After being on the University of Kansas campus for less than a week in Augustscholarship freshman rower Sarah McClure says a football player sexually assaulted her. McClure, then an year-old from Chicago, minces no words, describing her life since then as nothing short of a living hell. The constant fear. The cold sweats. Afraid for other women who might come into contact with her assailant. A hour reminder of a nightmare playing in her head, hoping to wake up and realize this is not a dream.
I have PTSD. I have a support dog. I couldn't move for days. I cried for days. Ten months earlier another female rower, Daisy Tackett, says the same football player sexually assaulted her following a Halloween party on Nov. I want him to pay for what he did. He has not been criminally charged or named as a defendant in either lawsuit and, through his attorneys, adamantly denied the allegations to SI.
Goldenberg was permanently expelled, ordered to stay away from both women, banned from campus for the next 10 years, and had an undisclosed notation placed on his transcript. His lawyer declined to provide this letter to SI. Goldenberg again maintained his innocence despite the departure from Kansas. His attorney says his client is not planning on suing anyone for defamation at this point. Goldenberg transferred to Indiana State University, where he promptly ed the football team as a long snapper this past summer.
ISU officials said there is no protocol or statute on transfer rules pertaining to any student who has a notation on their transcript as Goldenberg was supposed to have. When asked how and why they admitted Goldenberg to Indiana State, officials could not give a definitive answer, only saying they are conducting a review and are in the process of looking into changing the process for transfers who have been expelled from a institution.
Goldenberg was eventually dismissed from the team. Steps have been taken to ensure this situation is not repeated. Because of privacy limitations, the University will not release further details. Indiana State athletic director Sherard Clinkscales says he did not find out about Goldenberg until Aug. Clinkscales declined to go into detail about what oversights could have allowed Goldenberg to walk on the football team in the first place. Hyman, who was Goldenberg's position coach and moved to a non-football role at Kansas at the end of the season, is the only person who was disciplined relating to Goldenberg's dismissal.
While the admissions department is separate from the athletic department, there is precedent at Indiana State for allowing student athletes with checkered pasts to participate with the football team. ISU head coach Mike Sanford told the Associated Press last year the school does not require background checks of prospective students after adding ex-Indiana safety Antonio Allen, who the Hoosiers dismissed after his arrest for dealing methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine. After the alleged assaults at Kansas, the women allege that university administrators and the rowing coaches abandoned them in their time of need.
At every turn, the two accusers claim, the coaches were complicit in creating a hostile environment of intimidation and ridicule from other members of the rowing team, suffered verbal abuse for the coaches and that Kansas failed them by not providing adequate protection from their attacker.
And not give me any resources that I could ever have. I would always say they made my life a living hell. Over and over and over again. SI contacted the Kansas rowing coaches to address the allegations, but they too declined comment.
McClure, Tackett and their parents have brought a class action lawsuit against the University of Kansas under the Consumer Protection Act and Title IX, a federal statute that prohibits gender discrimination at schools that receive federal funds and allows for the punishment of schools that violate the law. McClure has separately sued the University of Kansas. Goldenberg has not been named as a defendant in either lawsuit.
The Kansas Protection Act protects citizens from deceptive or fraudulent business practices, and in their lawsuit, the Tacketts want the university to stop saying that the dorms on campus are safe. They filed an amendment to the lawsuit on Aug. When asked what makes the residence halls safe, Barcomb-Peterson forwarded SI a list of safety amenities provided by Kansas, where a hour staffed main desk is available in the residence halls, but not in scholarship halls or on-campus apartments. The school stands by claims saying it is confident in the safety on campus, and any suggestion otherwise is not true.
Sexual assault has been and still is an issue that universities across the country have failed to get a handle on. What follows is a look into both women's lawsuits, the role of the school in protecting both women and possible systematic failures of both of Kansas, Indiana State and the Department of Education, that allowed Goldenberg to transfer another university and go virtually undetected for months. Daisy Tackett always was a big dreamer. A go-getter, not one to give up ambition or listen to people who told her she could not do something. Tackett grew up in the Dallas area and says she took up rowing in the eighth grade, as her father and aunt rowed during their time in college.
While attending the Hockaday School, which is a private girls' high school in Dallas, she also excelled on the track team, throwing the discus and shot put. She moved to Florida during her junior year, but by the time she was set to graduate she had rowing scholarship offers from multiple schools, including Kansas, Duquesne, Tulsa, and Massachusetts. Impressed the most by Kansas during the recruitment process, she decided to make the leap and commit to the school.
That was the lynchpin of my decision. Arriving on campus, Tackett decided to fill her time with activities. Along with a full course load and rowing team responsibilities, she decided to the student senate. But less than three months later, Tackett claims in the lawsuit that she was brutally attacked by Goldenberg following a Halloween party where other attendees were drinking alcohol and doing drugs at Jayhawker Towers, a student dormitory located near the center of campus. Yeah, I'm a big rower and I have strength. Unsure of what to do or where to go for help, Tackett said she kept quiet, except telling two close friends about the assault.
And at the time it happened there were no protections in place for student athletes that said, 'Hey if I drank and I was assaulted and I want to report it, that I wouldn't lose my scholarship because I was drinking. The IOA is a university department, which according to their website, has many functions, including investigating discrimination and harassment complaints. The school currently has two [sexual assault] cases that are being investigated by the Department of Education. Tackett claims the officials at the IOA told her she had one year to file a sexual assault complaint and when she went to the department for help in doing that, she says they were no help at all.
In the state of Kansas, criminal charges for aggravated criminal sodomy, murder, terrorism, or illegal use of weapons of mass destruction are the only crimes can be filed at any time. Every other crime under Kansas law has a five-year statute of limitations, says Cheryl Wright-Kunard, an assistant to the district attorney in Douglas County, the same jurisdiction that declined to press charges in the McClure case.
Fed up with the process, Tackett says she decided to stick it out at Kansas, but the harassment continued. Tackett finally left the school only two days into the spring semester after she alleges in her lawsuit that Goldenberg and friends of his on the football team continuously harassed her.
Like Tackett, McClure also had family members who rowed and was looking to make her mark in the sport. Her older sister rowed at the University of Oklahoma. The attacker, according to Lawrence World Reportwas not suspected of using alcohol, drugs or a weapon. McClure and Ms. McClure also reported her assault to the IOA and says she was repeatedly stonewalled when trying to get services she needed to cope with the assault. But the disappointment of leaving school and pursing her dreams of rowing bothers McClure, and she lays the blame squarely at Kansas, among others.
And I could be the loud, fiery person and not be judged for it. I'm loud, I'm scary. I'm intimidating. I get stuff done. I tell people what to do and I make people winners. That's what I do. She fears Goldenberg will attack other women. I want him prosecuted. They came across like that would treat her like a family member, that she would be safe, and then they completely shut her out. We were lied to repeatedly. For nearly two years, she says it has been a struggle for her family and she is trying to understand how this happened at a place like the University of Kansas.
Daisy Tackett currently attends New York University, where she hopes to continue her education in history and international relations. This is not for me. Someone needs to be held able. Kansas is a public university and this type of stuff is happening across the board. She has also been attending outpatient, group therapy and individual therapy.
Because at the end of the day, the schools need to step up and take care of us. McClure is back home under the watchful eye of her parents, who still have hopes that their daughter achieves the dreaming of returning to rowing and becoming a veterinarian. We just want her to be well before she goes off again.
Now 19, McClure says she misses rowing and feels like a lot of people are responsible for her life today. It was a piece of my heart. It was a piece for me and forever will be. When all of that happened, it felt like they took that away from me. That was a huge part of my life for seven years. For now, the therapy, the support of her friends and family will have to do, but she issued a pointed warning to anyone, including the University of Kansas, Goldenberg and anyone else who has gotten in her way of pursing justice and her dreams.
You have to keep pushing because you know there are still many females out there that have been shoved under the rug, not cared about and treated worse than dog crap.
