Hoaxster: I had romantic feelings for Manti Te’o

Via Deadspin, two quick things about this. One: Against all odds, despite every fiber of your being telling you that no one could possibly be so gullible, it looks like Manti Te’o really might be innocent. As far as I know, the only person even tangentially related to this clusterfark who’s claimed that Te’o might be in on it is J.R. Vaosa, whose cousin was also allegedly duped by Tuiasosopo a few years ago. But even he’s come around. After initially telling Deadspin that he was 80 percent sure Te’o must have known it was a hoax, he told ESPN more recently that he thinks Te’o is blameless.
Two: Listen to “Lennay’s” voice in the clip. C’mon, that’s not really Tuiasosopo, is it? Isn’t it way, way more likely that he had a female accomplice and now he’s determined to take the fall for her and anyone else involved?
