Sanford Rubenstein, the plaintiff's lawyer accused of raping a top aid to Al Sharpton, won't face charges according to the Manhattan District Attorney's Office as reported by Jim Dolan for WABC.
It's so nice that Rubenstein now can put this ugly story to bed, and get on with his lifestyle. Last October the old geazer allegedly was denied entrance to reputed swingers club Checkmate at 227 East 56th Street in midtown Manhattan for some weekend fun as reported by the New York Post: "the manager told him there had been too much recent press about his sexual hi-jinks at local hot spots and he didn’t want that kind of exposure for his establishment, the source said."
Perhaps the most unsettling tidbit uncovered during the rape probe was a Viagra prescription in Al Sharpton's name at Rubenstein's apartment as reported by the Daily News:
A shocked Sharpton initially said he was unaware of a doc's note for the little blue pill that solves erectile dysfunction. "I don't know anything about that, no, I don't know anything about that," Sharpton said, after a speechless second. But he roared back a moment later, accusing the source who leaked the detail of trying to embarrass him with a smear campaign and saying he would demand an investigation.
It's really hard to imagine Sharpton getting any action -- in fact, I'm trying not to -- but as my grandmother once said there's a lid for every pot.
