An early look at how Clinton deals with crisis(Savages 12yr old Rape Victim!!)

However, that account leaves out attempting to impugn the credibility of the victim.

Rodham questioned the sixth grader's honesty and claimed she had made false accusations in the past. She implied that the girl often fantasized and sought out "older men" like Taylor, according to a July 1975 affidavit signed "Hillary D. Rodham" in compact cursive.

In terms of what's good for the little girl? It would have been hell on the victim. But that wasn't Hillary's problem.

The victim, now 46, told Newsday that she was raped by Taylor, denied that she wanted any relationship with him and blamed him for contributing to three decades of severe depression and other personal problems.

"It's not true, I never sought out older men - I was raped," the woman said in an interview in the fall. Newsday is withholding her name as the victim of a sex crime.

With all the anguish she'd felt over the case in the years since, there was one thing she never realized - that the lawyer for the man she reviles was none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

"I have to understand that she was representing Taylor," she said when interviewed in prison last fall. "I'm sure Hillary was just doing her job."

In late 1974, Rodham arrived in Fayetteville, Ark., after working for nearly a year on the legal staff of the House committee investigating Watergate. Her friends thought she was throwing away a promising big-city career, but she was intent on helping her boyfriend Bill Clinton get elected to Congress that year and was intrigued by her new job running the university's nascent legal aid clinic.

Or perhaps she has a thing against white-bread, middle class girls and women. You know, women like... herself.

Legal aid/public defender is tough work, you represent scum and ethically you must do it to the best of your ability. This sounds pretty unfair to me and I’d vote for Satan before Hillary.

Use of false affidavits to attack or delay/deny/obfuscate certainly fits Hillary's later pattern of behavior.

Then there was her not passing the New York bar exam but passing the Ark. bar. That also probably had something to do with it.

So she gets scum out of legal fixes. Is that our Hillary?

Of course a defense attorney is usually required to represent scum.

What's interesting about this is that Hillary used a defense tactic which feminists abhor: making the putative rape victim's consensual sex life the subject of the trial.

Feminists were screaming bloody murder when supporters of the Duke Three suggesting looking into Crystal Gail Mangum's life story.

"I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and to engage in fantasizing," wrote Rodham, without referring to the source of that allegation. "I have also been informed that she has in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body."

WOW, Shrillary kicked off her career of attacking, demeaning, and discrediting women's stories of rape, harassment, and abuse with this assault on a 12 YEAR OLD GIRL. Amazing.

I do understand the principle of everyone is entitled to a defense in our legal system, but that does NOT mean everyone is entitled to such a depraved and dishonest defence!!! This is the worst aspect of our adversarial system, the prevailing idea that absolutely any b.s. that can be thrown up by an aggressive defense lawyer should be admitted and allowed to influence the case. A good judge should be free to exclude such a line of defence by demanding, in private session, the evidence (non-existent probably) that allowed Shrillary to claim "I have been informed that....." she smeared this terrible young rape victim without a shred of evidence for "blaming the victim" it would appear...... but of course the vicious Hildebeast went on to make a career out of "blaming the victim" whenever it was a woman standing in the path of the Clintonista juggernaut.

A recurring theme for this so-called woman.

If the perp is a Kennedy or a lowlife skid-row drunk (but I repeat myself), defense council can hit the victim with everything but the kitchen sink. Remember Martha Moxley and Patricia Bowman.

I believe that an attorney can be disbarred for making knowingly false statements.

I have hated Hillary since 1992. I knew she was a liar for Bill way back then. Seems her modus operandi is to lie. That being said, I hope she wins the nomination. Her loss will be that much more disappointing to her. It might even make her cry and have yet another public temper tantrum.

People with ethics don’t represent scum. Their ethics wouldn’t allow it.

Ah, yes, the great crusader for “women and children”. This was an absolutely chilling account of how a very young victim was re-victimized by the judicial system.

Granted, “defense” attorneys are, absolutely, the slimiest, most despicable, bottom feeding scum on the planet, but this is a new low, even by that standard. Particularly when the perpetrator then alleges to represent the rights and welfare of children. Just incredible, but pure Hillary.
