A day after we learned that Greg Kelly, co-host of Fox 5's Good Day New York and the son of New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, had been accused of rape, new details are emerging about the alleged attack and its aftermath. Yesterday, we found out that Kelly met the his accuser on the street, and, after going out drinking, the pair ended up in her office at a downtown law firm where she says the incident occurred. Today we learned that the woman told police that she was "virtually passed out" when Kelly allegedly assaulted her. She also claims she became pregnant as a result of the rape and chose to end the pregnancy.
The woman, who's in her late 20s, says she called Kelly at some point after the attack to ask, "What did you do to me?" A friend of hers says she has been "an emotional cripple" since the alleged assault. The friend also said the woman's boyfriend picked her up after the attack occurred and described her as distraught.
For his part, Greg Kelly's attorneys have said he "strenuously denies any wrongdoing," and they claim to have texts that Kelly and the woman exchanged which they say will "undermine suggestions the encounter was anything but consensual." Kelly did not appear on this morning's broadcast of Good Day New York. Fox 5 said that Kelly "requested some time off." The district attorney's office is still investigating the matter, and Kelly has not yet been charged with any crime.
In an incredibly weird coincidence, Cy Vance, the District Attorney who is in charge of investigating the accusations against Kelly, appeared on Good Day New York on Monday, the day before Kelly's accuser came forward. In the interview, the conversation turned to the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case (skip to the 4:21 mark to hear it), and here's part what Kelly asked Vance:
Ms. Diallo, was she treated fairly by your office? Newsweek had a story and it seemed like she was undergoing a great deal of questioning, some have raised a concern that perhaps if she were a more prominent citizen, member of the community, she would not have been subjected to that kind of interrogation.
Vance responded by saying, "I believe that's a misimpression and incorrect assessment of the case. I think we look at every case carefully." What incredibly bizarre timing, and now Kelly will find out first-hand how the DA's office handles its cases.
