Tucker Carlson accused of rape
the story's in a excerpt from his book now posted on Salon.com . . . there was nothing to the accusation, of course, but it's an interesting vignette on the hazards of celebrity . . . or maybe it's just the hazards of being Tucker Carlson . . .

"Sept. 13, 2003 | It was June 2001, and I had just gotten off the "Crossfire" set when one of our producers handed me a stack of mail. On the way to the elevator, I glanced at it. On top of the pile was a registered letter from a law firm. It got my attention immediately. I've never had a pleasant letter from a lawyer.

"This one was worse than most. It was written by an attorney in Indiana named Paul M. Blanton who wanted to let me know that his client, a woman named *Elizabeth Jansen, was planning to file criminal sex charges against me in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. "Ms. has informed me that she was raped by you," Blanton wrote. "If you should have any questions or concerns about any of the aforementioned, please do not hesitate to contact me."

much more . . .

1. It's a disgusting story....
I'm not fond of Tucker Carlson, but what that sick woman did to him is despicable. Now he's out $14K because she's mentally ill.

2. Any questions??
I would think so! Like what the f*ck is this all about?

A few months ago there was some woman down in Texas who accused Bush of rape. Her statement was pretty biarre sounding. I wonder what ever happened with that.
