We were tipped off this morning that the alleged victim in the Jameis Winston sexual assault case is, or was, a member of Delta Zeta at Florida State University. Our tipster also informed us that members of DZ were facing egregious harassment from locals, obviously FSU football fans, who are none too pleased that their Heisman front running quarterback finds himself on the wrong side of national headlines, and in the midst of a national title run no less. Compulsive and irrational blame needs a home, and proverbial pitchforks are out.
From our tipster:
This is a little sketchy so you guys might have to do some leg work on your end, but the DZ house at FSU is apparently receiving bomb threats because Jameis Winston’s accuser is (was?) apparently a sister. They are being told not to wear letters around campus and are apparently being harassed. A girl’s car sporting letters was also vandalized via a tire slashing. I can find zero news articles to back this up but I’m sure the TFM tech guy and figure something out. Yeah… so that escalated quickly…
I went to Twitter, the always-breaking news source, in an attempt to back up and corroborate the information in this email.
So a DZ is Winston's accuser….lmfao no credibility.

FSU stop harassing DZ!! They didn't do anything. One girl doesn't represent an entire sorority. And we STILL DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

There is not much to go on here, unfortunately. We don’t see any mention of bomb threats, slashed tires, or DZ members being asked to lay low, but word is clearly beginning to spread that some form of harassment is taking place in Tallahassee.
The dark side of the college football fanatic rears its ugly head again.
