Greg Kelly Update: DA Doubts Accuser’s Story

In the New York Post:

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has serious doubts about a woman’s claims that she was raped by Greg Kelly, the TV-anchor son of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, and is leaning toward not filing criminal charges, sources told The Post.

Investigators “don’t buy her story,” a source said yesterday of the woman, a law-firm paralegal who told probers that Greg Kelly got her pregnant during the alleged attack and that she had an abortion.

“It sounds like a bunch of BS.”

Another source said, “It sounds like she got caught [cheating] by her boyfriend, and then he forces her hand: ‘If you’re not lying, you better report.’ ”

The DA’s office is suspicious of the accuser for several reasons, including a three-month lag in reporting the alleged rape to police. Sources told The Post last night that the woman doesn’t remember some details of what Kelly did to her — because she was so intoxicated — but claims she knows they had sex and she didn’t consent.

Investigators also have doubts that a rape victim would stay in contact with her supposed attacker, as the woman claims she did, the sources said.

“The length of time” the woman took to complain “is a problem,” the source said.

And “you don’t communicate with someone who raped you.”

Another law-enforcement source echoed the suspicion: “The fact pattern is very suspicious . . . It just reeks of BS.”

The Gun-Control Debate Could Break America

Last night, the nation witnessed what looked a lot like an extended version of the famous “two minutes hate” from George Orwell’s novel 1984. During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
