Yesterday, the Dr. Phil show aired an “exclusive” interview with Greg Bucceroni of Philadelphia, who claimed he was once a child prostitute victimized by every famous pedophile in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, including Jerry Sandusky.
Dr. Phil appeared to believe his story. But according to the Philadelphia Daily News, nobody else does. Law enforcement officials say his claims are unfounded. Former Governor Ed Rendell says Bucceroni is “crackers.” And, regarding Bucceroni’s claims of being a junior mob associate, a real wise guy called him a “psychopath.”
On the same show, Dr. Phil talked to Travis Weaver, the only alleged victim who has talked publicly about being molested by Sandusky. Weaver testified before a grand jury and is suing Sandusky, Sandusky’s Second Mile organization and Penn State. If you watch the show, Weaver’s demeanor, and his description of what happened, were totally different from the story Bucceroni told.
It appears that Dr. Phil has been conned.
