25 years after her rape claims sparked
a firestorm, Tawana Brawley
avoids the spotlight

New York Post, by MICHAEL GARTLAND

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 12/23/2012 9:27:29 AM

Her silence is deafening.Twenty-five years after the spotlight first glared on Tawana Brawley — a black woman who as a teen claimed she was raped by a gang of white men, smeared with feces and stuffed in a garbage bag — she’s desperately struggling to stay hidden from public view. “I don’t want to talk to anyone about that,” Brawley, 40, said recently after The Post found her in Hopewell, Va., where she lives in a neatly kept brick apartment complex with signs warning of video surveillance cameras.

The difference with the Centrl Park jogger case was that the five lads admitted that they committed the crime.

Skank is too good a word for this lying cow. I lived in Hyde Park and was called for jury duty and was in the court house when the skank and sharpton waltzed by us to
leave the court house. No one believed her that had a brain. Her neighbors were laughing their heads off as she was a big liar and was sneaking out to meet whoever. They left Poughkeepsie and would have been run out on a rail if we had had our way. Sharpton is a fat short media hunter and a liar to boot. They would not dare come back to that area.

An apology from this woman and an explanation as to why she did what she did would go a long way towards helping me forgive her. OTOH, apologies from Sharpton or from his two attorney colleagues would never suffice; they were and remain malicious race-baiters, blights not only on their race, but on humanity.

I am inclined to forgive Ms Brawley. She made a mistake as teenagers, does not purport to be person of the cloth and has shunned the lime light since then.

On the other hand, the Reverend Sharpton has yet to apolgive,for the Brawley fraud, or any other his his frauds, basks in the lime light and continues to pontficate as his scat did not stink.

Anybody who is up, out the door and headed to work at 6:30 AM deserves credit. She took the time and effort to earn her specialized training as an LPN. That license does not come out of a crackerjack box. She is credited by co workers with being a good worker.

While the Rev. Al and the MSM are still making headlines with preposterous narratives about "racist" events that never happened, it appears she has been busy in the real world, working and contributing something of value to society.

They should leave her alone. What she did was despicable, but the involvement of Sharpton and the other guy (whose name escapes me, unfortunately) is what really caused all this. She was very young and I think she was tricked. If her upbringing had been better, maybe she would not have been so easily led to the lie.

She works a living, hopefully pays her taxes, I say give her some peace. It´s Sharpton who continues to play this card and who should be in prison.

The word rape is from a quote of a statement by a 15 year old child. And it was shown beyond a reasonable doubt that there was no rape. So the headline should have quotes to read "rape".

But what do I know? I didn´t go to journalism school so I still believe that headlines should tell the truth instead of a spreading a sensational lie.

Tawana is now an insignificant little cipher. Sharpton, however, the parasite who launched his national career by using her, continues to be an honored member of the Democrat Party and has his own TV show. Just imagine if this, with races reversed, had involved a Conservative white preacher.

I do not agree to cutting her any slack at all, the men she accused of raping her were losing their jobs and wives - finally one man found some black that would talk and that was when she should have been jailed and kept there. No apologies, no nothing from this dirty brat.

She was 15 at the time. Lied and then was easily manipulated. Not excusing her, but not going to make it out to be like she was a 30 year old adult. She is a nurse and apparently does some good in this world. Sharpton etc took advantage of her. How Christianlike of many of you.

No sympathy. I´m glad they tracked her down. She is a reminder of what a liar and scoundrel Sharpton is, and this story should dog him the rest of his days.

Sharpton and Brawley ruined lives and cost the taxpayers heavily. They should have gone to jail.

By changing names for the fraudulent purpose of hiding from her debt, she is still breaking the law.

Media and particularly cable news has never been as polarized as it is today. It’s also never been tilted more towards opinion and less toward objective reporting of hard news. As a result, trust in media has fallen to an all-time low. Reporters in particular are looked upon as dishonest brokers in the business, with Gallup showing only 20 percent of those polled finding journalists honest and ethical (that’s 65 percent lower than nurses, 50 percent lower than doctors and engineers). Solid investigative reporters are simply in short supply and demand. Why? Because with opinion programming so much cheaper to produce

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth´s shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event. "Definitely worth the early wake-up call," skywatcher Brett Bonine of Arkansas told Space.com in an email.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
