Deja vu? William Kennedy Smith accused of rape...

13 years ago, William Kennedy Smith was found not guilty of rape in a Florida trial that, among other things, helped to create CourtTV.

Kennedy Smith, nephew of US Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA), is in the hotseat again, this time, accused of raping his personal assistant.

He forced my head into his lap and wouldn't let me sit up," says Audra Soulias.

This Chicago woman is talking about her former boss, William Kennedy Smith.

"I was gasping for air. It was like I was being held under water," she said.

"I continued to cry. I continued to plead," said Soulias.

The same William Kennedy Smith who is now a doctor in charge of a world renown non-profit group headquartered in Chicago that helps landmine victims.

"He dragged me into his house, dragged me to his upstairs bedroom, and he raped me," she said.

Soulias was Smith's office assistant. She claims smith showed up at a small office party for her 23rd birthday.

It was there where she says smith was buying drinks for everyone, and said he would make sure she got home safely.

Instead she says he took her to his Lakeview house and allegedly dragged her into his bedroom.

"He pushed my shirt over my waist, pulled my tights down and forced his hand inside me."

Paul Ciolino, a private investigator working with Soulias' legal team says he checked out her story, gave her a lie detector test and she passed.

Soulias was interviewed by WBBM-TV/DT reporter Dave Savini in Chicago yesterday.

Don't forget the best part: She and Kennedy Smith started a consensual sexual relationship after the alleged attack took place.

According to Katie Couric this morning, anyway.

Gold digger or rape victim: you decide.


There is a big difference between William Calley and John Kerry. William Calley is a proven war criminal. For John Kerry we only have his word as an officer and a gentleman.

This is unbelievable. I worked with Smith. He was very aloof and professional/ And I was raped once and I never would of dated the rapist after that. The Kennedys have been through enough.
