Alleges rape by Cosby

17 Nov, 2014

Cosby is accused of rape in an essay written by Joan Tarshis. In the essay, published in Hollywood Elsewhere, Tarshis alleges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1969.

I had heard and/or strongly suspected I was not the only white girl he had drugged and raped but I never had any proof. No one began talking until 2004. And though I knew I should say something, I still felt ashamed. Ashamed that I didn’t earlier. In any event now, as more and more of his rape victims have come forward, all telling similar stories, the time is right to join them.
