The lyrics of Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers’ song “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” have come to mind when I consider the Dershowitz Affair. I find myself humming: “Tell me why, why, why, why, oh why, why is Virginia Roberts lying.”
Dershowitz on his Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey type circuit of America protesting his innocence and proclaiming that Virginia Roberts is lying has resulted in the following comments from people. “The man dost protest too much.” Another person wondered “Why the big publicity campaign.” A third asked “what’s with this line up of attorneys and people who have sprung up to defend him if he’s so innocent?”
We do know though that Alan wasn’t particularly choosy in who he associated with as we see from his long-term association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. (The logs from Epstein’s plane show Dershowitz on a flight with Epstein from Bedford, Mass., to Teterboro in October 1998, and a flight from Teterboro to Martha’s Vineyard in 1999. In a 2003 article he told Vanity Fair: “I’m on my 20th book…. The only person outside of my immediate family that I send drafts to is Jeffrey.”) That brings to mind the old saying “birds of a feather flock together” along with an offtake of that: “You can tell a man by the company he keeps.”
The thing I can’t figure out is why out of all the men this young woman Virginia Roberts serviced beginning at age 15 she put the finger on two of them that I know about. One, Prince Andrew, who even with the support of all the queen’s horses and all the queen’s men won’t be able to put Randy Andy together again. He seems to be pretty cooked with Virginia’s diary about him along with pictures showing him with his arm around her naked waist.
So what is the reason that out of the blue she decided to pick on Alan? I’m not sure Alan has given us an adequate explanation of this. All he has done is use the forums which seem to be available to him and not to many others to give his blanket denials and present his side of the story which consists of nothing more than categorically denying her allegations and calling her a liar. I’d like to hear him give a reason why of all the people she could have named she dimed him out.
She had to have known of his reputation for going after people. Oh, I know, that’s what attorneys tell you they have to do when their client is accused of a crime. They have to go after the victims and tear them down in any way they can with their well-paid investigators. Virginia would have known this. She’d also have known that few would fly to her defense for fear of alienating Alan who might go after anyone who supported her as he did when he said he was going to go after her lawyers and seek their disbarment and as he’s doing suggesting she is an unfit mother.
So why is it she’s done this and seen her name trashed by him. She said in an affidavit that she saw Alan on television calling her a “liar.” She wrote: “He is lying by denying he had sex with me. That man is the same man who I had sex with at least six times.”
Dershowitz has said: “It’s a completely, totally fabricated, made-up story. I have never had sex with an underage woman. They made up this story out of whole cloth. I’m an innocent victim of an extortion conspiracy.”
But from what I have read, Virginia is not seeking to extort anything from Alan. She’s not after any money from him. We know Alan has thrown the word ‘extortion’ around so much that it is meaningless when coming from his mouth. So if it is not that, what is the reason she decided to name Alan as one of her sex partners when she was a girl.
Motive, Alan, motive! You got to point to a motive as to why Virginia lied about you as you say she is doing. As Frankie Lymon would say: “Tell us Why!”
