It leaked out after the show premiered -- when the public (including The Smoking Gun) started to pay attention to the show. It just happened that Rob was due to make an ass of himself in Epsiode 2.
>"accosting a female officer" never should have leaked out, I
Why not? They aren't sealed records... why doesn't the public have a right to know?
>wonder how it did and why? They didnt' kick
>Rob off the show after they found out
Um... you realize the show was taped months ago, correct? So please explain how they could "kick Rob off the show" -- they had two choices -- continue to air it, or pull it from the airwaves. You make it sound like they could have just replaced Rob starting in Episode 3....
>and he dealt with the situation at that time and resolved it,
He "dealt with it" -- the military disciplined him, that's like trying to state that a bank robber "dealt with his crime" by agreeing to do jail time. What other choice did he have???

Please educate yourself to the situation. The story wasn't broken by a tabloid, it was broken by TheSmokingGun.com. The woman didn't even want her name revealed when contacted by the website.
And Rob certainly DID try to explain himself:
Campos, described in his NBC bio as "keen, intelligent, honest and hospitable," said he was unable to recall any details of the incident because he was "too drunk," but that "my buddies said she got angry because I was too drunk to get it up."
Classy explanation... guess he was the victim.
And Rob DID go to the tabloids -- he went to "Access Hollywood", the tabloid news show (owned by NBC), and gave them his "exclusive" side of the story.
>Then there was the night of drinking too much and asking
>for help with his boots. Rob is an intelligent

Yes, you're correct, he must have been framed... the producers must have digitally created that footage, Intelligent Rob would never have put himself in that situation...
> He came across as treating these women with disrespect
>and a bit impulsive with a lack of self control.
> He knew he'd have to answer to these women
>and to the media. Was he just testing these
>woman to see what they would be like after he

Ya... out of all the possible scenarios out there, sure, that's the one that's at the top of my list in terms of likelyhood. Are you serious???
>Hasn't anyone out there >attended university or college where
>>in a drunken stupor you >did something you later regretted?
>Yes, I'm quite sure they have, but they will be reluctant
>to admit to it, downplay it or rationalize their way
>out of it.
Were you 29 years old in college? Had you already attended 6 years of college at the time? Because that was Rob's situation when he committed his actions -- comparing the actions of a 29 year old man to those of an 18 year old freshman is not a valid analogy.
>If she realled cares about Rob, she
>should be concerned about how he's dealing with the stress
>and misfortune NBC has created.
Yes, yes... poor Rob has been victimized by NBC... poor innocent, intelligent Rob has once yet again the victim of the world's horrible anti-Ron prejudice.
