20. Could be. But you've suddenly changed your story: a moment ago,
Ardin was (in your view) a member of a "right wing Christian political organization." Now, instead, you advance the view that she's a leftist (or ex-leftist mole) hired to discredit other leftists

This sort of sudden sea-shift can be very costly to credibility in many public forums, (say) TV or radio interviews or public panel conversations

Now, I have no real idea who Ardin is. I do not know whether she consented to protected sex and unexpectedly had an undesired unprotected encounter; whether she is an infatuated control freak who decided Assange was a bit of a cad and decided to teach him a lesson; whether she is mentally unstable and living in a fantasy world; whether she is a rightwing mole who lured Assange into sweden and then carefully arranged to discredit him -- or whatever. The possibilities are not all entirely mutually exclusive. The truth may be (for example) simultaneously complicated and rather ordinary and uninteresting

I don't know. We may never know. But if we think the matter is important, then it is worth getting the details right
