  • can't say as i blame the guy. Especially since she has never apologized or cleared the record.
  • Kinda curious to why she had the largest bill; the others seem to have had a much larger hand in the false accusations against him.
  • Waldo Pepper: Too bad he can't hit Big Al up and take it all


    Rev. Al already paid his share of the lawsuit he's free and clear.
  • "He'll be scrubbing toilets in Tijuana, for pennies, and I'll be standing over him to get my cut."

  • Because it was only $185k, but thanks to interest and *hand waving* jedi mind tricks, that amount has gone up considerably... And it was back a few years, but thats what I got out of it from RTFA...
  • Can he also go after Spike Lee for reinforcing the lie that Twana told the truth?
  • Good. Make her little lying ass pay up!

    Yep, she's the last one of the people he got the judgement against who hasn't either paid up or is in the process of paying up (one of her lawyers, since dis-barred, is currently being garnished). And her share is so big now because of interest on the original amount.
  • Cue black outrage in 3, 2, 1...

    Interest. Also, she is the only one who isn't a lawyer or can afford a good one.
  • Who wants to hear some "Ike" jokes?????
  • People who make false rape accusations are a special kind of shiatty.

    I'm not as inclined to feel as much disdain for her as I am for Al Sharpton.  It's clear she made the story up to cover something up, and it was Sharpton and his scumbag buddies who turned it into what it became.  I don't think that was her intention at all.

    Of course, she had the power to end it at any time.

    And Al paid up damn quick, to get it behind him.
  • Why wasn't she prosecuted for making false statements? Is perjury not a crime in US criminal cases?

    / I know it's legal to lie in a civil writ, at least in CA, as I've been on the receiving end
  • Only thing I will complain about here: She was 15. Are 15yos liable? Fully liable? Even somewhat liable? Fifteens can't into licensured driving.
  • Good luck with that. $175 a week will pay off that $429,000 in roughly 47 years.
  • Off Topic: Rev. Al Sharpton was "ordained" at the age of ten and doesn't actually have any religious training.
  • I remember the case quite well, and was not surprised when it came out she had lied. However, I don't recall the media reporting the defamation judgments at all -- unlike their rabid coverage of the original story. In any case, any monies he gets will unlikely make up for losing his job as prosecutor and the crap he had to deal with because she lied so her mama wouldn't whip her arse for whoring around.
  • Easy to guess, but unable to be sure the type of advice, encoragement, brainwashing that Sharpton and others pushed onto her. She was only 15, but surely old enough to understand wrong from right.
    It was her that initiated the situation. So ultimetly it was up to her to end the farce that it was. Not that it would have been easy for her to throw off the pressure. Still, it started with her, and she should bare the brunt of the penilties for it.
    Sharpton and other should do the right thing and admitt their part in fanning the flames, and pitch in to set things right. But they won't, its not in their nature to admitt fault. That would mean they would have to admitt that they are as racist, if not more so, than those they accused

    FTFA: Sharpton paid his $66,000 judgment to Pagones, with help from OJ Simpson lawyer Johnnie Cochran and others.

    More than likely, Reverend Slimy never paid a cent, he had his wealthy friends pay the penalty, just as he has others pay for everything else. Slimeball.

    She made up a story that didn't blame anyone specifically - just "some white guys did it". The accusations of specific people didn't happen until the other DB's got involved.

    I believe they should receive the same punishment as an actual rapist.
