Police say liberal student activist threatened herself with rape in Facebook hoax, framed conservatives

A well-known female liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming (UW) is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative.


The obscene message directed at activist Meg Lanker-Simons was posted on a college “crush” Facebook page earlier this week and immediately ignited outrage from the college community.

“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.  h/t ae

“I will tell you, I believe Meg is innocent of this outrage,” said Kandt, adding she believes the citation issued by police is a “classic case of blaming the victim.”

Kandt said she has spoken with Lanker-Simons following the citation’s issuance.

UW Police, Kandt said, “have bullied her and they have pulled a bluff.”

“This is the worst episode of ‘Law & Order’ you can imagine,” Kandt said.

She added, “I mean, my God, who would do this to herself?” See above;)
