It is part of a million-dollar effort by the nonprofit to persuade wavering senators not to back Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court amid sexual assault claims by three women.

    In the wake of Bill Cosby‘s conviction on three counts of sexual assault last month, his wife, Camille Cosby, has issued a lengthy statement defending her husband. In the nearly 800-word statement, she compares Bill Cosby’s accusers to Emmett Till‘s accuser, chastises the media, and calls the district attorney office’s campaign “unethical.” Camille Cosby’s statement: “We the people” are the first three words of our nation’s Constitution, but who were those people in 1787?

    Bill Cosby’s PR team put on a brave face Tuesday after the once-beloved comedian was sentenced to three to 10 years in Pennsylvania state prison. “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened,” publicist Andrew Wyatt told reporters outside the courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, after Cosby was taken into custody following his April conviction for three counts of aggravated sexual assault. “Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus,” Wyatt quickly clarified. “But we know what this country has done to black men for centuries. So Mr. Cosby is doing fine. He’s holding up well and everybody that wants to say anything negative,...

    Judge Steven T. O’Neill made the decision Tuesday, the second day of the sentencing hearing in Norristown, Pa., court — saying, “I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was.” He also ruled that Cosby is a “sexually violent predator” and fined him $25,000. The sentence means that Cosby, once known as “America’s Dad,” will spend at least three years behind bars and then will become eligible for supervised release, although that’s not guaranteed. According to journalist Bobby Allyn who was in the courtroom, the judge will not grant bail and the...

    NORRISTOWN, Pa. (CBS/AP) — Bill Cosby learned his fate inside a Montgomery County courtroom on Tuesday. The 81-year-old actor and comedian has been sentenced to no less than three years in state prison for sexually assaulting a former Temple University employee at his home in 2004.

    NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Declaring Bill Cosby doesn’t deserve a free pass because of his advanced age, prosecutors on Monday asked a judge to sentence the comedian to five to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman, while the defense argued that he is too old and helpless to do time behind bars. “What does an 81-year-old man do in prison?” defense attorney Joseph Green asked on Day 1 of the sentencing hearing for Cosby, who is legally blind and dependent on others. “How does he fight off the people who are trying to extort him,...

    A crew laminated vinyl stars and placed them on blank squares in Hollywood. Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — destroyed on several occasions by detractors who sometimes wield a pick-ax — mysteriously multiplied over night so that on Thursday morning there were several dozen stars. The effort comes from a conservative street artist who wishes to remain anonymous, but says he was motivated not only by the destruction of the president's real star, but also a recent unanimous vote by the West Hollywood City Council to recommend the removal of Trump's star due to accusations he...

    When I heard about the tragic murder of 18-year-old Nia Wilson, who was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack in Oakland last month, I could feel my heart begin to bleed. My community of black women were grieving yet again. As we grappled with the realities of Nia’s death, I began to use Instagram to facilitate a discussion and flesh out questions like: How many more black women and girls must die before mainstream media considers it a worthy story to cover? How could they possibly take away her white male murderer so gently in handcuffs, while black men...

    Hollywood hates Donald Trump so much it doesn’t consider him worth walking on. That’s fine, but how about a little less preening and lot more consistency? The West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution seeking to remove Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s a purely symbolic gesture, since the Walk of Fame is in the City of Los Angeles and is run by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. But the West Hollywood types weren’t going to let such details get in way of some good virtue signaling. The resolution cited Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and...

    Bill Cosby has a lot of legal problems, and he is now preparing to ask the U.S. Supreme Court for review. But it's not over the comedian's sexual assault conviction in April. That case may eventually get to the high court, but for now, Cosby wants the justices to weigh in on a defamation lawsuit he's defending against former supermodel Janice Dickinson. On Friday, in an application for an extension, Cosby's lawyer told Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy of a coming petition for writ of certiorari.

But the job quickly devolved into several months of harassment, she told CNN. She alleges that Freeman subjected her to unwanted touching and comments about her figure and clothing on a near-daily basis. Freeman would rest his hand on her lower back or rub her lower back, she said. In one incident, she said, Freeman "kept trying to lift up my skirt...
