As previously reported, court documents revealed that Cosby acknowledged under oath in 2005 that he obtained Quaaludes to give to women with whom he wanted to have sex. The documents weren’t clear on whether the women consented to being drugged. More than two dozen women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct in the past four decades, and many of them alleged that he drugged them before sex.
After this discovery, the leader of a sexual assault awareness group urged the White House to revoke Cosby’s medal. The legendary comedian, who has never been charged with a crime, has denied some accusations while declining to comment or respond to others. [Associated Press]
