Gloria & Her Fifteen Minutes

Doesn't Gloria Allred have anything better to do? If she isn't a lawyer for every mistress in this country, she's a lawyer for someone else.

Her latest client is an actress who claims that Roman Polanski sexually abused her when she was 16. I don't know if the story is true or not, but I do have a few questions.

1. If she was raped by Roman Polanski, why the hell did she make a movie for him four years later? Was she that desperate for a job or a buck that she was willing to work for her RAPIST? I don't care how desperate I was for a job or a buck. I would never work for a man who raped me.

Hell, I quit my job because a co-worker threatened to kill people at work and nobody took it seriously. I needed that job and the money. But I wasn't willing to sacrifice my self-respect or my safety for that job or the money.

2. Why didn't she report the crime in France when it happened? Even if nobody believed her or he was found not guilty it would have at least been reported.

3. Why now? She claims that the reason she came forward now was because "he was fighting extradition and that his legal team is portraying his previous offense against a minor as an isolated instance."

Unless she doesn't own a tv, a radio, doesn't read a newspaper/magazine, or use the Internet, there is no way in hell that she hasn't heard about his arrest in Switzerland or his fight for extradition until now.

4. What does she hope to gain from this? Money? Fame?

By the way, Gloria Allred might want to give the correct advice to her clients. As far as we're being told, this woman never filed a report over the alleged rape. Thus, nobody knows what really happened. He was never charged with raping her in France. So, he doesn't have a legal history in this "case". And the United States courts can't charge him for an alleged rape that took place in another country because they don't have jurisdiction.

So what's my point? My point is, this woman's allegation can't be used to influence any sentencing decision that is made if or when Roman Polanski is extradited from Switzerland. If they attempt to use it to influence his sentence, I believe he has major grounds for an appeal.

Gloria Allred needs to go away because her 15 minutes have long since expired!! What's that I hear? Oh, it's another mistress calling!!
