Dylan Farrow's sex assault claims against Woody Allen

Woody Allen's estranged adopted daughter Dylan Farrow is publicly describing sex abuse allegations against him. The accusations first surfaced nearly 22 years ago. In an open letter she also calls out several actors and condemns them for working with Allen. Randi Kaye has the latest.

    Mia Farrow has always had some kind of huge, mammoth sexual 'problem' – some kind of distorted, twisted, demented issue about sex.

    Way back when the Beatles visited Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India (Mia Farrow was also there at that time), Mia Farrow made a grand-standing proclamation that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had tried to molest or seduce her. I did not believe it then and I don't believe her or her daughter now. Mia is 'sick' – suffers from some kind of mental illness when it comes to the subject, the issue of sex.

    George Harrison never believed her Maharishi claims. No one should. She has a serious mental health illness and she spread it to her kids. She has poisoned an awful lot of people with her illness – including her whole family. It's been a long malicious "scorched earth" Mia Farrow rampage that's hurt a lot of innocent people – including her own children, Woody and a respected, beloved spiritual leader.

    What is the point of the public jumping on this case. There will never be any resolution at the end of all of this. He did it, he didn't do it. It makes no difference what I believe or what anyone else believes. It is not going to be solved.

    On ABC's "The View" today, Barbara Walters went against her panel of women in defense of Woody Allen. She said she can vouch for Woody Allen and the wonderful husband and father he is now. Can anyone really vouch for someone else as a father or husband if it's not their own. Has she lived with them? Does she have cameras in his house that witness what happens behind closed doors? I loved how Sherri Shepherd, another co-host, pointed out that Barbara's words were quite familiar. They are the same words we always hear on the news right after a tragedy, whether it's a school shooting, domestic violence act, a case similar to Sandusky, and so on. The neighbors and friends who are interviewed always say, "He or she was the nicest person. I would never think they were capable of doing this." Other co-host, Jenny McCarthy pointed out that the girl has nothing to gain by coming forward. I agree. Barbara pointed out, though, that no charges were ever brought against Mr. Allen. What she didn't point out is that it was also during another day and age where it was harder to get those type of charges brought to light. Also, she never mentioned the statistics for children who recall sexual abuse. There is only a 4 percent chance that the child is lying. Children have no reason to make something like that up. This girl has had to live with the horror and had to deal with it in her own time. She should't have to apologize that she has come forward during award season. Woody Allen doesn't like receiving awards anyways. Maybe there's more to his secrecy and hermit like behavior than meets the eye. Why does Barbara Walters treat Mr. Allen like the victim? Victims will never feel safe coming forward if people continue to protect the abusers in our society based on their economic and social status.
