KEVIN SPACEY FACES SEXUAL ASSAULT LAWSUIT
NEW YORK (AP) – Allegations of sexual misconduct cost Kevin Spacey his acting career. Now, there’s a chance some of those same allegations may cost him financially. Two men have filed a lawsuit against the disgraced “House of Cards” star, alleging that Spacey sexually assaulted them. One of the accusers is Anthony Rapp, whose public allegations against Spacey in 2017 marked the start of the actor’s downfall. Both men say the sexual assaults they accuse him of occurred in the 1980’s – when they were teenagers. An email seeking comment was sent to Spacey’s attorney, but there was no immediate response.

Those are set for early next year, too.
“JOE EXOTIC” SEEKS PARDON
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The man best known as “Joe Exotic” is looking to get out of prison – by means of a pardon. The former Oklahoma zookeeper featured in the Netflix documentary “Tiger King” is serving 22 years behind bars in a murder-for-hire plot and violating federal wildlife laws. And now, he is asking the Department of Justice to wipe out his convictions. His attorneys say Joe Exotic is innocent and was “railroaded and betrayed” by others. If the 257-page application for a pardon is denied, his sentence will run until 2037. His attorneys say with his compromised health, Joe Exotic is likely to die behind bars.
