Good article. I felt sorry for the girl to begin with, for many reasons. I feel the video of the crime should have never been put out there for all the world to see. I can only imagine how embarassed and paranoid that has made the victim. To me, that victimized her over and over again. Sexual assult is not entertainment and that's the way it was being treated. We all know what sexual assult is, we didn't have to see it to understand a crime was committed. I only hope there is some way this girl can go on and have a reasonable peaceful life.

Hmmm seems like she had a week to alert her friends that the investigation was under way and to delete the incriminating pics/vids/files. Why would she wait so long to recuse herself? She had big conflicts of interest from day 1. I hope that the outside bloggers and Anonymous dig more into her records - I'll be they find preferential treatment toward any Big Reg affiliated citizens.
