Commissioner Kelly’s son Greg is accused of raping a woman in Lower Manhattan last year. Stop and frisk and anti-Muslim propaganda is hard to beat, but I think ol’ Greg—who is also a co-anchor of Good Day New York—might (allegedly!) have this one.
The woman told the police that she met the younger Mr. Kelly on the street and that the two went to South Street Seaport for drinks on Oct. 8. They then proceeded to her office at a Lower Manhattan law firm. The woman told the police that the rape occurred at the office. The two continued to have contact by phone and text message after the encounter.
According to the woman’s account, when her boyfriend later learned about the night, he became angry. He then approached the police commissioner at a public event and told him that the younger Mr. Kelly had sexually assaulted his girlfriend.
The commissioner, according to the woman’s account, told him to write a letter. It was unclear if the man did so.
Yuck. I can’t imagine how hard it has to be to come forward with something like that about the thug Commissioner’s kid. If (when) the accuser’s name gets out, she is going to spend the rest of her life being harassed by assholes.
In case you’re in the mood to do some further reading about why talking openly about rape is important, allow me to recommend Emily McCombs’s incredible, heartbreaking piece “Why I Talk About Rape”.
