U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Aly Raisman Says she was Sexually Abused by U.S. National Team Doctor Larry Nassar
U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Aly Raisman Says Sexually Abused by National Team Doctor Larry Nassar ..
Uhg, it just doesn’t seem to stop. U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by the United States team doctor Larry Nassar. Three weeks ago, Olympian McKayla Maroney broke her silence on Twitter to allege that Nassar preyed on her from the time she was 13 until she left the sport. This is a shame that this has obviously been going on for quite some time, much like the Hollywood systemic sexual abuse. Dr. Nassar, who worked with the U.S. women’s national gymnastics teams for more than two decades, is now in jail. Nassar pleaded guilty to child pornography charges but not guilty to charges of sexual assault.
One of America’s biggest Olympic stars has come forward to accuse the former U.S. women’s gymnastics team doctor of sexual abuse. Aly Raisman, who won six medals, three of them gold, for the U.S. at the last two Olympic Summer Games, says she was sexually abused by Dr. Larry Nassar. Raisman tells her story to Dr. Jon LaPook for a 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Raisman, 23, says she was first treated by Dr. Nassar when she was 15. She talks about her experiences in a new book called “Fierce.” It’s the story of a girl who dreamed of going to the Olympics, and how she realized her goal, but it also includes new insights into a scandal that goes to the highest level of Raisman’s sport.
Raisman says a lot of people have asked her why Nassar’s accusers didn’t speak up sooner.
RAISMAN: Why are we looking at why didn’t the girls speak up? Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?
JON LAPOOK: You’re angry.
RAISMAN: I am angry. I’m really upset because it’s been– I care a lot you know, when I see these young girls that come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just– I can’t– every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think– I just want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this.
In a statement to 60 Minutes, USA Gymnastics said it has made major changes since the Nassar scandal broke. The organization says it recently adopted a new “safe sport policy” that requires “mandatory reporting” of suspicions of sexual abuse and also sets standards to “prevent inappropriate interaction” between athletes and adults. “USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed…” the statement says, “…we want to work with Aly and all interested athletes to keep athletes safe.”
Sean Hannity discusses the news of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Roy Moore.
If the allegations are true, of course Moore should step down. However, how do we find the truth here? The allegations happened more than 30 years ago. Why did these woman wait so long? Were they scared or was it for more nefarious reasons?
If true, Moore should go. If false, how does he get is reputation back? I just have a couple of name to throw out when things like this happen, Richard Jewell and the Duke Lacrosse rape case. The fact that this happened one month before a crucial political election needs to be addressed. Please tell me that we have not fallen that low.
Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Mark Levin Discusses the Allegations Against Judge Roy Moore and Asks, “Why Now?”
MARK LEVIN ASKS, WHY NOW?
Take a good listen to Mark Levin laying out the facts of the case that have been leveled against Judge Roy Moore. Before we jump to conclusions, let’s analyze the accusations at hand. What is up with the timing of this story? Are we really supposed to believe that the WAPO just learned of this news or were they holding on to it for an October surprise? Or in this case because of a special election for Senate in December, a November surprise.
Listen to Levin’s analytical approach. No one knows the truth, these are accusations that are 40 years old. This is not a dirty little secret like the Harvey Weinstein sexual assaults that the MSM helped cover up. This is a shocking event.
We are a victim’s right site; however, I learned a long tome ago during the Duke Lacrosse Rape allegations to not jump to conclusions. How do we find out the truth before the special election? The truth is, we can’t.
From Mark Levin:
Whether innocent or guilty the problem with the Roy Moore accusation is that there is no way to resolve the issue one month before the election. The timing of this makes it impossible to sort through the facts and find the truth. Also, the Washington Post reported that the 4 women didn’t come forward, the Washington Post found them. This whole thing doesn’t smell right. This story was planted and perfectly timed in their hopes to doom Moore’s campaign. We don’t know anything more than what the Washington Post has told us. How did the Post even know there were 4 women, who they were, and how to contact them? You don’t just hear that, especially since the women didn’t know each other. The Post was fed this information by someone or some group. Also, Mitch McConnell is asking Roy Moore to step aside if he is guilty of the accusations against him. You have Bob Menendez a sitting U.S. Senator who is on trial for corruption charges. Why is it that Republicans don’t demand his resignation? Isn’t it amazing that Republicans knew what to say right on cue? They are ready to recruit Luther Strange as a write-in guy.
ADD ANOTHER ONE TO THE LIST OF INDIVIDUALS KEVIN SPACEY HAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED …
From The Boston Globe comes another allegation that actor Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted. Former Channel 5 anchor Heather Unruh accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her teenage son last year on Nantucket. Unrah alleges that Spacey purchased alcohol for her son, who was underage to legally drink, until he was drunk and then stuck his hand inside the man’s pants and grabbed his genitals. It is unreal the crap that this scumbag was allowed to get away with. Not only should his career be over, Spacey needs to be serving prison time. Sorry, Spacey was a sexual predator masking as an actor. Unruh also suggested that Spacey targeted “at least one other person” while visiting Nantucket.
Former Channel 5 anchor Heather Unruh accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her teenage son last year on Nantucket, recounting the alleged attack during an emotional news conference Wednesday that included a vivid description of the encounter.
In July 2016, Unruh said her then 18-year-old son was at The Club Car, where the “House of Cards” actor was among the late-night crowd in the dimly lit restaurant.
Her son was mesmerized by Spacey, 58, Unruh said, and told him he was old enough to drink.
What happened next, Unruh alleged, was criminal. She said Spacey purchased alcohol for her son until he was drunk and then stuck his hand inside the man’s pants and grabbed his genitals.
“The victim, my son, was a star-struck, straight, 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator or that he was about to become his next victim,” said Unruh, who was accompanied by attorney Mitchell Garabedian and her daughter Kyla. “This was a criminal act.”
Flashback – Barbara Walters on ‘The View’ Scolds Corey Feldman For Exposing Hollywood Sexual Abuse in 2013 (VIDEO)
SICK, SICK, SICK … THIS IS HOW AND WHY THE DIRTY LITTLE SECRET WAS ALLOWED TO GO ON IN HOLLYWOOD …
From 2013 comes the interview below from The View, see below video. As actor Corey Feldman is telling the sordid tales of pedophilia in the acting business and Hollywood, all Barbara Walters can do is be more concerned with Hollywood’s reputation, rather than child exploitation. She replied to Feldman’s terrible claims, ”You’re damaging an entire industry.” UNREAL. Hmm. this the media was not covering up for this disgusting and criminal behavior? I guess Barbara was more worried about her meal ticket than children.
Barbara Walters was more concerned with Hollywood’s reputation than Corey Feldman’s allegations of sexual abuse against him as a child.
In a recently resurfaced “The View” interview from 2013, Walters shoots back at Feldman’s story of pedophilia in the business, declaring, “You’re damaging an entire industry.”
