    Rape-hoax $lap

    EXCLUSIVE

    Infamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her.

    “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.
    At 9 percent interest, that debt, which Brawley never attempted to pay off, now totals $431,492, according to the wage-garnishment papers filed in Virginia’s Surry County Court.

    Brawley — whose unbelievable lies made the Rev. Al Sharpton a household name as he bombastically championed her cause — had changed her name and moved down South in the years since she was exposed.

    Her fugitive-like antics long thwarted Pagones’ efforts to serve her with the court papers needed to get the financial damages due him.

    Al Sharpton should offer to pay the damages on her behalf.

    Maybe Johnnie Cochran will cough up again, too.

    He's dead, Jim.



    Please don't lump Cochran in with Sharpton. Johnnie was a lawyer, and a good one, who presented the best defense he could, which was what he was paid to do. Christopher Darden said that he was badly treated by the LA prosecutor's office-they used him on the OJ case because he was black, then blamed him for the loss afterward and tried to ruin his career. He said that when he started out in private practice, Johnnie Cochran sent cases his way to help him out.


    Sharpton is a sleazebag who occasionally gives a speech or something that is hilarious. I wish no one had ever taken him seriously as a "civil rights activist".

    Cochran is no better. His work for Geronimo Pratt was a disgusting charade that put a murderer back on the street and netted him millions of dollars based on outright lies:

    In 1972 Pratt was convicted of the Olsen murder. His counsel in the trial was a young Johnnie Cochran, who would eventually become widely known for his defense of O.J. Simpson in the latter's 1995 murder trial. Cochran has written that it was the Pratt case that radicalized him and convinced him that the American justice system was systemically biased against African Americans. Cochran also believed that his failure to "play the race card" (i.e., depict his client as the victim of a racist justice system) caused him to lose the case, a mistake he vowed never to make again.

    Pratt's case soon became a cause celebre for leftists around the world. A coalition of Democratic political figures (including Maxine Waters, Willie Brown, and Pete McCloskey, among others) and Hollywood activists (such as Ed Asner and Mike Farrell) publicly rushed to his defense. In a similar spirit, a number of notable organizations sought to free Pratt, or failing that, to at least gain him a new trial. Among these groups were the California Democratic Council, the American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International, Refuse & Resist!, and the Maoist Internationalist Movement (which cited Pratt's case as "proof" that the American justice system was fundamentally racist).

    In making his case for a re-trial, Johnnie Cochran depicted the FBI as a band of racists intent on convicting a black radical at any cost. He asserted that the prosecution was attempting to frame Pratt as political retribution because he was a Black Panther.

    In 1997 Judge Everett Dickey ordered the State of California to give Pratt a new trial, despite the fact that most of the material witnesses were now dead, and that the intervening 25 years had blurred witnesses' memories. The salient reason cited by Judge Dickey for overturning the original 1972 verdict was that the prosecution had concealed the "fact" that "[Julius Butler] had been, for at least three years before Pratt’s trial, providing information about the Black Panther Party and individuals associated with it to law enforcement agencies on a confidential basis."

    But Dickey's premise was false. Butler had absolutely no contact with the FBI or law enforcement prior to his delivery of a sealed letter to Sergeant Duwayne Rice of the Los Angeles Police Department on August 10, 1969, eight months after the Olsen murder and less than two years before the trial. The letter's identification of Geronimo Pratt as Olsen's killer was available to the jury and was a centerpiece of the court proceeding, a fact that was not even addressed in Dickey's opinion. Moreover, Butler's testimony at the original trial was entirely consistent with the information contained in the incriminating letter and with his behavior throughout the case.

    In Pratt’s new trial, Bobby Seale and Elaine Brown changed their testimony entirely, this time in Pratt’s favor. In June 1997, Pratt was released from prison on $25,000 bail. He was hailed by the left as an American Nelson Mandela and was offered numerous book and movie deals.

    Reflecting in September 1997 on Pratt's turn of fortune, social commentator David Horowitz wrote: “Why hasn't justice prevailed in this matter? Why is a clearly guilty individual free? The answer lies in the climate of the times, in which the testimony of officers of the law have become more readily impeachable than the testimony of criminals. As in the O.J. Simpson trial, the appeals process in the Pratt case has been turned by Johnnie Cochran into a class action libel against the FBI, the police, the prosecution and its chief witness. And as in the Simpson case, Johnnie Cochran's fictional melodrama has won out over the politically incorrect truth.”

    In September 1999 the ACLU of Southern California (ACLU-SC) reported that Pratt would file a civil rights lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles, five retired LAPD officers, seven former FBI agents, and Julius Butler. Pratt claimed that those defendants had conspired to convict him. "Geronimo Pratt's fight for justice will continue," said ACLU-SC Chief Counsel Michael Small. In addition to the ACLU, Pratt was also represented by Johnnie Cochran and Stuart Hanlon, a San Francisco civil rights lawyer who had been part of Pratt's legal team for more than 25 years.

    In April 2000, a federal judge approved a $4.5 million settlement of the Pratt lawsuit
    Cochran was slicker than Sharpton (Law school will do that for you), but he was as complete a moral vaccuum as any of the other racial arsonists.

    Leave her enough for rent and PB&J. Garnish the rest.

    Think up some criminal charges too. When the debt is paid off, lock her up.
    Be Not Afraid.

    The statute of limitations won't allow criminal charges to be brought for the original hoax, but she may be subject to a contempt citation if she doesn't pay, which I suspect she won't, but she can always pull a Sharpton and get supporters to pony up.

    Not for the hoax. Criminal charges for lamming it, fraud, deception, whatever, after all these years of avoiding paying.

    If someone wants to pay her debt, fine, just give the guy his money.

    That's how Sharpton paid his off, by having others do it, but the defamation in this case is so personal and vile that it warrants making her pay out of pocket.
