You make some good points. Was she pretty good friends with Monica, or other VAs? Then again, a hurt person may believe someone they are lightly acquainted with if they show sympathy to your situation and offer you a chance for retribution. Add in that the retribution is in the name of justice, and it seems like a good offer, in the short-term tho.I'm sorry but that isn't really a good argument at all. Look at it like this;
Somebody you were with for years admitted that they were incredibly unfaithful to you during that time. You can no longer trust anything they told you, but your VA friends are saying that he is all these terrible things. They told you he cheated on you, and now that you know they were right about that what else might they be right about?
Hurt hearts seek answers. If your friends are right about one thing and you have a great deal of hate, wouldn't it be easy to believe the other things?
Don't hold these statements against Specht just yet. Look at this objectively and you'll understand.
