The Rick Pitino Extortion Case Just Got Messy

As I'm sure you know, the Rick Pitino extortion case has been pretty weird. The woman involved in it, Karen Sypher, was indicted yesterday in Kentucky. The problem is, no one really knows what the case is actually about, and what info Sypher had that she was using to extort Pitino.

Well, we may have our answer now.

Below is a picture that originally appeared on the Courier-Journal newspaper web site. It was taken during the indictment yesterday and it features several protestors who are in the Sypher camp. The young gentleman there holding the sign about abortion is, gulp, one of Sypher's sons.


Interestingly, the Courier-Journal actually cut him out of the picture shortly thereafter. So the pic then looked like this.


Yep, something's definitely missing.

Now, I have no idea if Pitino forcing Sypher to have an abortion is what this is all about, but I'd say it seems pretty likely.

At the end of the day, this broad has one foot in quicksand and the other on a banana peel.  Rick Pitino can look her in the eyes and calmly state the best FU possible in this case:





 HAHAHAHAHAHA, leave Pitino's arse alone he's was recruiting and got some mom hole from a recruit probably.

Is anyone really surprised that Pitino is slimey?

Ty, she's 49.....possible but not likely that she would even need an abortion. I've thought that Pitino was too smart and calculated to be TOO slimey.....

Hahaha, no problem. As a former journalist, i can understand why they pulled that. Although luckily for us, someone put the pic up for a brief time.

It is her son, we just found that out. As for the media, I don't think it has anything to do with liberal media bias, what it has to do with legal issues. As a paper you're not supposed to present a side of a court case that you don't know to be true. No one knows if this is actually about an abortion yet. So, someone like Pitino could sue for defamation for that picture being in the paper, since it presents a side of the court case that the paper can't confirm.

Nice photoshop skills. You can still see the guy's hand  who was holding the abortion sign,and a rose he was holding. Busted. Like a bubble.
