Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the disgraced journalist at the center of the University of Virginia fake rape allegations, “had a steady stream of problem boyfriends” says her family according to the Daily Pennsylvanian.
A profile of Erdeley, then going by her maiden name of Rubin, ran in a past issue of the Daily Pennsylvanian where she was described as a hippy who tie-dyed her Underoos.
“Sabrina was always off beat, a hippie before her time,” her mother told the Daily Pennsylvanian.
“According to her little brother, they were all emotionally disturbed,” reported the student newspaper at the time in a possible parody issue.
One of them was very seriously depressed and wanted to join the army,” Sammy Rubin said. He shaved his legs; he was sadistic.”
Described by high school buddies as “free wheelin’ and free lovin'” other of Rubin’s eclectic beaux included really short guys and dudes with massive grimy afros.”
GotNews.com obtained a copy of the January 22, 1993 student newspaper from a source after offering a bounty for this information.
Erdely’s past relationships with men are the first indication of a motive for why she fabricated huge parts of the fake rape case involving fraudster Jackie Coakley.
Erdely did not return past requests for comment.
Note to David Weigel: Oh, and by the way, we have no idea if this issue is a parody or not. It’s probable that it is. I mean Roy G. Biv? Come on now.
But the fact that this was a joke shows us something.
