At a press conference conducted by Gloria Allred on Thursday, three more women added their names to the list of women who have accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexual assaulting them. Now the list tops more than 40.
The women all told similar stories of being drugged and sexually assaulted in the early 80’s. All three told stories of Cosby drugging and then sexually assaulting them.
According to Janice Baker-Kinney, she allegedly met Cosby in the early ’80s, at a pizza party thrown by the casino where she worked. She says he gave her two pills, which she took, only to wake up the next day in bed with the naked comedian, who told her, “This is between you and me.”
Marcella Tate was a model who visited the Playboy Mansion with Cosby in 1975. After accepting a drink from him, she said her memories got “cloudy,” and she, too, woke up in an unfamiliar bed, with Cosby naked beside her.
Autumn Burns, a model and casino employee in the early ’70s, says Cosby approached her at work and told her he could help her career. He allegedly invited her up to his room, where he gave her a drink that made her feel “woozy,” then assaulted her.
The accusers said they came forward in hopes that Cosby would finally “take responsibility for his conduct towards women.”
That’s a whole lot of not happening.
