Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was one of nine defendants named in a Washoe County lawsuit filed by Andrea McNulty. Washoe County includes Reno, Nevada, so you can figure that one out. But I appreciate McNulty’s consideration of the Nevada taxpayer buy suing all of these people in bulk [emphasis added].
“This weekend Andrea McNulty served Ben Roethlisberger with a civil complaint accusing him of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Ben has never sexually assaulted anyone; especially Andrea McNulty. The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct. If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated,” Cornwell said. via.
Mr. Roethlisberger never sexual assaulted anyone, but we’re damn sure he didn’t touch that ugly skank! [/pays ten cents to Kogod.] Yeah, you’ll forgive me if I don’t exactly take Roethlisberger’s word for it, though I think he’s situated well enough to not have to skimp on trips out west by going to Reno. Reno’s like the Wal-Mart of gambling and whores. But at least you head out in your sweatpants. There’s nothing better than giving the twins a little room to roam.
UPDATE: So…there’s this…
Sources connected with the case tell us a former co-worker of McNulty’s at Harrah’s came forward with this incredible story — that around the time McNulty hooked up with Roethlisberger, she was allegedly involved with a married man. The man’s wife, we’re told, created an email account, posing as a U.S. soldier in Iraq. The wife began corresponding with McNulty to gain information. We’re told the former co-worker has said McNulty fell in love with the fictitious soldier and began telling people she was engaged to him. When the wife stopped the correspondence, McNulty then began telling people the soldier was killed in action.
We’re told McNulty told at least one co-worker she began seeing a psychiatrist because of the phantom soldier. via.
Now I’m beginning to wonder who the other eight people on that list might be. I’m laying odds for “Santa Claus” and “Mr. E. Bunny” at 3-1. Also, it’s 10:53 AM ET here and ESPN still hasn’t picked up the story. Curious.
