PAY-UP TIME FOR BRAWLEY
Twenty-five years after accusing an innocent man of rape, Tawana Brawley is finally paying for her lies.
Last week, 10 checks totaling $3,764.61 were delivered to ex-prosecutor Steven Pagones — the first payments Brawley has made since a court determined in 1998 that she defamed him with her vicious hoax.
A Virginia court this year ordered the money garnisheed from six months of Brawley’s wages as a nurse there.
She still owes Pagones $431,000 in damages. And she remains defiantly unapologetic….
Brawley’s advisers in the infamous race-baiting case — the Rev. Al Sharpton, and attorneys C. Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox — have already paid, or are paying, their defamation debt. But Brawley, 41, had eluded punishment.
She’s now forced to pay Pagones $627 each month, possibly for the rest of her life…
“I don’t want to talk to anyone about that,” Brawley growled after a Post reporter confronted her about her sordid past in December. [More Al Sharpton golden oldies here]
That’s Tawana’s way of saying I lied, some crazy-ass cracker paid, and I’ve moved on.
There’s just something about a strong black woman with a preposition on the front of her first name, isn’t there?
“Every week, she’ll think of me,” Pagones told The Post. “And every week, she can think about how she has a way out — she can simply tell the truth.”
But in Sharpton-Brawley World, trumped-up scandal means never having to say you’re sorry.
Neither Rev. Al nor Tawana Brawley has apologized for destroying the life of Steven Pagones whom they falsely accused of abducting, assaulting, raping and sodomizing the then teenager.
Of course, this was all back before Rev. Al turned himself over to Jenny Craig, threw away the cheap gold-plated medallion and washed out the James Brown hair processing products.
So while Steven Pagones did not ‘make’ Tawana Brawley on that cold November New York night in 1987, Tawana sure as hell made Al Sharpton.
