Tawana Brawley Served With Court Order to Pay Man She Accused of Rape 25 Years Ago

The Tawana Brawley rape case was all a hoax. However, the lie did propel Rev. Al Sharpton’s career. He is now a television host with MSNBC.

Tawana Brawley, the woman who falsely accused six white men, including police officers, of having raped her, was served with a court order to settle a hefty defamation suit against her.
The New York Post reported:

Infamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her.

“For at least 25 years, she has been living a major lie,” said former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones, who was falsely accused of raping Brawley in 1987 and finally tracked her down, thanks to The Post.

“To me, this has always been about responsibility and accountability,’’ added the former ADA, who won the $190,000 defamation lawsuit against Brawley, 40, now a nurse in Virginia, more than a decade ago.

At 9 percent interest, that debt, which Brawley never attempted to pay off, now totals $431,492, according to the wage-garnishment papers filed in Virginia’s Surry County Court.

Brawley — whose unbelievable lies made the Rev. Al Sharpton a household name as he bombastically championed her cause — had changed her name and moved down South in the years since she was exposed.
