Ken Lawrence Responds To Rape Allegation — Pauline Braccio tells us that Montco Commissioner Kenneth Lawrence has finally got around to responding to her claim that he raped her in 1990. He said at yesterday’s (June 20) Montgomery County Commissioner meeting that the allegation is false and it never happened.
OK, Ken what is false and never happened? That you and Pauline did not attend Montgomery County Community College together in 1990? That you were both in student activities? That you did not attend a school sponsored student-activities retreat together in the Poconos?
In an affidavit and numerous public statements, Pauline says she was pressured into taking a single drink at a party after which she passed out and woke up on a path to her cabin with you penetrating her.
Is that what you are saying didn’t happen?
Hmmm. Pauline says that when she returned to school stories were spread that she got drunk and misbehaved at the retreat, leading to an admonishment by a faculty advisor and general shaming.
Is that what you are saying didn’t happen? Be careful, that’s something that can be corroborated. What also can be corroborated is if Pauline had a history of drunkenness and hard partying. Do you really want to go there?
We think you did something vile in 1990 and truly harmed a person’s life. A one-off statement without addressing the specifics is not going to change our mind.
