Now we are having prominent people been attacked in this manner with blatantly false accusations that just happen to be in the public sphere right now.
The police need to snap up these accusers and end this nonsense. At the same time the press needs to refer these criminal complaints to determine the existence of criminality before they allow any reporting. In this particular case we have a blackmail attempt known to the victim and a clearly disturbed person as well. Credibility evaporates before you actually check the facts.
Perhaps a suit for reckless libel needs to be pushed.
