On Sunday night at the second presidential debate, Team Trump gave Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathy Shelton, who they claim are victims of Bill Clinton’s, front row seats. However, Broaddrick’s accusations were debunked by her own words in sworn testimony.
As for Kathy Shelton, she was paid by a political action committee founded by Roger Stone and she’s not a victim of Bill or Hillary Clinton’s.
The Associated Press reports:
A sexual-assault victim who is critical of Hillary Clinton and who appeared alongside Donald Trump before Sunday night’s debate was paid $2,500 by a political action committee founded by Trump ally Roger Stone.
The Arkansas woman, Kathy Shelton, was sexually assaulted at age 12 and was the victim in a 1975 case in which Clinton was appointed to represent her then-41-year-old attacker, Thomas Alfred Taylor. Shelton has accused Clinton of crossing ethical bounds in the case, and over the past few months, Shelton has given TV and video interviews slamming Clinton.
The May payment Shelton received by the Committee to Restore America’s Greatness PAC, founded by Stone, was described as “contract labor” in campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
So the Associated Press asked Stone why Shelton was given that payment. In an email, he said Shelton “was extensively interviewed on video about her experience with Hillary Clinton and was paid for her time.”
A judge asked Clinton in 1975 to oversee the case to represent Shelton’s alleged attacker. Clinton, who was 27 at the time, tried to get out of it, but the judge insisted she represent the man. Shelton was not Hillary’s victim but it appears that Stone is victimizing her again in order to deflect from Trump’s Pussygate scandal.
Stone sought to raise money to pay off Kathleen Willey’s mortgage earlier this year.
Trump’s campaign has not endorsed Stone’s political action committee, and has sent the group a cease and desist letter. The campaign has denied that Trump gave money to Willey’s mortgage fund….
Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email Sunday that the campaign paid for Juanita Broaddrick’s travel to the debate. “She was our invited guest,” Hicks wrote.
The Trump campaign invited the women then denied paying at least one of them off.
