Bill Cosby has finally spoken out.

Washington Times – According to a 2005 deposition made public Monday, comedian Bill Cosby has admitted under oath to drugging multiple women in order to coerce them into sex.

The deposition, which had been part of a sex-abuse lawsuit by Andrea Costand that was settled for an undisclosed amount of money and put under seal the next year, was made public Monday as a result of a lawsuit by the Associated Press.

More than two dozen women over the last couple of years have made similar claims, that Mr. Cosby coerced them into sexual intercourse, often by drugging them.

Besides Ms. Costand, one other woman whom the AP did not identify, testified in the case that she had taken quaaludes from Mr. Cosby.

For his part, Mr. Cosby admitted in his 2005 deposition to acquiring quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to go to bed with, both the woman who was suing him and unspecified “other people.”
