Former News Anchor Says Kevin Spacey Sexually Assaulted Her Son in 2016

Famed author and journalist Gay Talese has a message for all the alleged victims of actor Kevin Spacey's sexual misconduct: "Suck it up". I can assure you this is not the kind of attention anyone wants.

It's true that there's great value in profiling complex and unethical people and-at their best-these profiles can encourage empathy (not always sympathy, mind you) and a better understanding of the capabilities and failings of the human character.

Unruh said her son filed a police report last week with the Nantucket Police Department and that a criminal investigation is underway.

It seems like more problems are coming up for Kevin Spacey, who plays Frank Underwood in the political drama "House of Cards".

Seated to her right at the press briefing was attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has years of experience having represented victims of sexual abuse by the Catholic Church.

Spacey also came out as gay in the same statement saying, "As those closest to me know, in my life I have had relationships with both men and women".

Liberia's presidential run-off has been postponed indefinitely
The Weah-Boakai runoff was triggered after no single candidate gained more than 50 percent of votes, though Weah topped the poll. Boakai is accusing the president of interfering in the October election by holding private meetings with election magistrates.

She said Spacey invited her son to a party before briefly stepping away to use the bathroom.

News had come that afternoon that Netflix was cutting ties with the House of Cards star after multiple men had accused him of sexual harassment, beginning with actor Anthony Rapp, who told BuzzFeed that Spacey made a sexual advance towards him in 1986, when he was 14.

Unruh said she "wants to see" Spacey go to jail and have the "hand of justice come down on him".

Since Rapp made his allegations, Spacey has been hit by at least 10 other claims. Last week, a representative for the actor confirmed he was seeking treatment. "No other information will be available at this time". CNN managed to talk to a couple of current and former employees of the show who either experienced being sexually harassed by Spacey or witnessed his rude behavior over the last several years. "We will continue to work with [production company] MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show".

Unruh said she knows of at least one other young man who was "targeted" by Spacey on the MA island. Spacey is also an executive producer on the series.
