Hillary Rodham Clinton attacked 12-Year old rape victim’s credibility in 1975
Hillary Rodham Clinton in 1975 defended an alleged pedophile who allegedly raped a 12 year old in his car. According to a 2008 Newsday article (which has suddenly disappeared from the Internet) Hillary Rodham supposedly questioned the sixth grader’s honesty and claimed she had made false accusations in the past. Rodham/Clinton implied that the girl often fantasized and sought out “older men” like Taylor. The proof of Rodham/Clinton part is in a July 1975 affidavit signed “Hillary D. Rodham” in compact cursive. A year earlier, Hillary Rodham/Clinton was kicked off the Watergate committee for fraud and ethics violations. The alleged rape victim suffered severe depression and other personal problems since the incident. Here is yet another fine example of the progressive liberal Democrats war on women that they always accuse Republicans of waging. But you know, abortion on demand and all is really what are important to women according to these progressive Democrats like Hillary.

In May 1975, Washington County prosecutor Mahlon Gibson called Rodham, who had taken over the law clinic months earlier, to tell her she’d been appointed to represent a hard-drinking factory worker named Thomas Alfred Taylor, who had requested a female attorney.
During her first few months on the case, Rodham fired off no fewer than 19 subpoenas, affidavits and motions – almost as much paper as was typical for a capital murder case that year, according to case files on microfilm.
She successfully petitioned to obtain Taylor’s underwear for independent testing after the state medical examiner found traces of semen and blood. She also secured Taylor’s release on $5,000 bond after getting his boss at the factory to vouch for him.
But the record shows that Rodham was also intent on questioning the girl’s credibility. That line of defense crystallized in a July 28, 1975, affidavit requesting the girl undergo a psychiatric examination at the university’s clinic.
“I have been informed that the complainant is emotionally unstable with a tendency to seek out older men and to engage in fantasizing,” wrote Rodham, without referring to the source of that allegation. “I have also been informed that she has in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body.”
