Conservative Posts Alleged Name Of Rape Victim From Rolling Stone Story
Chuck Johnson, who we won’t link to, has published the name “Jackie” as being the alleged name of the victim in the Rolling Stone story. Rolling Stone retracted the story of a gang rape at UVA after a Washington Post story cast the allegations in doubt. Evan McMurray has this to say about it at Mediaite:
If Johnson sounds knowledgable about fabrications, that may be because they seem to follow him around. Johnson was first heard from when he participated in a Daily Caller story about Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Dominican prostitutes that was later revealed to be a hoax. He was then accused by the state of Mississippi of paying witnesses to concoct stories of vote-buying in the MS GOP primary race. He then falsely claimed that slain teenager Michael Brown had a juvenile arrest record (followed by a post of Brown’s Instagram photos, which he claimed proved Brown’s “violent streak”). He was suspended from Twitter twice for publishing the addresses of the two Dallas nurses who contracted ebola, and then falsely accused nurse Kaci Hickox of hiding a supposedly nefarious connection to the CDC.
