Republican Child Molester’s Accuser’s House Torched

Roy Moore, most recently seen badly loosing a Senate race in a red-red state and refusing to concede, had been accused of multiple women of child molesting. Apparently some of the Republicans who wanted the child molester in office got revenge…

Yet another white-wing terrorsit attack.

Arson investigation underway after Roy Moore accuser’s home burns down

An arson investigation is underway after the Alabama home of one of the women who accused former GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriate behavior burned down. The Etowah County Arson Task Force confirmed it is investigating the blaze in Gadsen and speaking to a person of interest. Authorities say there is no indication that the fire was related to Moore or the woman’s allegations.

According to the local news outlet AL.com, Tina Johnson’s home burned down Wednesday while she and her husband were at work and her grandson was at school. Johnson and her family said they lost everything they owned.

“I am devastated, just devastated,” Johnson told the news outlet. “We have just the clothes on our backs.”

Johnson and her neighbor Kevin Tallant told AL.com that other neighbors saw a young man who has a history of intoxication walking around the house at the time of the fire, and local authorities said they are speaking with a suspect.

“The ongoing investigation does not lead us to believe that the fire is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him,” the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

Johnson accused Moore of groping her butt in 1991, when she was 28 and visiting his law office. Moore was already married at the time.

“He didn’t pinch it; he grabbed it,” Johnson told AL.com in November.

Moore was also accused of inappropriately touching underage women, including a 14-year-old and a 16-year-old when he was in his 30s.

Moore lost the election in the heavily red state to Democrat Doug Jones in December, but refused to concede.

White Woman at the Center of Emmit Till Murder…Admits to Lying

60 years later, the white woman who accused Emmit Till of fondling her has confessed that it didn’t happen.

‘Not true’: Woman admits she made up claims that led to Emmett Till’s brutal lynching

The woman at the center of the brutal murder of Emmett Till — which helped launch the civil rights movement — has revealed for the first time that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony, reported Vanity Fair.

Carolyn Bryant Donham has never spoken publicly since she testified in the murder trial of her then-husband, Roy Bryant, and his half-brother, J.W. Milam, who were each acquitted less than a month after they kidnapped, tortured and executed the black boy.

After their acquittal, the pair proudly admitted what they’d done to Look magazine, saying they basically had no choice but to kill the teenager for behaving lasciviously toward Bryant’s wife.

But Donham, who later divorced Bryant and married twice more in the following years, admitted to author Timothy Tyson that she’d made up some of the claims that led to Till’s death.

Donham was 21 years old in 1955, when she spent about one minute alone with the 14-year-old Till, who was visiting family in Mississippi from Chicago, while working in the store she owned with her husband.

The teen, whose mother called him “Bo,” bragged to his cousin and some other boys that he had a white girlfriend back home — and the boys dared him to speak to the woman working behind the counter.

A 12-year-old cousin briefly went inside but left Emmett alone with Donham for about a minute, and she later claimed Till had grabbed her and made lewd comments.

His cousin, Simeon Wright, recalled decades later that couldn’t have been possible — and, it turns out, he was right.

“That part’s not true,” Donham told Tyson, who conducted the first-ever interview with the elderly mother of two for a new book, The Blood of Emmett Till.

She also claimed Till had wolf-whistled at her, but Tyson notes that might not have been intentional because the boy had a lisp.

Donham claims she couldn’t remember anymore the rest of their brief encounter.

The interview was actually conducted in 2007, after Donham approached the Duke University scholar about helping to write her memoirs.

“That case went a long way toward ruining her life,” said Tyson, who said the Donham family reminded him of his own.

He said Donham’s views on race had changed over the years, along with much of the country’s.

“She was glad things had changed [and she] thought the old system of white supremacy was wrong, though she had more or less taken it as normal at the time,” Tyson said.

Donham told the author she “felt tender sorrow” toward Mamie Till-Mobley, who insisted on an open casket to show the world her son’s mutilated body, and she expressed something like regret about her role in his slaying.

“Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him,” Donham said.

Donham, who retreated back into seclusion, has also written a memoir, “More Than a Wolf Whistle: The Story of Carolyn Bryant Donham,” but it will not be available to scholars until 2038, at her request.

Don Lemon Gets Crude With Cosby Accuser

Wow! I can’t believe he asked her that!

Methinks Lemon needs some time-off to come to grips with the real world where folks under the stress of the moment don’t always make perfect decisions…

And perhaps in her case – wound up beaten and abused, as well as raped.

Don Lemon Asks Bill Cosby Accuser Why She Didn’t Bite His Penis To Stop Her Rape

CNN’s Don Lemon is no stranger to tense and uncomfortable interviews, but a conversation with Bill Cosby’s latest rape accuser Tuesday night took a particularly shocking turn for the worse.

Speaking with Joan Tarshis, a woman who recently accused Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting her 45 years ago, the CNN host asked his guest why she didn’t use her teeth as “a weapon” while being forced to perform oral sex on the comedian.

Lemon at first apologized for sounding “crude,” and then pressed further: “You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it,” he said.

“Biting,” he later said more directly.

“I didn’t even think of it,” Tarshis replied.

Read the full exchange:

Lemon: Can I ask you this, because — and please, I don’t mean to be crude, ok?

Tarshis: Yeah.

Lemon: Because I know some of you — and you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said “I have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife.”

Tarshis: Right.

Lemon: And you said he made you perform oral sex.

Tarshis: Right.

Lemon: You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn’t want to do it.

Tarshis: Oh. Um, I was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn’t even enter my mind. Now I wish it would have.

Lemon: Right. Meaning the using of the teeth, right?

Tarshis: Yes, that’s what I’m thinking you’re —

Lemon: As a weapon.

Tarshis: Yeah, I didn’t even think of it.

Lemon: Biting.

Tarshis: Ouch.

Lemon: Yes. I had to ask. I mean, it is, yeah.

Tarshis: Yes. No, it didn’t cross my mind.

Take a Hint Herman!

Time to do something smart for a change, Herman – and fall on your political sword…Everyone has had enough of the Minstrel Show.

“Dead Man Walking”… Indeed.

"It's Time to Go Now", Herman...

Cain Speaks Out to Deny Charges; 2nd Voice Heard

Days after declaring he was moving on from the rapidly developing controversy, Mr. Cain waded back in with an emphatic plea for decency from his high-profile lawyer followed by a defense of his personal integrity and a condemnation of the news media. He was emphatic in saying that men were victims of sexual harassment, too.

His comments came as the latest woman to go public with the accusations — Karen Kraushaar, one of two who settled sexual harassment claims while they worked at the National Restaurant Association while it was led by Mr. Cain — set in motion plans to appear with other women who have accused Mr. Cain of inappropriate behavior.

Ms. Kraushaar, 55, who now works as a spokeswoman for one of the three inspectors general at the Treasury Department, told The New York Times: “When you are being sexually harassed in the workplace, you are extremely vulnerable. You do whatever you can to quickly get yourself into a job someplace safe, and that is what I thought I had achieved when I left.”

Herman Cain – Would Accuser #5 Please Step Forward…

One of the reasons Herman Cain isn’t presidential material has been shown graphically in his mishandling of the entire secual harassment scandal. Somehow, Cornbread thinks he’s going to prove all these women liars – despite their having legal papers in hand.

Herman – Your dumb, ignorant, corporate-rapist ass is toast! Thank your fellow Republican candidates for sticking the knife in your back – but it is all your fault for being too arrogant, and stupid to pull the knife out.

Fifth woman raises questions about Cain’s behavior

A former employee of the United States Agency for International Development says Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain asked her to help arrange a dinner date for him with a female audience member following a speech he delivered nine years ago.

Donna Donella, 40, of Arlington, said the USAID paid Cain to deliver a speech to businessmen and women in Egypt in 2002, during which an Egyptian businesswoman in her 30s asked Cain a question.

“And after the seminar was over,” Donella told The Washington Examiner, “Cain came over to me and a colleague and said, ‘Could you put me in touch with that lovely young lady who asked the question, so I can give her a more thorough answer over dinner?'”

Donella, who no longer works for USAID, said they were suspicious of Cain’s motives and declined to set up the date. Cain responded, “Then you and I can have dinner.” That’s when two female colleagues intervened and suggested they all go to dinner together, Donella said.

Cain exhibited no inappropriate sexual behavior during the dinner, though he did order two $400 bottles of wine and stuck the women with the bill, she said.

The next time the women heard from Cain was Christmas, when he sent them his gospel CD.

Donella said she felt it was important to describe her encounter with Cain after hearing more serious allegations of sexual harassment brought by other women.

“I couldn’t swear that he had some untoward intentions, but we all thought his tone was suspect and we didn’t feel comfortable putting him in touch with that woman,” Donella recalled.

Cain Accusers Want to Talk!

Apparently, Cain’s characterization of the women who filed claims against him as President of the National Restaurant Association for sexual harassment…

Has pissed off one of them.

Now the REAL problem with this type of thing, is where there is one – there are very likely a whole bunch more…

 

Lawyer: Cain accuser wants to tell her side of story

One of the women who accused GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain of sexual harassment wants to tell her side of the story but is barred by a confidentiality agreement, her attorney in Washington said Tuesday.

Lawyer Joel P. Bennett called on the National Restaurant Association, where the woman and Cain worked in the late 1990s, to release the woman from her written promise not to talk about the allegations or disparage the trade group.

“It is just frustrating that Herman Cain is going around bad-mouthing the two complainants, and my client is blocked by a confidentiality agreement,” Bennett said. “The National Restaurant Association ought to release them and allow them to respond. ”

The association, which Cain headed from 1996 to 1999, has remained mum since the story broke in Politico on Sunday evening, citing a long-standing policy not to comment on personnel issues. Cain denied the sexual harassment allegations, saying they were “totally baseless and totally false.”

Bennett represents one of the two women, who attended an Ivy League school and now works for the federal government. She has avoided the limelight since the allegations were aired, and she is staying with relatives while the media stakes out her home in suburban Maryland, Bennett said.

If she is released from the confidentiality ban, “then it is whole new ballgame,” Bennett said.

“If we didn’t have a written settlement agreement that says confidential and no disparagement, I think she’d be very comfortable coming forward,” the attorney told The Post on Tuesday. “Not because she would be so hellbent on doing something to Herman Cain — I don’t know that.

“For all practical purposes, Herman Cain has already done that” — waived confidentiality, Bennett said. “But legally that might not constitute a waiver.”

Because the case is more than a dozen years old, Bennett said he no longer has the file nor the confidentiality agreement. He said his client is sending it to him for review to determine how she might speak publicly.

Bennett, who has practiced employment law for four decades since graduating from Georgetown University, said that he disagrees with Cain’s statements that the settlement agreement with his client was only for severance.

“If there hadn’t been [sexual harassment] claims, there wouldn’t have been a settlement,” Bennett said…
