What Mrs. Turner Didn’t Say

June 30, 2016



I’ve been thinking about mothers and sons. “I don’t think I have been able to take a deep breath since this happened,” Carleen Turner wrote in her letter to the court after her 20-year-old son, Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. “My first thought upon waking every morning is, […]

Weiner was communicating privately on Twitter with a 17-year-old Delaware girl. Though leaked messages from Weiner’s exchange […]
