Al Sharpton just clears his throat and slowly backs away

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.

Shouldn’t Sharpton feel compelled to help Brawley, as Al might say, “pay we much”? After all, he was the one who was most public in perpetuating the lie (he’s good at things like that). Sharpton could pay off Brawley’s court ordered payment with just a fraction of the money he’s saved dodging taxes, but don’t hold your breath.

    Yep…when you're down on your luck, you find out who your friends are. Sucks for you, Tawana!

    We suspected any settlement attained by Mr. Pagones was pyrrhic in nature. Given she was a minor at the time I see no reason the Race Card Hustlers shouldn't footing this bill?

    If, on her 18th birthday, she refuted the lie, then the issue of majority is the question, but since she kept doing it, she is liable for the damages.

    Maybe Chapoteur could correct me…

    pawn, meet bishop.

    Pawns usually fare badly in these meetings, and so it goes…

    Then again, couldn't the (un)reverened Al be liable as an accomplice in this shakedown attempt?

    Speaking of sex crimes and politicians, Harry Reid had the following to say about the DC articles regarding Sen Menedez and his prostitution problem (Rhetorical question: Why isn't the MSM reporting on Mendez's war on women?):

    “I always consider the source, and all anyone here has to look at is the source where this comes from,” he told reporters. “It's a source that has brought up a lot of non-issues.”

    Yeah cause Harry Reid has such great track records when it comes to sources…just ask his source that told him the Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes in 10 years.

    Calypso Louie, the whole BUNCH of them. They all got on the bandwagon.

    It's funny though, my diehard prog Sis' always "rejoiced" in the diminished social and political presence of The Greatest Generation, and reveled in the Rise of the Boomer Generation ( as the most imperative demographic )

    But is it just me or did Blacks become totally irrelevant on the 7th of November 2012? By aligning 95+% with STIP ( Skin Thin Identity Politics ) they're more pwned than they've ever been since the arrival of the first Gold Coast slave galleons.

    If there was any doubt as to how they'd vote for in a pResidential election given that opportunity, well that has been removed. Call me a raaacist if you must but I'm not the one that voted 'for' them in the light of 20% Unemployment. They're totally out of the picture. To be perfectly honest, So.Are.The.Boomers..!

    Harry Reid`s Family is all about "track records". Rail track and criminal records that is.

    His Great, Great Uncle, Remus Reid, was a horse thief and train robber who served time in prisons and was eventually hanged. A cousin of Harry`s was doing a genealogy of their family and asked if Harry could aid in the research. An aid sent a reply saying, "Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana Railroad. Beginning in 1885, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."

    Yep, I can feel the wind off that spin !

    Oh that is juicy..! Lol, you really don't like this guy do you? Let's just say the pomegranite doesn't fall far from the tree!

    "and all anyone here has to look at is the source where this comes from,”

    SourceS Harry, SOURCES. Take for instance your OWN FBI that kicked in the door on the good 'doctor's' ( read PIMP ) office? I'm sure they do that to ordinary citizens for no apparent reason.

    Especially when that individual had $11 mil. in unpaid taxes…
