Do Tapes Back Cosby Accuser's Claim?

This is a partial transcript from "On the Record," February 7, 2005, that has been edited for clarity.


Bill Cosby's accuser claims she's got the tapes to back up her bombshell allegations. Joining us is reporter Nicole Egan, who wrote the story for The Philadelphia Daily News.

Nicole, what is this involving tapes?

NICOLE WEISENSEE EGAN, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS: Well, what I reported was that the alleged victim in Canada recorded some conversations that occurred with Bill Cosby after she filed her report with the Canadian police in January and that Mr. Cosby initiated them and that they support her allegations that he drugged and groped her at his Cheltenham township home last January.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, take us back. How is it, I mean, at least according to her, that she was in any sort of situation in which she claims that Bill Cosby groped her?

EGAN: Well, according to the police report she filed, they went out to dinner in Philadelphia with some friends last January and that Mr. Cosby invited her back to his Elkins Park mansion. When they got there, she said she was stressed and not feeling well and that he offered her some pills and that when she took them, she started feeling dizzy. And she basically — from what I understand, according to her attorneys — became immobilized and couldn't move, and that he, at one point, was touching her breasts and that he had her touch his groin and that when she woke up around 4 a.m., her bra was undone and her clothes were in disarray. And at that point, she got up and went home. She drove herself home. CLICK FOR MORE
