The Left will predictably rally around him, like they did with Roman Polanski, perhaps even championing paedophilia and incest as alternative family sex.

In her own words: Dylan Farrow, pictured here as a child in 1988 with her adoptive father, Woody Allen, wrote a candid first-person account accusing the filmmaker of sexually abusing her since she was seven years old
Woody Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow penned an open letter Saturday on a New York Times blog, publicly accusing the controversial filmmaker of sexually assaulting her when she was a young girl.
Farrow’s first-person account, which appeared on reporter Nicholas Kritoff’s blog, marks the first time that Miss Farrow, the daughter of actress Mia Farrow, has directly addressed the alleged sex abuse.
In gut-wrenching detail, Dylan Farrow wrote in her statement how at age seven, her adoptive father, Allen, allegedly led her by the hand to a dim attic on the second floor of their house.
‘He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set,’ Miss Farrow recounted. ‘Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies.’
She noted that to this day, she finds it hard to look at toy trains.
Farrow went on to describe how the award-winning director of ‘Annie Hall’ and ‘Manhattan’ would always find a way to touch her and do things to her she did not like, including sticking his thumb in her mouth, forcing her to get into bed with him and placing his head in her naked lap.
‘I thought this was how fathers doted on their daughters. But what he did to me in the attic felt different,’ she said.
