President Says No Mechanism to Revoke Cosby's Medal of Freedom

President Barack Obama on Wednesday rejected the idea of revoking Bill Cosby's Presidential Medal of Freedom because of sexual misconduct allegations. Obama said "There's no precedent for revoking a medal." But Obama left no question about his thinking on the larger issue of drugs, consent and rape. Court documents obtained by The Associated Press have revealed that Cosby acknowledged under oath in 2005 that he obtained Quaaludes to give to women with whom he wanted to have sex. Angela Rose, executive director of Promoting Awareness Victim Empowerment, said there are plenty of ways for the president to take a more emphatic stand.
