Duke Lacrosse Scandal: "Breaking a Sweat"

Dan Abrams Dan Abrams of MSNBC's The Abrams Report is getting worked up over the Duke lacrosse case.

Watching him debate the case with Georgia Goslee and Pam Bondi is good TV.

It was definitely the most interesting thing on out of six channels at the local health club. A dozen women on their treadmills were transfixed by the verbal sparing on Monday. This case has become like a gender litmus test for feminists.

Part of the transcript:

GOSLEE: This case is not over.

ABRAMS: Wait. You presume she was raped, right?

GOSLEE: Yes, yes.

ABRAMS: OK. So, therefore, you’re presuming that she’s telling the truth about what happened. GOSLEE: I presume that she was raped.

ABRAMS: By somebody.

GOSLEE: By somebody, yes.

ABRAMS: And that’s based on — even though we learned recently from the medical report that there was no vaginal or anal tearing.

GOSLEE: No, that was the defense’s spin...

ABRAMS: No, that’s the discovery.

ABRAMS: That’s a fact.

GOSLEE: Well, let me ask you this then. Let me ask you, Dan, if she — if there were no vaginal tears, what was the basis of the indictment for the original medical examination...

ABRAMS: That’s a great question...


BONDI: ... he [Nifong] believes he has a case, and that’s why we’re hoping there is more, because he did charge these three young men.

ABRAMS: My producer just told me that I’m breaking a sweat
