Remember how Trump boasted that he could shoot a man in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose any support?

This Philippines guy, Duterte, seems to have the same kind of thing going on. In the past he has essentially admitted to murder, and he's pretty unapologetic about killing people without a trial. Now in a speech he has confessed to sexually assaulting his maid.

But it's OK. He said a few Hail Marys and a few Our Fathers, so all is forgiven.

Duterte: Outrage as Philippines leader describes sexually abusing maid
In a speech, he recalled confessing to a priest how he reached into the maid's underwear as she slept.
Women's rights group Gabriela said Mr Duterte was "unworthy of his position and should resign".
The Philippines president has sparked outrage with a number of provocative comments but remains popular.
In his latest remarks, he described entering the room of his maid while she was sleeping.
"I lifted the blanket... I tried to touch what was inside the panty," he said. "I was touching. She woke up so I left the room."
He said he told the priest that he later returned to the woman's room and tried to molest her again.
Mr Duterte said the priest told him to say "five Our Fathers, five Hail Mary's, because you will go to hell", according to news website Rappler.
So, will the people of the Philippines forgive even this? Is this just like Trump shooting a man on 5th avenue?

There is a rather significant difference between hyperbolic speech and the confession of actual crimes.

I guess the NY Times wants to throw shade on Bernie Sanders.

For Bernie Sanders, Claims of Sexism in 2016 Campaign Hang Over 2020 Bid
In February 2016, Giulianna Di Lauro, a Latino outreach strategist for Senator Bernie Sanders’s presidential operation, complained to her supervisor that she had been harassed by a campaign surrogate whom she drove to events ahead of the Democratic primary in Nevada.

She said the surrogate told her she had “beautiful curly hair” and asked if he could touch it, Ms. Di Lauro said in an interview. Thinking he would just touch a strand, she consented. But she said that he ran his hand through her hair in a “sexual way” and continued to grab, touch and “push my boundaries” for the rest of the day.

“I just wanted to be done with it so badly,” she said.

When she reported the incident to Bill Velazquez, a manager on the Latino outreach team, he told her, “I bet you would have liked it if he were younger,” according to her account and another woman who witnessed the exchange. Then he laughed.

Accounts like Ms. Di Lauro’s — describing episodes of sexual harassment and demeaning treatment as well as pay disparity in Mr. Sanders’s 2016 campaign — have circulated in recent weeks in emails, online comments and private discussions among former supporters. Now, as the Vermont senator tries to build support for a second run at the White House, his perceived failure to address this issue has damaged his progressive bona fides, delegates and nearly a dozen former state and national staff members said in interviews over the last month.
A couple thoughts:

Why wasn't this "campaign surrogate" named?

I wonder if he realized that she was having a negative reaction?

I wonder how often the man thinks that what he's doing is welcome, when actually the woman is not enjoying it at all, but she's afraid to speak up. I hate to "blame the victim" but couldn't she have said something like, "Actually, could you please not touch me? It makes me uncomfortable."?

Sounds like it is a service to avoid any actor/actress you dislike for any reason, not just because of MeToo. If you don't want to watch Tom Cruise movies because you don't want to support Scientology or want to avoid Robert De Nero because he has badmouthed Trump (or because he's an anti-vaxxer, take your pick), that service helps you avoid their movies just as much as those actors accused of sexual harassment. So I don't really see a problem with it, other than the fact that if you really feel that strongly about a particular performer, it's usually just as easy to, say, watch the trailer to see if they are in it. There are people all across the political spectrum who want to avoid certain performers for various reasons (and some for non-political reasons as well). Just a sign of the times.

Hell, there are some actors I avoid for reasons having nothing to do with their personal beliefs, I just think they suck (I am looking at YOU, Jack Black). Could be useful for avoiding them too.

Well, if the law does nothing, perhaps they will sue her into the stone age....
I'm not sure why she wouldn't be charged with false reporting of a crime. Maybe she's mentally ill? Maybe the prosecutors are white knighting?

But not charging her sends the wrong message. People alleging sexual assault need to be heard, but those making demonstrably false claims on such serious charges need to do time.
NOW: The woman who falsely accused a Williamson County man of assault will be arrested
TEMPLE, Texas — Earlier in November, we told you the story of Cristopher Precopia, a Williamson County man who was falsely accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and found himself facing 99 years in prison.

Originally, we reported that Precopia's accuser was not facing any charges.

Now, that has changed.

Jim Nichols, with the Bell County Attorney's Office, has instructed the Temple Police Department to seek a warrant for the arrest of Faith Cox, the woman who falsely accused Precopia.

Cox will be arrested and charged with filing a false police report, which is a Class B misdemeanor and carries a maximum fine of $2,000 and a maximum of 180 days in jail.

Nichols said Cox will turn herself in to authorities, likely next week. She has an attorney.

The Precopia family has been notified of the warrant for Cox's arrest and will likely meet with Nichols in two weeks to discuss the charge against Cox.
Well, I guess that is something. Still note the difference;

Cristopher Precopia was facing up to 99 years in prison,
Faith Cox will be getting (at most) 180 days in jail.

I suppose Ms. Cox will also be forever known as a liar, false accuser, and general all around piece of SHIT....at least for now.

I still hope he sues her into the stone age.

Oh, and FUCK!

Time for another...
She Accused Him Of Rape. Text Messages Proved It Was A Lie.
On December 16, 2018, Nikole P. Tucker reported that she had been forcibly raped by a man while in her dorm at the State University of New York (SUNY) Adirondack. Police responded and began investigating her claims. During the investigation, police discovered text messages between the 20-year-old Tucker and the man she accused, which proved the sexual encounter had been entirely consensual.

“The two had met through an online dating website, and he is not a student at the college. Tucker admitted she made a false report when confronted with evidence that belied her claims, authorities said,” according to a local report from the Post Star.

Police told the Post Star that Tucker “became upset with the man” after their consensual encounter and made up the rape claim.

The man she accused is not a student, so Tucker would not be able to accuse him through the school’s Title IX policy.
Too bad.
She would have had much more mileage with that Kangaroo Court (thank you Barry no-balls Obama) system.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office charged Tucker with “misdemeanor counts of falsely reporting an incident and making a punishable false written statement,” according to the Post Star. She was arrested on December 27 but released pending prosecution in Queensbury Town Court. Her next court date is January 28.

Tucker is simply the latest in a long line of college women making false rape accusations. The most famous recent example is Nikki Yovino, who claimed two Sacred Heart University football players raped her. Yovino was arrested and charged with making the false accusations, and the innocent men she accused are now suing her and the school for allegedly suspending them over the accusations and revoking their scholarships (though the school denies this).
...
Women, we’re told, don’t lie about rape or sexual assault, even though the evidence contradicts this claim.

:doglaugh:

...

Women like Tucker often face little to no actual punishment for their lies, as false allegations — even of the serious crime of rape — are considered mere misdemeanors. Such lax punishment does nothing to deter future false accusers, thereby hurting actual victims who may be more difficult to believe.
Because Vagina!

Well, at least they are now being charged with something! It used to be they just walked.

On the positive side, since they are no longer protected by "rape shield laws," every one is publicly known to be a liar and can be sued.
They are liars!
Liars with little or NO moral understanding of what they are doing, and how it impacts men and women in the future.

For once, men are off the hook for this particular accusation:

Mariah Carey’s Former Personal Assistant Says She Was Held Down And Peed On At Work
The former assistant, Lianna Shakhnazaryan, said she was subjected to pervasive sexual and derogatory abuse in front of the singer. Carey said Shakhnazaryan tried to extort her.
Mariah Carey's former personal assistant is hitting back against allegations that she tried to extort the singer by claiming in a lawsuit that she was subjected to verbal and physical abuse, including being peed on, while on the job.

Included in the allegations filed by Lianna Shakhnazaryan, who also goes by Lianna Azarian, is that Carey’s manager would often yell things at her like "Get that Armenian bitch!" and "Move your fat Armenian ass!" Carey’s then-manager Stella Bulochnikov also allegedly slapped Shakhnazaryan's breast and on multiple times pushed her to the ground and sat and peed on her.
:notsure:

Does that sound a little hard to believe? I think it does. (Outside of Japanese fetish porn.)
Shakhnazaryan said Carey was aware of the conduct and also joined in committing physical, emotional, and psychological attacks. She is suing for sexual battery, discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination.

Carey filed her own lawsuit this week accusing Shakhnazaryan of trying to blackmail her by threatening to release “personally embarrassing and professionally damaging” videos unless the singer paid her $8 million.

According to her 32-page complaint, Shakhnazaryan said she was hired Sept. 21, 2015, to work as Carey’s personal assistant. The job required her to meet constant demands and work around the clock, she said, and she received $328,500 a year in compensation. Shakhnazaryan claims she was also tasked with assisting Bulochnikov.

During that time, Shakhnazaryan alleges Bulochnikov also repeatedly ridiculed her about her breasts and would put iPhones, remote controls, and utensils under them.

An attorney for Bulochnikov did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Either this is like the most hostile work environment ever, and she should have sued them a long time ago, or the blackmail thing sounds kind of likely.

I mean, how many times do you have to be held down and peed on before you call a lawyer? Just strains credulity. Anyway, all 3 of them are female in this case.

I think that, according to the current zeitgeist, this passes the sniff test twice over:

First, you should believe the victim

Second, peeing stories about the rich and powerful are truthful (especially when it involves Russians, and Armenia is right next door to russia! They were colluding for centuries! Centuries! )
