“When Kathy and several other women came forward, he denied everything and suggested that the victims were looking for a paycheck. Only after repeated denials were proven false did he deny everything. The fact that he had to apologize shows his pathetic desperation, and no one will ever apologize.” His insincere words upset me. ”
