There are some real investigative journalists still out there. One of them works for the New York Post. Tawana Brawley, the lying teenager who scrawled racist slurs on herself and covered herself with feces, claimed on national TV that she was raped by racist white men and left for dead in a garbage bag. Al Sharpton was propelled into the national spotlight riding on the coattails of this racist lie and fake hate crime. Steven Pagones was accused of raping Brawley three dozen times the night she went missing, and this was years before Viagra was invented. Pagones sued Brawley for defamation and Brawley went on the lam. But she has turned up working as a nurse in a Virginia Nursing Home, and now its time for this lying bitch to pay up.
From the NYPost here:
Infamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her.
“For at least 25 years, she has been living a major lie,” said former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones, who was falsely accused of raping Brawley in 1987 and finally tracked her down, thanks to The Post.
The former ADA, won the $190,000 defamation lawsuit against Brawley, 40, now a nurse in Virginia, more than a decade ago. At 9 percent interest, that debt, which Brawley never attempted to pay off, now totals $431,492, according to the wage-garnishment papers filed in Virginia’s Surry County Court.
Brawley — whose unbelievable lies made the Rev. Al Sharpton a household name as he bombastically championed her cause — had changed her name and moved down South in the years since she was exposed. Her fugitive-like antics long thwarted Pagones’ efforts to serve her with the court papers needed to get the financial damages due him.
She was living under the assumed name of Tawana Vacenia Thompson Gutierrez in Hopewell, Va., and working as a licensed nurse at The Laurels of Bon Air, a nursing home in nearby Richmond.
The single mom’s wages could be docked 10 to 25 percent per paycheck as retribution for her lies.
Seemingly a lifetime ago, a 15-year-old Brawley of Wappingers Falls in Dutchess County was found in a trash bag covered in feces with the words “nigger” and “bitch” scrawled upside down on her body and “KKK” carved into her shoe.
Sharpton immediately took up her cause as she claimed she was attacked by a gang of white men, including Pagones.
When 28-year-old Fishkill Police Officer Harry Crist Jr., committed suicide a week later — likely over a romantic breakup and failing the New York State Police exam — Sharpton and his allies used the incident to accuse Crist of participating in the rape. When Pagones, a friend of Crist, offered an alibi for his besmirched dead friend, he found himself accused of raping Brawley nearly three dozen times.
After a year of hell, a grand jury found Brawley’s accusations without any merit. She likely fabricated the story because she feared her stepfather’s wrath for staying out late, according to the grand-jury evidence.
Don’t you think its great that Tawana Brawley is living the Single Black Mother American Democrat Dream? At least she was working for a paycheck, but one has to wonder whether or not that nursing home would have knowingly hired an infamous fake hate crimer? Regardless, its time for Tawana Brawley to pay for her fraudulent claims.
