Bill Cosby admitted to purchasing sedatives with the intent of using them on women he wanted to have sex with, back in a 2005 deposition.
The deposition documents were released Monday after the AP went to court to demand their publication—they had previously been sealed at the request of Cosby’s attorneys, who were concerned the contents would ”embarrass’ their client.
No shit Sherlock…Because there's few things more embarrassing than admitting to drugging women for the purpose of sex…
Oh, and also, nothing more incriminating when facing a slew of accusations that you’ve drugged and raped other women in similar circumstances.
As Popdust previously reported, since last November, at least 40 women have come forward accusing the 77-year-old comedian of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them, with the earliest alleged incident dating back to 1965, and the most recent, 2008.
Cosby has kept schtum on the subject, offering up no comment on either the ever increasing number of allegations against him, or the cancellation of several of his shows last fall.
The deposition admission was made under oath as Cosby testified as part of a sexual abuse lawsuit that was filed by a former Temple University employee named Andrea Constand, back in 2005.
In the deposition, Cosby admitted to purchasing Quaaludes with the intent to give them to women he wanted to have sex with. He also ‘fessed up to drugging Constand with three half-pills of Benadryl.
The lawsuit was settled for undisclosed terms in 2006…. and good old Dr. Huxtable went on to (allegedly) rape another day.
Famous Female Rape Apologists—From Diane Keaton To Barbara Walters!
Serena Williams on Stuben rape victims: “Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you: don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different.”
Mia Farrow testifying on behalf of Roman Polanski:
“Of his frame of mind when we were there, of what we talked about, of his utter sense of loss, of despair and bewilderment and shock and love - a love he had lost. Of this I can be sure. I would not have left him in Elaine's unattended without trusted friends ...”
Judy Finnegan on convicted rapist footballer Ched Evans:
“He’s served his time. The rape and I am not, please, by any means minimising any kind of rape – but the rape was not violent. He didn’t cause any bodily harm to the person. It was unpleasant, in a hotel room, I believe, and she was – she had far too much to drink. That is reprehensible, but he has been convicted and he has served his time. Now when he comes out, what are we supposed to do? Just actually refuse to let him do his job? Again, even though he has already been punished?”
Helen Mirren on convicted rapist Mike Tyson: "It’s such a tricky area, isn’t it? Especially if there is no violence. I mean, look at Mike Tyson. I don’t think he was a rapist. I guess it is one of the many subtle parts of the men/women relationship that has to be negotiated and worked out between them.”
Diane Keaton on Woody Allen:
"He's the strongest person I've met in my life. He's made of steel. And talk about a work ethic – he's one of the people that really did teach me that you have to work hard. But he wanted to. He's the most disciplined person I've known, with the exception of my dad... Oh, well, yes. I love him."
"I have nothing to say about that. Except: I believe my friend."
Debra Winger on Roman Polanski:
“We hope today this latest (arrest) order will be dropped. It is based on a three-decades-old case that is dead but for minor technicalities. We stand by him and await his release and his next masterpiece.
“We came to Zurich to honor Roman Polanski as a great artist but under these sad and arcane circumstances we can only think of him today as a human being uncertain of the year ahead. His life has always informed his art and it always will.”
Barbara Walters on Woody Allen:
"I have rarely seen a father as sensitive, as loving and as caring as Woody is and Soon-Yi to these two girls. I don't know about Dylan. I can only tell you what I have seen now. That it's a good marriage, and he's a loving, caring father. I think that has to be said."
Whoopi Goldberg on Roman Polanski and Samantha Geimer:
“I know it wasn't rape-rape. It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and when they let him out he was like "You know what this guy's going to give me a hundred years in jail I'm not staying, so that's why he left.”
Vanessa Bryant's husband (and meal ticket) Kobe raped a 19-year-old girl but Vanessa got a giant ring out of the incident, so clearly alls well that ends well there.
