Discussions about the James Randi Educational Foundation and its Million Dollar Challenge.

Not ignoring you Jayhawker, there are a few sources around about Randi's adventures with the lads and I do believe there is a thread on this forum that briefly goes into the details. Skeptics work really hard at playing it down and screaming that "he was never found guilty" in that the cop that arrested him conveniently died a few days prior to the trial itself. There are other situations as well, not all of it sexual but most of it questionable.
You may want to speak with the publisher of FATE Magazine, I'm certain he would be willing to point you to a few sources that are current.

Yes, at one time there was a supposed transcript of this posted on this forum. It was deleted as the quality of the source and information could not be verified at the time.

I had no idea someone who looks so much like Santa Claus could be so evil. Although, I was kind of hoping for something related to the challenge...

Craig: if Randi has abused children I will be among the first to skewer him. And you may indeed be right about him. But I'm not comfortable with these vague statments you make about some pretty darn serious charges.
Also: what do you mean that Canada revoked his citizenship? That sounds absurd. Canada allows dual citizenship. I couldn't find anything on that using google. Statements like that next to serious accusations make me question all of it!

After a whopping 10 minutes of searching, I've found little more than Riley G being the guy behind the accusations. I see no other evidence, other than he and possibly other anti-Randi propoganda, that he was a pedophile. Remember, child molestation is one crime that the police like to bust and if there was any truth to the accusations, there would have been an investigation. Unless someone can post something solid other than "he said she said" sh!t, I consider it a closed issue.

I've heard the tapes (winston has them somewhere on his other site). To me, it seems clear that Randi knew that they were being recorded, that he seemed to be trying to get these apparently male prostitutes to incriminate themselves. The tap is clearly on his phone - which if it was surreptitiously put there by police you'd think they'd have gone and actually arrested him.
I don't think Randi's an angel here, but the kids while perhaps under 18 were not children either.

IIRC as PW said Byrd "won" his case but was awarded $0 in damages. That means that Randi had to pay nothing. Would have been strange for Randi to settle out of court AFTER he'd received a judgment so favourable to him!
