Black woman who accused Bush of rape is DEAD--Shot in the head!
Edited on Thu Dec-04-03 10:47 PM by Truth Hurts A Lot
Margie Schoedinger dies as a result of a gunshot wound to the head.

Margie Schoedinger, the woman who allegedly filed a lawsuit against George W. Bush in December 2002, claiming that she had been raped, has died of a gunshot wound to the head, registered officially as "suicide".

...

Margie Schoedinger further stated that after the claim, she had been
harassed, that her bank account had been interfered with, that she had been threatened and beaten...


Gee... it seems that anyone who crosses Bush (or Blair) ends up committing "suicide."

1. she was a whacko
I researched this one .. the alleged rape was when she was a minor .. she was 38 when she filed charges. Claims she was drugged and raped and her husband may have been drugged so he doesn't know anything. Can't find anything about her husband after the suicide.

Pretty much non-story.

3. Its too bad we keep giving this murderer the benefit of the doubt
I did a search for Margie Schoedinger and 1,140 results were returned. The question is, did she file the lawsuit and is she dead now.

10. Heres one.
http://mensnewsdaily.com/archive/newswire/nw03/mnd/news...

There are three articles on Google. One is to a site called LiberalSlant, so I glanced over it. I don't believe she was murdered by Bush. But I do believe the neocons will murder for thier own ends.

26. In my opinion, Pravda is a more reliable and balanced source than
any U.S. "news" source.

I trust U.S. "news" sources last. Any foreign jounalist is more unbiased than the U.S. gopvernment supporting propogandists.

27. Did you actually read the linked story?
Not one thing written in that story is untrue. The woman filed suit. It gave someparticulars about the suit. It stated that the offical cause of death is listed as "suicide", quoting directly from the coroner's report.

That was a very well written and unbiased account of events.

Read it, these guys at Pravda are better journalists than we have in the United States. They understand what American journalists must be going through these days since they lived under it for decades.

13. she filed the lawsuit
I researched this .. you can do the same thing .. just start reading those stories from google. She doesn't remember much because she was DRUGGED. Her husband *may* have been raped too, but he was drugged before she was so he doesn't even know if SHE got raped. That's the lawsuit... very flimsy.

If you search for Schoedinger you'll find a lot of funeral homes with that name, which is a little bit interesting.

But if a person cannot remember the *crime* (due to alleged drugging), how far do you think a lawsuit would get?

My conclusion was she was emotionally disturbed, and probably never even knew *u*h. You're free to reach your own conclusions.

18. So...
David Duke hates minorities. A person who was a member of a recognized minority group recently was beaten to death in Cincinati. Therefore, David Duke killed the guy in Cincinati.

See the logical problem (other than Duke currently being in prison in another state)?

17. LOL okay... and Russia is a become of freedom and peace right?
please... that country is still a bastion of corruption and power hungry narcissists. I feel so bad for the Russian people. They had to endure almost a century full of evil.

Pravda has changed about as much as ex-KGB Putin has. But I'm sure your knowledge comes from years of living in Russia. Have you even been there? I have. I still have some family. They were forced to march from Serbia after the Allies sold the Balkans out to the Communists.

12. We hurt our own cause when we try to run with this story.
We need to be credible with the public. Clinging to this story, when there are real issues, makes us look like desperate, qullible, and lacking in intelligence. Here is here entire complain. She is obviously nuts. And suicide is not uncommon in the seriously deranged.

MARGIE SCHOEDINGER, IN THE COUNTY CIVIL COURT
Plaintiff AT LAW NUMBER 3
vs.
GEORGE W. BUSH, FORT BEND COUNTY, T E X A S
Defendant
PLAINTIFF'S ORIGINAL PETITION

TO THE HONORABLE JUDGE OF SAID COURT: COMES NOW, MARGIE SCHOEDINGER, Plaintiff,. in the above styled and numbered cause, submitting Plaintiff's Original Petition, and shows the court the following:I.Plaintiff is a resident of Fort Bend County, Texas, residing at XXXXX, Missouri City, Fort Bent County, Texas, 77459. Defendant is George W. Bush, Former Governor of Texas and current President of the United States and can be served with process at: Office of the President of the United States, Executive Office Building, The Executive Office of the President, Washington D. C. 20501.II.On or about,October 26, 2000, an attempt was made to abduct Plaintiff by three unknown assailants. Because of the actions of these assailants, Sugar Land police officers were dispatched to the scene. In the end, no report was taken, the assailants were treated respectfully and allowed to go free while Plaintiff was repeatedly and aggressively questioned. After filing a lawsuit, Plaintiff's family and past contacts were questioned and harassed. As a result, Plaintiff dismissed Plaintiff's lawsuit. Irrespective of Plaintiff dismissing the lawsuit, the harassment continued. At some point, Plaintiff contacted the Houston office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, filing a raced based harassment complaint, advising that the Sugar Land Police Department may or may not be harassing Plaintiff on behalf of her neighbors in Sugar Land or possibly on behalf of the First Colony Community Services Association. The agent in question advised Plaintiff that the situation appeared to be highly organized and most likely higher level, such as a racist organization. III.Eventually the harassment increased to the point where Plaintiff took the step of writing letters directly to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Houston Office. Instead of assisting Plaintiff with her concerns, the FBI took on the same demeanor as the Sugar Land Police Department. Eventually, Plaintiff learned, via telephone conversations, that both the Sugar Land Police Department and the Houston Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations were acting at the behest of the Defendant, George W. Bush. As a part of their defense, the Sugar Land Police Department conducted a background investigation into Plaintiff's past activities. In the end, this investigation yielded the following information: Plaintiff had seven dates, (which became seven lovers), had told no lies, committed no crimes, gotten 2 traffic tickets and dated George W. Bush as a minor. IV Instead of looking at this information and keeping this information concealed, both agencies began revealing this information within their own intranets. In an effort to defend himself, the Defendant and his representatives began contacting Plaintiff regarding the relationship. While Plaintiff assured the Defendant and his representatives that she neither personally revealed this information, nor would she confirm it in any setting, the Defendant, his family and his representatives continued to threaten Plaintiff. V. In the end, Plaintiff learned that while the Defendant and his representatives requested that she be harassed at all costs by both agencies, the Defendant also informed Plaintiff that his only option to assure his never having to answer for the previous contact would be to simply see Plaintiff pressured to the point of committing suicide. Plaintiff s opinion was that Defendant should simply leave Plaintiff to pursue a second attempt at a degree, even a PHd. Additionally, even if the previous contact were revealed in the future, it would be of no consequence. In response to Plaintiff s refusal to give in, Plaintiff s bank account has been expunged, Plaintiff s husband has been dismissed from his place of employment, and Plaintiff has been raped and beaten -which resulted in a miscarriage. Upon going to the hospital, Plaintiff was threatened by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on behalf of the Defendant. The purpose being to keep Plaintiff from remaining in the hospital and be administered thorough treatment. The reason being that the Defendant might have been the father of the child that was lost. VI. Now Plaintiff continues to be threatened. According to the office of the Defendant and the Defendant, Plaintiff s background has been ruined, Plaintiff will never be able to have a clean credit bureau, Plaintiff's husband will never be able to find a job, Plaintiff degrees will continue to be expunged as well as any other achievement on Plaintiff's parts, Plaintiff will be placed on an AIDs watch list for the rest of her life, watched by the CIA, harassed by the Secret Service, placed on the National Security Agency's Photo Array, (which would cause Plaintiff to be considered as a suspect in any crime where the suspect remotely fits Plaintiff s description), Plaintiffs home is under surveillance in a manner that is fully recordable in all aspects and this surveillance is able to be loaded onto an internet page within minutes; including but not limited to prison Web sites, military web sites and any internet locale that might cause Plaintiff to be killed, raped, beaten or put in harms way. Moreover, the Defendant took personal responsibility for these decisions, explaining to Plaintiff that committing suicide would be her best option as in his opinion; Plaintiff is essentially dead in any case. No matter what Plaintiff's background was before, no matter how pristine, Plaintiff would be destroyed completely. At this point, the question repeatedly became whether or not the Defendant could have fathered the child and whether or not the hospital had actually collected the pathology on the unborn child. Finally, we decided that Plaintiff should be killed rather than being harassed to the point of committing suicide. However, the defendant stated he could not convince anyone he could trust to keep the secret to do this for him. The decision then became that the defendant should kill the Plaintiff personally. Instead of following through and just killing Plaintiff', defendant decided to go forth and ruin Plaintiff's life instead. This is the cause of Plaintiff filing this lawsuit. VII.Throughout this conversation, Plaintiff learned that there was no time that the Defendant ever stopped watching Plaintiff, nor did he stop having sex with Plaintiff. The sole concern of the Defendant and his representatives was whether Plaintiff could actually recall the individual sex crimes committed against Plaintiff and Plaintiff's husband, utilizing drugs. Whether or not Plaintiff's husband was raped remains in question, as Plaintiff was drugged after she was raped and her husband was drugged before her rape. Plaintiff can only state that these men purported to be FBI agents raping her for the purpose of covering for how many times they had drugged her and allowed the Defendant to rape her in the same manner. VIII.Plaintiff repeats and re-alleges allegation in Paragraphs I through VII. Plaintiff has sustained 1 million dollars in actual damages and seeks punitive damages in the amount of 49 million dollars for reasons of emotional distress, loss of freedom and ability to pursue Plaintiff's own dreams, alienation of affection from Plaintiff's spouse, loss of privacy, being disparaged on the internet, and loss of Plaintiff ability to be a Christian writer. Plaintiff has suffered all of the aforementioned and more as a result of Defendant's actions as described herein. Plaintiff prays that in addition to the aforementioned recovery, Plaintiff is entitled to recover the costs in preparing this action for trial, pursuing any necessary appeal of this action and retaining an attorney to pursue said action. WHEREFORE, Plaintiff prays that the Defendant, be sited to appear and answer, and that on final trial, Plaintiff be granted the following: 1. Judgment against defendant for actual damage suffered by the Plaintiff. 2. Judgment against the defendant for punitive damage. 3. A further judgment against the defendant in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court. 4. Costs of Suit. 5. Pre-Judgment Interest. 6. Post-Judgment Interest. 7. Such other and further relief to which Plaintiff may be justly entitled. RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED, Dated this 2nd day of December, 2002 Margie D. Schoedinger

Edited on Thu Dec-04-03 11:45 PM by Tinoire
They make similar posts in other threads because heaven forbid the Republicans and Bush-defenders make fun of them for frequenting such an outlandish forum where people actaully think for themselves and sift through everything to find the news the media won't report.

Maybe this is a non-story, maybe it's not.

It's a damn good thing this wasn't the spirit when 911 happened and we started researching and sifting.

Peace and welcome to DU! :toast:

16. excuse me
There are at least two posters who HAVE researched this story. We are reporting what we discovered.

The posters here just asking questions, seeking validation for a quasi-theory, seem to be the ones unwilling to go do the homework to decide for themselves.

I don't just swallow what someone puts forth. If it's important to me, I research it until I can come to a conclusion that satisfies me.

I'm not afraid of anyone making fun of me. But I don't feel compelled to agree with anyone who states:
"Gee... it seems that anyone who crosses Bush (or Blair) ends up committing "suicide." "
... just because they are posting on DU.

19. read Jackson Thoreau's pieces on Schoedinger
Edited on Fri Dec-05-03 12:32 AM by Minstrel Boy
Unlike us, he spoke to her. It's her accusations that sound crazy, not Schoedinger, if you get my distinction. Either she was delusional, or crazy things were done to her. And frankly, I believe Bush and his kin guiltier of crazier things than this.

Thoreau (the first two articles were written before her death; the last, after):

Schoedinger didnt sound like the average crackpot. She sounded intelligent, articulate, soft-spoken, and yeah, even honest over the phone, for whatever thats worth. I know many people who sound honest like a certain White House occupant at times are really not. But my point is that Schoedinger didnt sound like she was on drugs, although being drugged by federal agents is part of her lawsuit.

...

To be sure, Schoedingers accusations which include being drugged and assaulted numerous times by Bush and men purporting to be FBI agents - are bizarre enough and hard for the average, television-media-brainwashed drone to believe. But to those of us who search beyond our conventional media and go places relatively few dare, her story could be true. Who the hell besides Schoedinger and Bush and a few others really knows?

Strange things have occurred in human history, probably stranger than we can imagine. The U.S. government like most governments contains its share of evil bastards who would think nothing of doing more than assaults to people. These are people without consciences, without caring about any cosmic, karmic principle that you reap what you sow.

Ive learned about too many strange deaths and mind-control experiments and sex orgies that the CIA and other parties play around with to know that they occur. Each one I hear about makes me madder and more determined to do something to stop the madness. My contribution is to keep trying to expose these bastards evil deeds to the light of day, to side with the truth-and-justice seekers, even if we are sorely overmatched, even if we are laughed at and discredited in an attempt to divert attention from whats really going on. Evil bastards hate the light they like to operate in the dark, behind the scenes.
http://www.opednews.com/thoreau_USmediastillrefuses.htm


A lot of people read Schoedinger's accusations and found them hard to believe. The accusations sound wild to me, but you just never know -- I try to keep an open mind. I did hear from some people who detailed weird mind-control incidents themselves. I think it's important for people to contact the media on it because the media reports so much on Democrats' scandals. This article will remind them of the Republican sex scandals. It might get them to call Bush's media people and make them squirm. It will also help protect Schoedinger. The more people who know about her, especially in the media, the less likely something stranger -- like a suicide -- might occur.
http://www.americanpolitics.com/20030724Thoreau.html



But I remember being puzzled by Schoedingers attitude after hanging up the phone. I wondered that if she had made up such a wild story, why she didn't come up with something a little less outlandish, in which people couldn't necessarily dismiss her as a kook. I wondered why she didn't seek publicity to at least provide some form of protection. I've long learned that being as public as possible is one of your best defenses against rogue intelligence agents. But she didn't even seem to want any media to cover her story. I told several writers I knew, some of whom tried to contact Schoedinger. None succeeded, as far as I know.

I remember thinking, "I hope she doesn't wind up on the wrong side of a gun." And sure enough, in late September, Schoedinger did.

...

For all I know, maybe Schoedinger did kill herself. Maybe she dreamed up a lot of this stuff. But I don't know, am I "deranged" to think it's weird that in this mass-media, detailed-information age, so few people are even asking any questions about how a woman who filed a rape lawsuit against the president could be dead less than a year later?

22. Here is proof that this is garbage:
Edited on Fri Dec-05-03 02:04 AM by Silverhair
Here is the link:
http://www.alco.org/history/bush /

Bush was in Indiana that day. (Oct 26, 2000 was on a Friday that year.)Earlier in the day he was in Michigan, dropped down into Indiana, then back to Michigan. Not enough time to run down to Houston and rape her.

No I am not "defending" Bush. I am defending DU and the Democratic Party from the embarassment of people who will run with stuff like this without even doing a small amount of research.

If I were wanting to help Bush, I would try to spread this wide and make sure that it was coming from a source identifable as part of the Democratic Party. It would then help bring the Party into disrepute and hurt our credibility. And that is what the tinfoil hat brigade is doing.

So give it up. He was hundreds of miles away giving campaign speeches. He was trying to win an election.

And read her complaint. She is clearly delusional. The reason the real media won't touch this is that they know it is bogus. I am sorry if that busts any bubbles, but it is the real truth.

Of course, I past esperience is any guide, the tinfoil hatters will simply weave the Indiana appearance into the cover-up story. After all, being a tinfoil hatter is more about religion than it is about logic.

The Oct. 2000 date was the date of an alleged abduction by three unknown assailants. The rape allegedly occurred when she was a minor--years ago.

31. You are probably right about her mental stability
If you read the story, the Pravda writer makes no conclusion. He merely reports the facts that she filed, some particulars about the filing, the fact that she is dead from a gun shot wound and that said death has been ruled a suicide.

32. I don't mean to deter people from researching this
Just that , this story will be very easily dismissed
by skeptics .

I suppose it could be proven that it was the truama
of the alledged rape and the cover up that pushed her
mental balance off kilter.

However I also believe it would benefit us to
be extremely careful and skeptical ourselves .

33. You can't dismiss this story at all
Edited on Fri Dec-05-03 05:04 PM by Walt Starr
because the story simply states what I listed above. There are no conclusions and no inferences as to the validity of her filing, only that she filed, some of the particulars of that filing, the fact that this woman has died froma gun shot wound and that her death has been ruled a suicide.

Edited to add: A person who believed she was 100% whacko could point to this story as evidence she was whacko because she committed suicide just as easily as somebody who believes she had been raped could point to the "convenience" of her "suicide".

This was a fair story. They reported and the readers draw inferences based upon their own biases.

37. I don't necessarily believe she was raped,
and she might have been mentally ill. Even if she had never been raped and was mentally ill, might someone want to shut her up for the sake of convenience?

Actually, this story, in my mind, is an excellent illustration of the "liberal" press. Imagine if this had been Clinton. What I find interesting is the press ignoring the whole thing.

35. BULLSHIT!
This story is NOT a Red Herring. It is factually accurate and draws no conclusions. As I stated above, if one believes this woman was whacko, one could point to this story to show she had to be whacko because she committed suicide. Just as easily, one could point to this story and state that the "suicide" is "convenient". The story itself cannot be held accountable for inferences drawn by readers of the story as the story itself does not draw any inference. It merely reports the facts.

It is a very accurate story and an example of real journalism, something sorely lacking in the Untied States at this time.

38. It's an accurate story on crazy person
I'm an attorney. You can file a suit on anything. I've seen a man file suit against Satan. . . . and the judge write a comical opinion dismissing it, citing the Devil v. Daniel Webster.

It's a whacky complaint filed by someone who appeared to be a paranoid schizophrenic from where I am sitting.

But then again, maybe Bush and the FBI often perform gang rapes on men who can't remember them.
