She Lied!… Broward County Sheriff Accused of Having Affair With 17-Year-Old Girl – Who Later Admits She Made It Up
In a YouTube video uploaded in 2012, an unidentified woman accused Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel of having an affair with her and forcing her to get an abortion when she was 17 years old.
** Update: the video has been confirmed to be a hoax. The woman was hired by an unknown person to create the video — once again proving that maybe we shouldn’t just “believe women” after all.
The video was uncovered by Gabe Hoffman, producer of An Open Secret, a documentary on pedophilia in Hollywood.
YouTube video from 2012, girl accuses Broward Sherriff Scott Israel of having an affair with her, abortion at age 17. If the accusation was a lie, shouldn't Israel have sued, or at least had lawyers threaten her to take the video down? What do you think? https://t.co/gCbFCeSBRA

In a series of three videos uploaded to a channel called “Barry Israel,” the unidentified woman claims to have been in a six month long relationship with Israel. In the videos, she addresses Israel directly — seeming scorned and angry.
“Hi Scott, it’s me again. You know that at 17, because of you, I had to have an abortion. Now I’m finding out that you have three kids — and a kid from another marriage, and a wife of 20 years and you’re happily married. Are you serious?” the woman asks.
The description for the video reads:
“You know about the illegitimate child of Broward County Sheriff’s candidate Scott Israel. The happily married father of triplets, also had a girlfriend who had an abortion. Scott’s family and friends know nothing about this ‘friend’ he kept on the side for six-months.
Integrity? That’s Scott Israel. Illegitimate children? That’s Scott Israel. A much younger girlfriend on the side? That’s Scott Israel. A former girlfriend who had to have an abortion? That’s Scott Israel.
When voting on November 6th, please vote Scott Israel for Broward County Sheriff.

The video was unearthed as Sheriff Israel has began using his position to lobby for Democratic policies in the wake of last week’s deadly school shooting.
Israel’s wife Susan made her own video responding to the allegations however, and accused her husband’s opponent of hiring an actress to make the allegations.
