  • The Stripper Scandal won't go away

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Former University of Louisville board of trustees chairman J. David Grissom said under oath last month that former U of L President James Ramsey told him that a university trustee was the “cash source” for payments to strippers who danced for and had sex with Louisville basketball players and recruits in a campus dorm.

    Grissom’s assertion in the Katina Powell sex scandal – which Ramsey’s lawyer unequivocally denies – came during a July 26 deposition in the financial fraud lawsuit U of L and its nonprofit foundation are prosecuting against Ramsey and a handful of former top aides.

    “He (Ramsey) told me that one of his board members was the cash source for paying off the strippers in the stripper incident,” Grissom said according to a video of the deposition obtained by WDRB News.

    Grissom, who is still a university trustee, refused three times during the deposition to provide the name of the board member who allegedly funded the strippers before he finally said that, in fact, Ramsey did not identify the trustee.

    Grissom added that he never asked Ramsey which trustee was alleged to have made the payments. The conversation took place in June 2016, “right in the midst when all that investigation (into the Powell matter) was going on,” Grissom said.

    Ramsey’s lawyer Steve Pence said Monday that Grissom’s story is “ridiculous” and merely an attempt to “justify (Grissom’s) behavior” in pursuing the baseless lawsuit against Ramsey.
    “I can give you 100% assurance that that (information about the board member) did not come from Dr. Ramsey,” Pence told WDRB News.

    In 2017, the NCAA’s infractions committee ordered U of L to vacate its 2013 national championship and other records after finding former director of basketball operations Andre McGee guilty of major violations related to a sex-and-recruiting scandal. The scandal emerged in 2015, when self-described escort Katina Powell published a tell-all book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules.”

    Powell alleged that, working with McGee, she helped arrange 22 parties providing strippers and prostitutes for U of L men’s basketball players and recruits. She claimed that McGee paid her more than $10,000 over four years to provide escorts for recruits and players. McGee denied the allegations.

    UL may still be in hot water.
    And he'd go out on the weekend and he played like Clarence White,
    if Clarence had had a real job and picked the guitar when there was time.

    ^^^^^They are ABSOLUTELY still in hot water. Not only with the BS that Ramsey, and others, pulled with the UL Foundation, but also the impending judgement by the NCAA regarding Bowen and other offenses committed WHILE THEY WERE STILL ON PROBATION. UL fans are convinced, certain that they are going to have a great year in BB this year. Pre-season, they're rated in the top ten. So what?? They are soon to get totally ripped by the NCAA, again, and there's no telling what's gonna happen. They've already vacated the 2013 National Championship plus many, many wins during that time. What's left??

      For a (allegedly) bright guy, Grissom is dumb as a post.

        It's amazing how much "under oath" does to some folks.

            Problem for Grissom is that he either lied to the NCAA committee or he's lying now.

              I'm sure the defense will jump all over it. One story when paying out, a different when trying to collect.
              dunno if this makes Louisville MORE liable....a coach in charge of recruiting paid the money....so the University paid.
              Mr.Ramsey certainly was.a piece of work that continues to give.
