politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Do we need a Megan Williams law?

Woman in W.Va. torture case now says she lied
October 22, 2009 by TOM BREEN

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A black woman whose racially charged allegations of horrific abuse helped put several people in prison now says she lied when she alleged she was kidnapped, sexually assaulted and tortured in a ramshackle West Virginia trailer.

West Virginia authorities said in 2007 that Megan Williams, now of Columbus, Ohio, had been stabbed, beaten with sticks, sexually assaulted, doused with hot water, forced to eat animal feces and taunted with racial slurs by seven white men and women. She later said that hot wax was poured on her and that two of her captors had forced to drink their urine.

An unsigned statement released Wednesday by the office of her Columbus lawyer, Byron L. Potts, said simply, “Megan Williams is now recanting her story.” Williams was scheduled to attend a news conference Wednesday in Columbus along with Potts.

<i>Just like the the bogus Duke Lacrosse rape case, rape and race made the story; the facts were irrelevant.</i>
