“Forget these women,” she said. “What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.”

I always thought these allegations just sounded a little outlandish and for the right price, you can get anyone to say anything.

Bill Cosby was in the running to buy NBC. Tarnishing his legacy also messes with Bill Cosby’s money. There is no telling who Bill Cosby pissed off to have this old scandal be big news in 2014.
