    King5 ^ | 7/7/2020
    Mary Kay Letourneau, who received national infamy after being convicted of raping her student and then later marrying him, has died at age 58, her attorney confirmed to KING 5 news. Letourneau died of stage 4 cancer, said her attorney David Gerke, who represented her on the case. In 1996, Letourneau, a sixth-grade teacher at Shorewood Elementary in Burien, was caught having sexual relations with Vili Fualaau, who was her student. Fualaau was 12-years-old at the time. The two got married in 2005 just after Letourneau was released from a seven-year prison sentence for having sex with a minor. Fualaau...

    Leading voice in the #MeToo movement, Rose McGowan, best known for taking down sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, is now hoping that the likes of Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew are the next two prominent figures to face justice, having called for their arrest. A photo of Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and Ghislaine Maxwell was tweeted by McGowan on Friday, with the three each having a red 'X' over their faces, this being reference to Weinstein being sentenced to 23 years in prison for his sexual abuse, Epstein having allegedly killed himself after being imprisoned on federal charges of sex trafficking of...

    American Thinker ^ | 7-2-2020 | Peter Barry Chowka
    Prominent Fox News channel daily anchor Ed Henry was summarily fired yesterday as the #MeToo movement has apparently claimed its latest mark. The announcement came in an internal email to Fox News staff early Wednesday morning, followed by an email to journalists including this author that featured a screen shot of the internal email announcing Henry's "termination." The cause for Henry's dismissal was alleged confirmation after a brief "independent investigation" of "a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee's attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago." No further details of Henry's alleged "sexual misconduct" have been...

    The judge concludes that Stephen Elliott, an author who was accused of rape, is not a public figure who needs to show actual malice to prevail. In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York federal judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.

    Last fall, Johnathon Schaech was running out of options. After making a living as an actor for 30 years — 1996's That Thing You Do! was his breakout — he was in danger of losing his SAG health insurance from lack of work, and he and his wife were trying to have a baby. Schaech, 50, had become something of an unwitting spokesman for male #MeToo victims in 2018 after he said Italian director Franco Zeffirelli had sexually assaulted him on the set of the movie Sparrow in 1993. (Before Zeffirelli died in June 2019, his son, Pippo, denied the...
  • New Netflix Documentary Explores the US Gymnastics Sex Scandal

    06/27/2020 4:45:47 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | June 27, 2020 | Brad Slager
    On Netflix the new documentary ‘’Athlete A’’ is a very well made and smartly constructed documentary covering the recent exposure of the longterm sexual abuse that was taking place with USA Gymnastics. The title refers to the initial witness who anonymously came forward to state on the record how she, as a gymnast, had been the victim of abuse, and it is a detailed account of how the institutionalized permissiveness of abuse in the organization was exposed. The tale of how an official USA Gymnastics doctor was able to abuse young girls for decades, and be shielded by those who...

    The Conservative Treehouse reported this early Tuesday morning, and now it has been confirmed. The FBI has completed its investigation of the incident in which NASCAR has claimed that someone left a noose in the Talladega Raceway garage assigned to African American driver Bubba Wallace. It turns out the “noose” was actually the pull rope for the garage door, and had been tied in the shape of a tiny noose – so people could get a batter handhold on the damn thing – in the garage since last year, when no one could have possibly known that the garage would...

    Two women have accused Justin Bieber of sexual assault and shared their respective experiences with the musician on social media. On June 20, a woman identified as Danielle posted about her alleged assault on Twitter, detailing how she met Bieber at an Austin music event in March 2014. “My friends and I were enjoying ourselves the entire night,” Danielle wrote. “A man then approached me and my friends and asked us if we wanted to meet Justin. Of course we said yes.” Bieber hung out with the group for a bit, and invited them all to accompany him back to...

    A Navarre High School teacher has been arrested after she allegedly had sex with one of her students at the school last summer. Meghan Mary Rodriguez, 37, was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual assault. She was booked into the Santa Rosa County Jail without bond. Rodriguez quit her job with Santa Rosa County School District on May 28, according to Connie Carnley, the school district’s assistant superintendent for human resources. “It was under investigation, and she chose to leave our employment,” Carnley said. According to Rodriguez’s arrest report, the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip on...

    Popular podcast host Joe Rogan is under fire for an old podcast clip that has surfaced in which he laughs over comments his friend made about coercing women to perform oral sex on him. Attention to celebrities' thoughts on sexual harassment and assault heightened this week after multiple women came forward and alleged that comedian Chris D’Elia sexually harassed them when they were underage. Twitter users resurfaced a clip from 2011 when Rogan hosted comedian Joey Diaz on his podcast. In the clip, Rogan laughs after Diaz boasted that he wouldn't allow women comedians onstage without performing oral sex on...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - “That ’70s Show” actor Danny Masterson was charged with the rapes of three women in the early 2000s, Los Angeles prosecutors said Wednesday, the culmination of a three-year investigation that resulted in a rare arrest of a famous Hollywood figure in the #MeToo era. The three counts of rape by force or fear against Masterson were filed Tuesday, and an arrest warrant isssued. Masterson, 44, was arrested late Wednesday morning, jail records showed. He was released a few hours later after posting bond and is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 18.

    It’s not just the guns, almost every aspect of the cartoon series means it deserves to be canceled.“Looney Tunes” is back, this time on HBO Max, but with one major difference from the original series. In this iteration, when Elmer Fudd goes after Bugs Bunny, he won’t be armed with a rifle, but a scythe. Because if there’s one thing that doesn’t suggest a violent and bloody demise, it’s a scythe.In explaining the change, executive producer Peter Browngardt said, “We’re not doing guns. But we can do cartoony violence — TNT, the Acme stuff. All that was kind of grandfathered...

  • Alyssa Milano: ‘The world is gray’ so I still support Joe Biden (but Brett Kavanaugh was guilty)

    Hot Air ^ | April 30, 2020 | John Sexton
    Sometimes it’s hard not to resort to insults and this is one of those times. Alyssa Milano has written a piece for Deadline explaining why she still supports Joe Biden even though the evidence as it stands now points in the general direction of him being guilty of sexual assault. It has the not terribly original title “Living in the Gray as a Woman.” You can probably imagine without even reading it how this piece is going to attempt to let Milano recede into uncertainty. The person who championed “#BelieveWomen” is now tap-dancing around epistemic uncertainty. But actually, what she’s...
  • Has Lucy Flores Just Handed Trump His Second Term?

    It is surely not her intent, but Democrat Lucy Flores, in triggering a wave of attention to Joe Biden’s handsy moments, may have torpedoed the only Democrat with a chance of beating Donald Trump in nineteen months. The former Lieutenant Gubernatorial candidate from Nevada says she is sharing memories of their 2014 encounter because the behavior she describes is disqualifying. She apparently believes a sufficient number of Democrats feel similarly, to the extent that Biden would be such damaged goods that Trump would win. Because of this, she needs to make the TV rounds with her stories to prevent a...

  • Lucy Flores isn’t alone. Joe Biden’s got a long history of touching women inappropriately

    03/29/2019 6:16:45 PM PDT · by Bigtigermike · 54 replies
    The media gave Biden a pass for years. It won’t in 2020. Flores’s experience isn’t unique. It is no secret in Washington that Biden has touched numerous women inappropriately in public. It’s just never been treated as a serious issue by the mainstream press. Biden’s been caught on camera embracing a female reporter from behind and gripping her above her waist, just below her bust. At a swearing-in ceremony for Defense Secretary Ash Carter, Biden put his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, Carter’s wife, and then leaned in and whispered into her ear. (He’s whispered into many women’s...

    Actress-turned-activist Rose McGowan criticized a New York Times reporter over the weekend for questions allegedly submitted to Tara Reade, accusing the Gray Lady reporter of using "tactics" to twist the minds of readers. Times reporter Lisa Lerer – who is also a CNN analyst – apparently sought a detailed list of answers from Reade, who has accused the Democrats’ presumptive 2020 presidential nominee Joe Biden of sexual assault, which the former vice president has denied. “BREAKING NEWS: New York Times ‘journalist’ sent these questions to Joe Biden’s accuser, Tara Reade. The public needs to see how @llerer and the ‪#NYT...
