One of the Cabinet sent this on… I vetted it, and found that it IS what’s “out there”:
It’s a real tits-up… one can’t confirm the veracity of it, but it IS what’s under discussion, and Lyonyo’s obsessive secrecy only makes it worse. However, the picture’s becoming clearer with each revelation (although the picture’s far from conclusive, yet). It’s obvious that the First Families and Holy Synod moved hastily. That militates for the truth of the allegation that new details surfaced in the rape case. The evident slipshod execution of the removal proves that it was a panicked reaction of apparatchiki afraid of getting caught in the back-blast of a legal débâcle. Therefore, the rumblings from konvertsy that the accusations are bogus are themselves false. I’ll say this, any jerk who thinks that the Holy Synod’s lying should take them to court. False accusation and libel are actionable… if one has the goods. I believe that they don’t have any evidence of such, and that you won’t see them in court, as they’re nothing but loudmouthed cry-babies.
The Synod may have lied and covered up in the past, but I believe that they’re telling the God’s honest truth this time… their very slipshod actions prove it, oddly enough. A lie would be better-prepared and executed more smoothly. That’s the way of it in the real world…
