National Organization of Women

The California chapter of the National Organization of Women has gotten involved, per Dr. Blaine’s urging apparently, in Mark Sanchez’s rape case. They sent a letter to USC protesting USC football players getting away with sexual assault, as if all those accusations were without question valid and real. The complete letter is here. I thought we had a judicial system for a reason.

USC responded with a reply letter. They’re clearly the voice of reason in this debate. Speaking of things that don’t “hold a lot of water,” the Mark Sanchez case which specifically prompted the reaction by NOW doesn’t seem to be standing on its own. I hope, despite his talent, that if he’s guilty of the crime then he suffers for it, but if these accusations are false that pressure from organizations like NOW don’t affect the outcome of the investigation surrounding him.
