    EXCLUSIVE: US Government is protecting identity of an American diplomat who forced a 22-year-old woman to perform oral sex at a party at his residence, and described himself to guests as being 'as hard as Lenin's statue' The US government is protecting the identity of a senior American diplomat who they determined sexually assaulted a 22-year-old woman at a party he hosted at his residence while stationed at an American embassy. A copy of a report obtained through a Freedom of Information Request by DailyMail.com shows the Treasury Department substantiated an allegation that a high-ranking financial attaché forced the woman...

    State Sen. Stanley Rosenberg, for decades one of the most powerful Democrats in Massachusetts, announced Thursday that he will resign Friday after 31 years as a lawmaker because of a scandal involving his estranged husband. His decision follows Wednesday’s release of an ethics report that states Rosenberg “failed to protect the Senate” from his estranged husband, who faces charges of racially and sexually harassing Senate employees. Rosenberg, 68, of Amherst, a former president of the Massachusetts Senate, was the first openly gay lawmaker to lead a legislative chamber in the Bay State, Boston’s Fox 25 reported. He stepped down as...

He’s charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. A conviction could put him in prison for up to 10 years on each count.

    Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump -- who has himself been repeatedly accused of sexual misconduct -- on Friday designated April 2018 "National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month" amid a national debate over the issue. "Sexual assault crimes remain tragically common in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability," said a proclamation from Trump released by the White House. "These heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately: in intimate relationships, in public spaces, and in the workplace." "Too often, however, the victims of assault remain silent. They may fear retribution from their offender, lack faith in the justice system,...

    President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere,' Barr tweeted on Friday. Also known as 'The Storm', the QAnon theory is based on a series of anonymous and highly cryptic posts on the message board 4Chan, which purport to be written by a high-level insider at the Trump White House. Q is a reference to 'Q-clearance', the Department of Energy security classification that offers the broadest level of access to Top Secret and Secret Restricted Data granted by the...

    Every rape and serious sexual assault case in the country is under review following the collapse of a number of high-profile trials in recent weeks, the Crown Prosecution Service has admitted. Last night Alison Saunders, the director of public prosecutions, revealed that that the review would involve every force in the country in an attempt to improve public confidence in the justice system. It comes after four rape trials collapsed in the space of two months, when it was found that crucial evidence was disclosed just days before the cases were due to be heard in court. Most recently, Oxford...

    Juanita Broaddrick had almost given up by the time she called her grandson from her house in Van Buren, Arkansas, on January 6, 2016. She had been trying, since seeing a video in late November, to send a single tweet, with no success. Her grandson, Ridge, then 13, diagnosed the problem immediately. “Nana, are there red numbers at the bottom?” Broaddrick remembers him asking. When Broaddrick said yes, he explained this meant that the message was over the maximum 140 characters then allowed by Twitter. Broaddrick didn’t tell Ridge what she was trying to tweet when he gave her the...

    Hillary Clinton has finally offered an explanation as to why she didn’t fire a top campaign aide over allegations that he sexually harassed a female staffer. Speaking in a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday night - which she posted just minutes before President Trump’s State of the Union address - Clinton claimed that she kept Burns Strider on her team in 2008 because she "didn't think firing him was the best solution to the problem." "He needed to be punished, change his behavior, and understand why his actions were wrong," she wrote. "The young woman needed to be able to...

    The only thing richer than the Democratic Party’s history of sexual perversion is their astounding willingness to lecture others on the subject. On Friday, we learned of sexual assault allegations against casino magnate and RNC Finance Chairman Steve Wynn. The shocking accounts of his harassment, manipulation and worse paint the picture of the worst kind of cad — or a medium degenerate-level Democratic senator. Hours after the story first appeared in The Wall Street Journal, giddy Democrats were pounding the table and their shih tzu media was yapping about how the Republican National Committee needed to return all of Wynn’s...

    Whoa. Stop the music. When Ethel Merman belted out "There's no business like show business" as Annie Oakley in "Annie Get Your Gun," a little girl could have been forgiven for believing it. On Broadway in 1946, the stars of showbiz, like the stars across the Milky Way, were protected by myths of glamour and mystery, and the studios could keep the bad stuff out of the newspapers. Naughty deeds went undiscovered and unlamented. "Annie Get Your Gun" posed other myths for women to live by. Annie took on her rival, a macho cowboy, and she let him know that...

    I’m finding it kind of hard to keep up with all the rules about sex. On the one hand, it seems like we’re all supposed to be free to have sex with whomever we want, whenever we want, however we want (regardless of whether either party is married, knows one another, or intends to call in the morning). On the other hand, in order to actually have sex, we’re apparently required to obtain written consent — witnessed by a lawyer and signed in triplicate — or else it’s rape. So, are we having all the sex? Or aren’t we?It occurs...

    The Baltimore Sun is reporting that the University of Maryland at College Park is once again under federal investigation over how they respond to reports of sexual violence on campus. Even with recent changes implemented by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos as to how Title IX cases are handled, many investigations stretch on for months or even years longer than they are supposed to under current rules. This is creating a backlog of campus investigations and raising questions of how seriously the university is taking its obligations. The U.S. Department of Education has opened a third investigation into how the...

    A US singer has filed a sexual assault claim against President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. Joy Villa says Mr Lewandowski hit her twice on the backside during an event in Washington last month. She told the US media she spoke to the police on Christmas Eve, having been persuaded to launch a formal complaint by friends. Mr Lewandowski has not responded to US media's requests for comment. The accusations are the latest in a long line of sexual harassment and assault claims linked to celebrities, politicians and companies, which have gathered pace in the past year, particularly...

    Warning: This story includes graphic content. An alleged victim of former Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller is coming forward with accusations that Miller hit and sexually assaulted her while in college. The accusations were eventually addressed by a student court at George Washington University and have been buzzed about in Hollywood and stand-up circles for years. “He just tried a lot of things without asking me, and at no point asked me if I was all right,” the woman told The Daily Beast. “He choke[d] me, and I kept staring at his face hoping he would see that I was...

    Hoffman agrees that The Graduate’s success is a salutary reminder to the film industry of today that it takes bold creative decisions to bust apart conventional wisdom and make films that reflect real people’s lives. However, he’s sceptical about the movies’ ability to tackle racism. “I don’t think that’s ever going to go away,” he says. “I think there’s always going to be some kind of bigotry or some kind of racism. There has to be, because people can’t feel that they have any hero qualities unless there’s someone beneath them.” He laughs. Does that account for the rise of...

    Talk show legend Larry King has been accused of groping an ex-wife of singer Eddie Fisher on two separate occasions, according to a report Monday. Terry Richard told the Daily Mail on Monday that the now-84-year-old Larry King Now and Politicking host groped her in 2005 and 2006, with both alleged incidents coming during baseball awards dinners at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Richard, 63, had reportedly been working as a photographer for the local Tolucan Times when she saw King, whom she had met some months before, at the 2005 dinner. The photographer had reportedly wanted a photograph of...

    It’s not the first time I’ve heard it, but after reading this op-ed from Jay Kaganoff in the Washington Post, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing more of it. After the cacophony of calls for Hollywood moguls and media figures to lose their jobs and elected officials to resign or be removed following allegations of sexual assault and harassment, it was inevitable that Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas’ name would eventually come up. Kaganoff titles his piece, Fellow conservatives, it’s time to call on Clarence Thomas to resign. The author makes at least a partially convincing case, depending on where...

    The Office of House Employment Counsel brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in the New York Democrat’s Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that Payne’s termination did not have to do with the quality of her work, according to her lawsuit.
