Greg Kelly accused of rape
If you watch The Soup, you're probably pretty familiar with Greg Kelly, host of Good Day New York. He's been featured in numerous clips, mainly because half the time he seems genuinely annoyed that he's on TV and has to work. That may not be a problem anymore because some chick in New York just accused him of rape. Which is sort of a big deal because he's also the son of Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. The New York Times says:
The woman, who is in her late 20s or early 30s, walked into the 13th Precinct station house with her sister sometime after 8 p.m. on Tuesday and made her complaint, according to one of the law enforcement officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the continuing investigation and the sensitivity of discussing accusations against the police commissioner’s son.It seems to me that, if this chick didn't want to be raped, maybe she shouldn't have been dressed so sexy. She was practically asking for it . . . what? I happen to be a fan of rape defenses from the 1970s.
The woman told the police that she met the younger Mr. Kelly on the street and that the two went to South Street Seaport for drinks on Oct. 8. They then proceeded to her office at a Lower Manhattan law firm. The woman told the police that the rape occurred at the office. The two continued to have contact by phone and text message after the encounter.
According to the woman’s account, when her boyfriend later learned about the night, he became angry. He then approached the police commissioner at a public event and told him that the younger Mr. Kelly had sexually assaulted his girlfriend.
