Why Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations are resurfacing now

On Friday night, Bill Cosby received a standing ovation in Florida, where he's performing as part of his comedy tour.

The ovation comes as two more Bill Cosby accusers speak out. At least a dozen women have broken their silence.

Bill Cosby facing litany of allegations

There were reports of alleged sexual assault back in 2005, but it wasn't until another comedian recently called out Cosby that women started coming forward with strikingly similar stories.

In a statement released late Friday night, Cosby's attorney, Martin Singer, says

The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity.

These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous, and it is completely illogical that so many people would have said nothing, done nothing, and made no reports to law enforcement or asserted civil claims if they thought they had been assaulted over a span of so many years.
It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop.
