Bill Cosby Hires Smear Soldiers

While the Cos has been getting laughs since 1962 he's also allegedly been date-raping since the 60s too. At least if you believe the two dozen plus ladies that claim he 'did it.'

Two dozen? Well Slate says there are twenty-seven to be exact. Which begs the question: how many alleged rapes does it take before the smoking gun turns out to have Bill's fingerprints on it?

Cosby and his wife says he didn't do it.  And the icon is allegedly paying a cadre of private-dicks six-figures to dig up dirt on his accusers now.

Is it possible to damn the guy based on the sheer number of rape accusers?  Or is it still required that at least one charge, indictment, arrest, conviction and/or sentence happen first?  Anyone?
