Duke Lacrosse Players: Argument Over Money Central to Case
Looks like my take was the right one
:Several Duke lacrosse players who say they were at a team party the night of the alleged rape of a 27-year-old woman have told ESPN's George Smith that an argument over money and the amount of time two exotic dancers were expected to perform was at the center of a dispute that night.
The players, who agreed to speak with ESPN on the condition their names not be used, also admitted that slurs and bad language were used by some players and the dancers during the argument.
Meanwhile, the father appears on Rita Cosby and makes new claims
:The father of the accuser in the rape case involving Duke University lacrosse players said his daughter was raped with a broomstick during a party last month, and that explains defense lawyers' claims that no DNA from players was found on her.
The woman's father, appearing Tuesday night on MSNBC's "Rita Cosby Live & Direct," said his daughter told him that when three team members raped and sodomized her, they also used a broom.
The father said he learned about the broom from others, "and then she told me afterwards because she didn't want me to know that part," he said.
But:In papers filed with the court, police who searched the Buchanan Boulevard house where the party occurred made no mention of seizing a broomstick. And a broomstick was not among the items that police said they wanted to seize when they applied for the search warrant.
