Sex Scandals: The Whole Story
This is the transcript of the introduction for this episode of the Christopher Scott Talk Show Podcast:
According to Time magazine 95 public figures have been accused of sexual harassment just since the Harvey Weinstein story broke. The stories are endless.
Last week a report was made about a 22 year old female student teacher at a Connecticut High School. She's charged with sexual assault for her encounters with an 18 year old male student back in December and January.
This year the senate confirmed it paid out $2.5 million dollars of tax payer money over the last 20 years to years to settle sexual harassment claims against senators. And ironically, last weekend the latest sequel of Fifty Shades of Gray opened to a huge weekend making the total revenue from the series over a billion dollars.
Sex sells meanwhile companies pay for sexual harassment. The whole situation has turned into an ugly national soap opera. The problem has effected companies, the media, Hollywood, teachers and even government.
It's even gotten the attention of the president. He sent out a Tweet last week saying, "People's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?"
That's one question. What about the falsely accused people who are innocent. There's no standard of justice. Allegations are made and if they come from 3 or 4 women it's curtains for you.
What about the rest of the story? What about the lives, careers and families that have been destroyed? Oh, and, there's that one other little issue, what about all the victims? What about the destruction of their lives? What do we do about it?
