It had been rumored for years, but had never been confirmed until the AP's investigation: Entertainer Bill Cosby drugged women for sex. The AP — through the institutional beat knowledge and persistence of Legal Affairs reporter Maryclaire Dale in Philadelphia — managed to pry loose decade-old documents that showed the comedian admitting under oath that he had gotten quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women with whom he wanted to have sex. The documents also showed Cosby admitting to a series of extramarital affairs, his alleged efforts to mentor and ultimately seduce naive, young women, and his defense team's combative, arguably evasive, responses at the deposition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6WPJCCxi_s
