Dave Letterman on Late Night June 10

David Letterman used his June 10 “Late Night” program to confront the daughter-raping issue head on.

Insisting that when he talks about daughters being raped, “Late Night” host David Letterman said on his June 10 broadcast that “I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl” and noted that when he spoke of Sarah Palin’s daughter being raped, he was referring to the 18 year-old, not the 14 year-old.

Nipping the recent controversy in the bud, Letterman went on to declare “you can rest assured, all of your daughters under the age of 15 are perfectly safe around me.”
