One last post on Bristol Palin and the rape charge. Whatever our confusion about what was being implied, Levi Johnston is pretty clear and unhappy:
Bristol Palin is not telling the truth when she claims in a new book that her virginity was "stolen'' by boyfriend Levi Johnston, Johnston's attorney said Thursday.In the just released book, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far,'' Palin -- the daughter of former Gov. Sarah Palin -- claims she drank so many wine coolers on the night in question that she has no recollection of events, and that she woke the next morning with "something obviously askew'' only to be told by a girlfriend that "you definitely had sex with Levi."Johnston attorney Rex Butler disagreed with the part of the story that has Bristol so drunk she didn't know what was happening. "That's obviously not true,'' he said...Butler, one of Alaska's better known criminal attorneys, admitted that if true the story sounds a lot like rape, but he said the story isn't true. And he seemed a little perplexed that Bristol, who had a child with Johnston, would be telling it.
"Suddenly, I wondered why it was called 'losing your virginity,'" Bristol writes. "Because it felt more like it had been stolen."
