Tawana Brawley served with court order to pay man she accused of rape in 1987
New York Post ^ | 01/31/13 | 50sDad

“For at least 25 years, she has been living a major lie,” said former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones, who was falsely accused of raping Brawley in 1987 and finally tracked her down, thanks to The Post.

“To me, this has always been about responsibility and accountability,’’ added the former ADA, who won the $190,000 defamation lawsuit against Brawley, 40, now a nurse in Virginia, more than a decade ago.

Finally! Rape is a horrible thing; the only thing lower than a rapist is a woman who lies about it, which makes some people ignore the crime when it really happens. I hope she has to pay the FULL amount with interest!

Post-judgment rate of 9 percent simple interest . . . it almost doubles to $380,0000 after eleven years.

Actually an attempted rape did occur. Brawley tried to rape Steve Pagones using the legal system, but was caught. In a just world she would have done time in prison, as well as her legal council.

Wonder if she’s thinking: “Where are Al and Jesse when you need them?”

On every interview with Al Sharpton, I would say only two words: “Tawana Brawley.”

Over and over again, in response to every statement he makes.

She was 15 years old. What judge is going to order a fifteen year old to pay this. Youthful offender applies here. I know she is an adult now, but she wasn't then. The girl was dumb. She stayed out all night with her boyfriend, and made up a crazy story to tell her Mother and Step-dad who she was afraid of. They saw money to be made in it. Al Sharpton and crew after learning that she had made it up continued to pursue it trying to save face. They should be made to pay, and big time.

Surely Al will help her out of the kindness of his heart.

LOL. He should. He perpetuated the “crime.”
He’s the one who blew it up in the press.

I hope the Reverend Al is a co-defendant and jointly liable.

The race hate artists were in their prime when Al Sharpton pulled this fake $hate$ crime. This case really took the wind out of the sails of the race baiting business because it was so widely reported and whites were sick of being scapegoated as racists so fat Albert could get his ugly mug on TV with liberal reporters who could get their rocks off.

It did not work so well with Saint Skittles when they got caught altering the voice recording to give a false sense of racism to Zimmerman’s discussion with the police regarding St. Skittles. Liberals do this fake victim act all the time and they now get caught a lot of the time, thanks to the Reverend Al Sharpton.

I believe Sharpton called them “skillets”.

“But resist, we much… we must… and we will much… about… that… be committed.” – Al Sharpton, August 9, 2011

Hippo-crates couldn’t have sed it better. The illiterate buffoon of the right color with a big yap is allowed a forum to keep him quiet and continue his legal extortion business

Didn’t she continue the lie past her 18th birthday?

I don’t know, I am asking.

Doesn’t Sharpton still owe some cops money from a judgement concerning this case?

The left’s daily assult on America has been going on for quite awhile. Sharpton had / has the full support of the MSM and was well treated by them when he ran for president.

Brawley did not try to rape those innocent white men......she was trying to lynch them....Black Ku Klux Klan style.

Just like they are trying to do with George Zimmerman where I live

...and never forget Yankel Rosenbaum. He was murdered in Crown Heights as much by Big Al as the individual(Lemrick Nelson)eventually convicted. Though ignored, Big Al has a well marked trail of inciting death and violence.
The Brawley crime was in ‘87, Rosenbaum and a black bystander were murdered in ‘91. Facts indicate that Sharpton instigated the destruction by arson of Freddie’s Fashion Mart in ‘95. That act resulted in the deaths of 6-7 store employees.
Indeed, “But resist we much…”
