Haynesworth Sexual-Harrassment Defense: I Don’t “Even Like Black Girls.”

Well, this is certainly a novel defense against sexual harassment allegations:

The latest Associated Press article regarding Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth’s latest legal imbroglio focuses on the fact that prosecutors offered Haynesworth a plea deal, and he refused it.

Haynesworth’s attorney A. Scott Bolden (not to be confused with the Scott Bolden) said that the offer consisted of “no deal at all, nor is it one we would entertain.”

Buried in the article are details regarding Haynesworth’s response to the claim that he touched a waitress at a hotel restaurant inappropriately with a credit card.

“I didn’t touch her,” Haynesworth said, according to documents.  He also explained that he doesn’t “even like black girls.”

Haynesworth even took it a step farther, claiming that the alleged victim was motivated by Haynesworth’s taste in women.

“I know what this is about, she is just upset I have a white girlfriend,” Haynesworth reportedly told detectives.  “I couldn’t tell you the last time I dated a black girl.  She was trying to get with me.”

The rest here.
