked specifically about one of the woman’s claims.

When asked if he had ever been accused of harassment by a woman, he responded, Politico said, by asking the reporter, “Have you ever been accused of sexual harassment?”
