Another Rape Allegation Bites the Dust

Jaimie Lee Jones, a cause celebre for Sen. Al Franken after she claimed to have been gang raped by fellow workers at KBR in Iraq, has lost her civil lawsuit in Texas.

Her story was lurid but so full of holes the Space Shuttle fleet could have flown through it.

Even the left-wing author of the this Mother Jones story on the trial had to admit being surprised by the lack of evidence and inconsistencies in Jones' tale.

Kim Strassel sees the episode of an effort of the Trial Bar to open up new courses of legal action with the help of gullible (and bought off) senators like Franken.

What a dope!

The link to the Mother Jones post which is referenced above is apparently not working... If you are interested in seeing it, and I hope you will take the time to do so, it is:

Post link is fixed. While it takes some time to read the entire thing, it is a startling example of how the plaintiff's bar works. Throw a bunch of crap at the wall (i.e. the jury) and let's see what sticks. Fortunately in this case not much was able to stand the truth of what happened... Rare it is that truth prevails. Say what you want to say about military contractors, dis as you may Halliburton and KBR, this is a wake up call for all of us who have to bear the burden of frivilous lawsuits...
