Okay, Cathy, you and Daniel want to talk about it? I’ll let you. Right here, tagged with everyone’s name and everything so Google can find it. But to do that, we have to clarify what we are talking about, so I will.
Here’s the rumor as I have heard it.
Daniel Alfonso Madera was having a sexual relationship with BJU student. At some point in that relationship, the girlfriend says that Daniel raped her.
It’s entirely possible, you know, to have an ongoing sexual relationship with somebody and still be raped by that same person.
I know who the girlfriend is, but she hasn’t spoken in public about this that I know of, so I will not use her name. It’s only you and Daniel that keep going apeshit about it.
Anyway, the rumor is that Camille K. Lewis, aided and abetted by you, Cathy Harris, somehow got the BJU administration to not believe the girl and she left town or left school or something. Remember, this is a rumor. It may or may not be true. It’s a rumor.
Camille was able to pull this off, so the rumor goes, because she still had some standing at the university, or perhaps was still employed by the university. Cathy, you have no pull with anyone, as we all know. I don’t know of anyone who thought you were the prime mover. You were just Camille’s little lap dog.
And as a result of this favor that Camille did for you, Daniel, you became another of her lap dogs.
Daniel, you dumb shit, I have heard this rumor from at least a dozen people. At least that many.
As far as the political career stuff is concerned, I figured that part out all on my own. You styled yourself as a Republican. You used that name in your screen name someplace (Twitter?). You were obviously interested in politics in general, and seemed to be sort of into local politics. It wasn’t a stretch to guess that you might think that being a black Republican in Greenville SC might get you noticed politically.
I’m sorry to burst your little bubble, but Beth Murschell was not one of the dozen.
You guys are really big on thinking you know stuff that you simply do not know. Beth Murschell was not one of the sources.
I’ve given up trying to help you guys understand that I never collaborated with Beth, that I really didn’t even know her at all when this started and that I got very little information from her mostly because she just wanted to forget all of you ever existed.
The truth is that I have gotten leads and information and screen shots and stuff from all sorts of people. Lots of different people. Dozens and dozens of them. There are a whole lot of people who do not like Camille K. Lewis and Cathy Harris.
I remember once that Dan Keller tried his damnedest to identify people on the blog who were commenting. It was sort of hilarious because he was just so wrong. He didn’t get any of them right. Beth was blamed a lot, even though she never once commented on that blog except under her real name.
It got to be a game where people created screen names intended to make Cathy and Dan and Camille think they were somebody else.
There were several comments about you, Daniel, on the blog that I didn’t approve because I felt they went way too far into the whole accusatory realm without any facts to back them up. You never saw those, of course. Nobody did.
This was not some pulled-out-of-the-dustbin rumor. It was an ongoing rumor which I heard almost the minute I heard your name for the first time. You act like only three people on earth knew about it. The truth is that everyone knows about it.
For the record, I suspect it’s merely a rumor. I suspect that your version of the story is the truth. I have always thought that. I listened to the story as told to me by several different people (always with slightly different details, as is common with rumors) and came to that conclusion all by myself.
I also sort of get why you might get worked up over somebody bringing it up. There is no statute of limitations on rape in South Carolina and you’d be a black man accused of raping a white woman and that just wouldn’t be much fun and probably not even fair.
You quite rightly and quite understandably don’t want to be accused without evidence.
But you don’t mind one bit accusing Richard Harris with no evidence. Why is that?
See, you nincompoop, coming after me about it won’t help you. Calling me names, as you see, just gets it on the blog with nice Google tags.
I actually didn’t really even look at this at first. Daniel included this screen shot with his original rant which I put above.
He then had the following to say about that.
No, Daniel, nobody read that right.
I didn’t write that screen shot above. That’s not me.
I don’t know who it was. The screen shot has been cropped so I have no way to know. The website is gone and with it all the comments so I cannot check, but that’s not me.
In the first place, it’s not my writing. I never use expressions like “male persuasion” and “not in any way, shape or form. . .” Nor would I ever in a million years abbreviate “bitch” by calling it the b-word. I just say it right out.
You know, along with motherfucker.
In the second place, the commenter goes on to say “Been reading here awhile. . .”
Why would I say that on my own blog, pray tell, oh genius?
Now Daniel is channeling Frank LaFerriere, who is a total lunatic. Whenever Frank gets a friend request from somebody he doesn’t know, he assumes it’s me. And then he threatens me.
Does it make you feel big and important, Daniel, to make threats against a 68-year-old woman?
I had to read this whole thing a few times to be sure that he really does think I wrote that comment above.
This does, though, prove my point. I don’t know who wrote that comment. I assure you it was not Beth Murschell. That’s not her writing either. And whoever wrote it knew all about the whole thing.
Just like I told you, Daniel, this rumor is common knowledge.
