A new Bill Cosby accuser has come forward with claims the comedian drugged and raped her on two occasions decades ago.
“It took me about 20 years to admit this to anyone,” accuser Joan Tarshis wrote late Sunday on a website called Hollywood Elsewhere. “But during those years as I grew into adulthood, I watched Cosby be praised by everyone from Presidents to Oprah to the Jello Corporation.”
“It all made me ill,” she added. “Knowing first-hand there was something unbalanced about him.”
Cosby has been besieged by accusations of multiple sexual assaults during his decades-long career that have resurfaced in the last couple of weeks. He has refused to comment about them publicly.
