No big surprise. Her death (a gunshot wound to the head) is substantiated by an article in Pravda. To me, that pretty much solidifies her claims.
Otherwise, she would've just been blown off for a fraud.
Here's the Pravda article:
Dead Woman Who Accused Bush of Rape
by John Ashtead, Pravda [RU]
November 12th, 2003
Margie Schoedinger dies as a result of a gunshot wound to the head
Margie Schoedinger, the woman who allegedly filed a lawsuit against George W. Bush in December 2002, claiming that she had been raped, has died of a
gunshot wound to the head, registered officially as "suicide".
The allegations were serious: the law suit apparently filed against George W. Bush in the County Civil Court in Fort Bend County, Texas, on 2nd
December 2002, claimed that George Bush, the former Governor or Texas and current President of the United States of America, had committed
"individual sex crimes" against her and her husband.
Margie Schoedinger further stated that after the claim, she had been harassed, that her bank account had been interfered with, that she had been
threatened and beaten. She claimed 1 million USD in actual damages plus 49 million USD in punitive damages and emotional stress caused by the alleged
Court documents filed on December 4th 2002 mention Bush, giving him 20 days to respond or appear in a court in Fort Bend. These papers were initialed
by Fort Bend County Deputy Clerk, Becky Kasper. However, due to the ambiguous nature of the claims, which have never been substantiated, it is unclear
whether the President of the USA was served with the suit.
Whatever the case, Margie Schoedinger is dead. At 38 years of age, she died on Monday 22nd September 2003. The Harris Country Examiner's Office
states "gunshot wound to the head" and "suicide".
