Rolling Stone rape reporter a reminder to media and voters that evidence matters in sexual assault charges

But for the short memories of American voters…

The saga of fired Rolling Stone reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely, author of the debunked story about a gang rape at the University of Virginia, should have served as a reminder of the perils of believing one side or another without evidence when it comes to charges of sexual assault.

Erdley was featured on Friday in a timely story on ABC’s “20/20” about the defamation lawsuit stemming from Rolling Stone’s article. She explained why she believed “Jackie,” the student who said she was gang-raped.

“She proved to be credible in so many different ways,” Erdely explained in a deposition. “She was able to furnish me with a lot of different pieces of evidence to back up what she was saying.”

But police failed to reach a conclusion that the incident ever took place.

Evidence matters… or the lack thereof.

Which goes back to the accusations leveled against Donald Trump that are timed so the GOP nominee can’t possibly defend against them before Election Day.

As for the multiple charges Trump has been hit with in the closing days of the election, they could prove to be 100 percent true or every last one may end up being fabricated. The point is, it will take longer than three weeks to adjudicate the claims if that’s even possible.

In the end, it comes down to how smart the American people are and most are probably not as dumb as they think.

Either way, at this stage of the game there’s no way to know if Donald Trump is the sexual predator some are making him out to be and it’s likely the interest in whether he is or not tails off significantly after the presidential election is behind us.
