Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis accused of rape, sex assault

LOS ANGELES — A civil lawsuit charging Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis with raping a publicist has prompted three additional women to come forward with their own sexual misconduct accusations, including another publicist who says he forced her to perform oral sex, then raped her.

One of the other women speaking out told The Associated Press that Haggis tried to sexually assault her. “I need to be inside you,” she recalled him saying, before she managed to run away.

    So you can’t say that to just any woman you meet anymore?
    How is she supposed to know that you like her?

    Behind a wall of useful idiots, I wonder if this hysteria is being driven with a view to eventually take down the ultimate target, Trump? Perhaps they don’t realize that if they were somehow to succeed they would be left with President Mike Pence, and then it’s Stepford Wives all ’round!

    If they were raped why did they not report it at the time? I call it more of the same BS.
