Camille Cosby, Bill Cosby's wife of 54 years, recently released a statement calling for a criminal investigation of the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, who prosecuted her husband's sexual assault case. Steele campaigned for the office with the promise that he would do so.
Camille wrote: “I am publicly asking for a criminal investigation of that district attorney and his cohorts. This is a homogeneous group of exploitative and corrupt people, whose primary purpose is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosby’s life. If they can do this to Mr. Cosby, they can do so to anyone.”
She went on: “In the case of Bill Cosby, unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs, who publicly and privately coerced cancellations of Bill Cosby’s scheduled performances; syndications of ‘The Cosby Show’; rescissions of honorary degrees and a vindictive attempt to close an exhibition of our collection of African American art in the Smithsonian Museum of African Art."
She also blamed the media for "frenzied, relentless demonization of [Cosby] and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations" and followed in the footsteps of a Cosby spokesperson who last week compared his treatment during the trial to the lynching of Emmett Till (Cosby was placed under house arrest and ordered to wear a GPS ankle monitor).
