It is clear what Gloria Allred is doing. She is using the fact the NFL is getting crushed on their domestic violence and sexual assault policy (rightfully so) to bring attention to herself. With that being said any allegation of rape is very serious and if it is indeed true a player was accused that should be investigated by the NFL.
Here is what Allred is claiming happened last Saturday according to NY Daily News.
High-octane attorney Gloria Allred laid out some of the details in a Friday letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, asking if the league knew the rape suspect was allowed to take the field on Sunday.
“We represent a young woman who made a police report last Saturday alleging that an NFL player on an NFL team had raped her that morning,” Allred said in a press release.
“Thereafter, the accused was then allowed by his team to play the next day.”
Allred told the Daily News that she personally hand-delivered the letter to the NFL’s Park Ave. offices, an apparent shot at the league’s claim that it never received a mailed security video in the Ray Rice assault on his then-fiancée.
Allred, who provided no information about her client, said she was assured the letter “would be taken upstairs to (Goodell’s) office and delivered to the commissioner immediately.”
This could be a publicity stunt and without any details, I caution everyone to not jump any conclusions. Especially, Allred isn’t above of running a false claim just to help herself. Allred gave Goodell a Monday deadline to reply to her. If and when the police make a statement we will provide an update.
