John-Paul Nungesser, Accused of Rape and Harassed by "Mattress Project," Sues Columbia For Enabling the Harassment

This man has been defamed and harassed for years-- all with the enabling of Columbia University, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

Paul Nungesser was found "not responsible" for sexually assaulting another student at Columbia University. The student who accused him, Emma Sulkowicz, has since began carrying a mattress around the university as part of an art project to protest a finding she claims was unfair.

Sulkowicz’s activism earned her an invitation to President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night from Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. When Nungesser heard of the invitation, he blasted the senator for rewarding Sulkowicz’s attacks against him.

"I am shocked to learn that Sen. Gillibrand is actively supporting Ms. Sulkowicz's defamation campaign against me by providing her with a public forum in which to broadcast her grave allegation," Nungesser told New York Magazine on Tuesday. "By doing so, Sen. Gillibrand is participating in a harassment campaign against someone, who, for good reason, has been found innocent by all investigating bodies."

Sulkowicz was permitted by Columbia to carry around a mattress to further defame Nungesser, and even make her carrying around of that mattress her senior art project -- for college credit.

Note that Nungesser has been cleared multiple times of the claims Emma Sulkowicz has made against him -- and the charges that Sulkowicz induced two other women to file against him, in a sort of warped solidarity.

And Sulkowicz also tried to bring charges with the NYPD -- who also refused to prosecute.

But throughout this, Sulkowicz has spoken to the media -- violating Columbia's confidentiality rules -- and made it easy to determine who she was accusing.

However, Nungesser himself has not spoken to the media much, until recently.

He was bound by confidentiality, whereas Sulkowicz paraded around that mattress, claiming he'd raped her.

Well, now he's filed a lawsuit which contains all the details confidentiality rules previously blockaded him from releasing.

Robby Soave correctly calls the texts published in the lawsuit what they are -- damning.

I strongly encourage everyone to read the lawsuit. It is filled with damning claims. And believe me, it is not slow reading.

Assuming these texts are real -- and I can't see them likely being fake, as they'll be subject to scrutiny by the courts, and more than likely have been looked at by Colubia and the police -- then Columbia better put aside money for a Rolling Stone-level settlement.

I just don't see how a "rape victim" could possibly text her "rapist" things like "I love youyouyou" after the "rape."

But we'll probably be told that rape victims do this all the time, just like we were told in the case of Jackie that rape victims always changed their stories and appeared deceptive and evasive.
