When Kathy Shelton was 12 years old, she was raped by Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old man who served less than a year in prison after Hillary Clinton got him off on a legal technicality.
In 1975, Clinton was Taylor's court-appointed lawyer and has since laughed about getting him off and even intimated that she thought he was guilty, which can be heard in audio recordings obtained andpublished by The Washington Free Beacon.
'It was a fascinating case, it was a very interesting case,' Clinton says in the recording. 'This guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old. Course he claimed that he didn't, and all this stuff' . . . 'I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,' she added with a laugh. Clinton can also be heard laughing at several points when discussing the crime lab's accidental destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.
Now, Shelton has taken to Twitter to make Clinton face her actions.
I may be Hillary Clinton's 1st female victim. She ruined my life; defended my rapist & blamed me. I was 12 yrs old. Then she laughed at me.
When Clinton was representing Taylor, she ordered that Shelton undergo a 12-hour-long psychiatric evaluation to determine if she was "mentally unstable," and reportedly said the child rape victim had a tendency to "seek out older men," according to The Daily Mail.
Just hours before the presidential debate on Sunday, Shelton joined Donald Trump and three other women to talk about how Hillary Clinton minimized their claims of sexual assault in a panel discussion with members of the press.
"Hillary put me through something you would never put a 12-year-old through," she said.
