25 years after her rape claims sparked a firestorm, Tawana Brawley avoids the spotlight
New York Post ^ | December 23, 2012 | MICHAEL GARTLAND

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.

By all appearances, her life — so chaotic a quarter-century ago — now seems normal.

Brawley, using aliases such as Thompson and Gutierrez, now has a young daughter, a neighbor says, and works as a licensed practical nurse at The Laurels of Bon Air in Richmond, where co-workers were clueless about her past.

At least she’s not up on a murder charge, like Crystal Mangum.

Avoids the spotlight? Most vermin avoid light period. Besides, are we to believe that there is a ready spotlight available to her, should she decide to step into it?

As the article indicated, she works as an LPN at a nursing home. Doubt she's on welfare. Maybe fat and unmarried though, Who knows. Who cares.

This dumb girl (she wrote "Ete me" on her own stomach) just wanted to avoid getting in trouble with her parents for staying out all night, and concocted this story.

Race-baiting scumbuckets like Al Sharpton and Alton Maddox conflated it into the circus it became.

They all knew it was a lie and they ruined people's lives over it, all to push their hate-filled agenda.

Now Al Sharpton is a respectable Democratic political leader and a political analyst for MSNBC.

He's never renounced his behavior in the Tawana story or his Freddy's Fashionmart protests that incited arson and the murder of eight people. And MSNBC and the Democratic party never sought any apology or renouncement of those activities. They supported that sort of behavior then and they still do now.

Why Tawana, you lying POS. How much did Al and his buddies pay you for that stunt?

Man's got to build his creds before working at that august establishment.

Hope this article causes her grief and puts her on the run. She ruined a mans life. She deserves the same.

So the woman is trying to live quietly and get on with her life, but some half-assed journalist hunts her down, goes around telling her co-workers who she rally is posts her picture in the paper and outs her to the world.

I am sure she appreciates it.

The question is why can they hunt this woman down, find her alias, question her friends and cannot find out anything about Barrack Obama?

By the way Al Sharpton has not become a respectable journalist, He is still a race hustling pimp with a greasy head, and hate for whitey in his heart.

Two generations of family disfunctionals/criminals on stage now with a young third generation in the wings being raised by an unmarried mother.....and maybe or maybe not by a shadowy man reportedly lurking about her apartment.

Just another All-American Family.

Sorry but I’m willing to bet that she is drawing welfare under one of her three last names.

Thanks to Tawana, we now have one of the biggest Black Ku Klux Klan Racists running around...Al Sharpton

Sharpton has now graduated from trying to lynch cops....to lynching assault victims like George Zimmerman. Thanks Turdwana!
