Jose Canseco Cleared in Rape Charges

In a recent telephone interview, 48-year-old Canseco said he was the victim in this case and wanted to sue his female accuser.

“She alleged I drugged her and raped her. It was an outright lie,” he said. “I proved it by taking two lie detector tests. I am the victim here.”

After posting his accuser’s information on social media late last month, Canseco received a lot of backlash from his followers. Some of the information was later removed.

Still, Canseco reportedly told the Associated Press that he doesn’t regret anything he wrote on Twitter about the woman. “If you have nothing to hide, why hide it?” he said.

For the curious, The Atlantic Wire caught screen grabs of Canseco’s social media diarrhea after it took place.
