Clinton’s statement follows several high-profile false rape accusations, such as one last year at the University of Virginia and one several years ago against the Duke University lacrosse team.
Clinton is following up on a comment she made in September:
“To every survivor of sexual assault…You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.” —Hillary

In similar news, Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Clinton’s husband Bill of raping her, said: “Shame on you” to Hillary in a recent radio appearance, condemning the former First Lady for running for president on a gender-based platform.
