What in my statements did I say was untrue?

It is you that needs to talk to Jesus about lying.. not me.
Almost everything you said is a lie.
It's not her GoFundMe account, it's a GoFundMe account set up to pay for her security. Because right wing nut jobs have made death threats against her and her family. She told the truth, Trump mocked the victim of a sexual assault, you support that, because that's the kind of guy you are.

But the Innocence Project, which was founded in 1992, has demonstrated through DNA testing that there are numerous cases of men sent to jail because they were wrongly convicted of sexual assault.

The organization boasts of 362 DNA exonerees to date, people who spent years, and in many cases decades, behind bars because they were convicted of a crime - murder, rape, assault, etc. - they did not commit.



Moreover, the organization's efforts using DNA to clear innocent people have helped identify 158 real perpetrators, who were later "convicted of 150 additional violent crimes, including 80 sexual assaults," according to the Innocence Project.


In news reports of those cases in which men were wrongly convicted of sexual assault, including rape, the victim identified the accused. Indeed the Innocence Project claims, "Mistaken eyewitness identifications contributed to approximately 70% of the more than 350 wrongful convictions in the United States overturned by post-conviction DNA evidence."

To put that data into perspective, Newman consulted data on wrongful murder convictions. “It seems to be extremely rare for anyone to be wrongfully convicted as a result of a false accusation of rape,” she says. “I was only able to find 52 cases in 25 years where a conviction was later overturned after a wrongful conviction based on false rape allegations. In the same period, there were 790 cases where people were found to be wrongfully convicted of murder.” For what it’s worth, 790 divided by 52 is 15.2, meaning that by Newman’s data, you were 15 times likelier in that 25-year period to be wrongfully convicted of murder than of rape. And, let’s keep in mind, rape allegations resulting in convictions are already vanishingly rare: Newman cites a study that found that, of 216 assault complaints classified as false, only six led to arrest, and only two led to actual charges. (And even then, they were eventually deemed false.)

Yeah, that's nice. Does not address my post in the slightest. In fact it is just a c/p of the same thing you have been posting.
