Alleged Cosby sex victims want full deposition released

Bill Cosby 5

Two alleged Bill Cosby victims called Monday for the publication of a full deposition by the comedian, after unsealed transcripts showed him admitting to drugging at least one woman for sex.

Embattled actor Cosby has been accused of attacks going back decades by some 30 women, but last week’s unsealed documents were his first apparent admission of guilt.

“It is important for the world to know the truth about how Bill Cosby hunted me like a predator,” said Beth Ferrier, appearing alongside Rebecca Lynn Neal and their lawyer Gloria Allred.

Allred added: “What we filed today in the United States Eastern Court of Pennsylvania is a memorandum for the release of the entire transcript” of the deposition, dating from 2005.

“We’re interested… because we don’t know if Mr Cosby testified further about Rebecca and about Beth, and if he did what he stated,” added Allred, who represents 16 alleged victims of Cosby.

Cosby admitted in documents released last week that in 1976 he had supplied Quaaludes — a strong depressant widely used in the 1960s and 70s — to a woman who later accused him of sexual assault.

“I meet Ms (T, whose name was redacted to preserve her anonymity) in Las Vegas. She meets me back stage. I give her Quaaludes,” he said in the deposition. “We then have sex.”

Cosby was the face of “The Cosby Show,” the family sitcom that was a huge hit in the 1980s and 1990s, making the actor a household name in the US and around the world.

Before that, Cosby was well known as a standup comedian and as one of the few black actors at the time to land lead roles, including in the hit secret-agent TV series “I Spy.”

But from one of America’s best-loved celebrities Cosby has gone to one of its most reviled.

The entertainer was forced to resign from the board of Temple University, his alma mater, last December, as sexual abuse allegations against him mounted.

He has also canceled several comedy engagements and a Cosby television special that was planned for late last year was scuttled.

    Now wakina Gesami are working in cohorts to swindle funds meant for the youths?  You see, what I dont understand is  why this champion of “cleaning curruption” is still standing ?.  Money is stolen from his basket, and he is telling us that it will be refunded?  From whose account? and what happens to those who took that money?  Slap them on the wrist and continue business and usual?  Bwana RAILA, it is time you walk the walk, otherwise you coil that “rolly pop ” of yours and never again open your mouth that someone else is corrupt.  I dare you to resign if you are man enough since that has always been your forte.  Its is bitter when it comes to you, but sweet on others. Bullshit!

    When i hear Ruto and company speak against Raila, I love Raila more because they appear like clowns on stage desperately trying to force laughter from their sympathetic audience. The Rutos of this country use Railas name as their oxygen, they always miss the point by shadow boxing all the days of their lives……….
