Ex-player Corey Maggette named in Duke rape case, report says
    ESPN
Feb. 12, 2019

The woman at the center of Duke's investigation into an alleged 1999 sexual assault told friends that Corey Maggette is the basketball player who raped her, according to a report by the New York Times.

The lawyer for Meredith Watson said in a statement Friday that Watson had been raped by a former Duke basketball player but did not identify the player. The Times reported Monday that both a childhood friend of Watson's, and Facebook messages Watson exchanged with another friend, identified the player in question as Maggette, who went on to play 14 years in the NBA after attending Duke for one year.

Maggette denied the allegations in a statement to the Times. ...

Watson also has said that Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax sexually assaulted her on Duke's campus in Durham, North Carolina, when they were both students in 2000. A Facebook message from Watson acquired by the Times said she did not report the alleged Fairfax assault after the university discouraged her from pursuing the earlier case against Maggette. ...

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

It's kinda funny how all of these rape allegations are inadvertently putting a little thing like Trump's private convo "grab em by the bleep" in perspective as a big, fat nothing-burger.  Another unintended consequence for the idiot left. 
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)
