‘These gals stopped a rape last night’: How 3 women kept a stranger from being roofied in LA

Published

on

In a Facebook post caught by Jezebel, a woman described how she and two friends kept a total stranger from being drugged and raped by a man she identified as “one of her best friends.”

Writing on Facebook, Sonia Ulrich explains the she and her friends Monica and Marla were having drinks at Fig in Los Angeles when one of them spotted a man slipping something into his dining partner’s drink.

“I was going on about something and saw Monica staring behind and making a funny face. I stopped. ‘What’s going on?’ After a few second she said ‘That guy just put something in her drink.'” Ulrich recounts.

Following the woman into the bathroom, Ulrich said she confronted her to tell her what they saw.

“Hey! Um, this is kind of weird, but, uh, we saw the guy you were with put something in your drink,” she wrote. “‘Oh My God!’ she said. Shocked, kind of numb, so I babbled ‘Yeah, my girlfriend said she saw him put something in your drink and we had to say something. Woman to woman…you know. We had to say something. How well do you know that guy?’ I was expecting to hear ‘We just met,’ but I got: ‘He’s one of my best friends.'”

According to Ulrich, the woman returned to her table and avoided her drink despite her partner repeatedly clinking his glass against hers in an effort to get her to drink up.

While she was in the bathroom with the woman, Ulrich’s companion Marla spoke with a server telling her what she saw which then led to the restaurant manager checking up on the couple.

After being forced to sit for 40 excruciating minutes with the man who was attempting to drug her, the restaurant delayed delivering the check to the couple until the police arrived and took the man into custody without complaint.

“The head of security came by and said that because we notified them immediately, they were able to go back and review the footage from the security camera,” Ulrich wrote.  “They got him on tape. They had proof of him drugging this girl. They took the glass away as evidence. They kept us for statements. We asked the girl if she had a ride home. ‘My car is at his place. In his building. We came together.’ Part of a plan. We were blown away. She was still in shock.”

According to Ulrich, as Jezebel relayed,  other diners became aware of what had happened and stopped by to thank them — many relaying personal horror stories.

“At least 10 stories of being personally affected buy someone like this. Something like this. Those were only the ones who knew what went down. I am sure there were tons more stories through out the restaurant and the hotel,” she wrote.

‘Disillusioned’ Trump megadonors have completely bailed on his 2020 campaign: report

Published

Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman reports that hedge-fund tycoon Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah Mercer are "disillusioned" and have all but disappeared from the political scene as the president is gearing up his 2020 campaign.

‘Expect the worst’ as Trump doubles down on racist rhetoric to rile up his base: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Daily Beast, commentator and Sirius radio host Dean Obeidallah claims that all signs point to Donald Trump doubling down on racist rhetoric in an effort to rally his base as his internal polling shows him losing the key states that propelled him to the White House.

As Trump officially launches his re-election bid in Orlando on Tuesday night, Obeidallah notes Trump is falling back on what helped him appeal to disgruntled white workers in the Midwest and that he will likely ramp up attacks on undocumented immigrants -- including official actions.

‘It can be hacked’: Election experts already see red flags in the Democrats’ 2020 nomination process

Published

on

The Democratic National Committee may reverse course on its plans to increase participation in 2020 presidential caucus states by offering off-site voting options—starting with telephone voting in Iowa and possibly online voting in other states.

That prospect of a reversal, at least in the early nominating caucuses, stems from growing concerns in top party circles about protecting the “integrity of the process” in a post-2016 climate, said James Roosevelt III, co-chair of the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee.

“It is entirely possible,” said Roosevelt. “The committee is going to be looking to be convinced that it will work. I think the committee is subject to competing pressures. One is to honor Iowa’s commitment to participatory democracy. And the other is to a heightened sensitivity that did not exist four or certainly eight years ago to the integrity of the process.”
