US lawmakers aim to strip Bill Cosby of presidential medal

US Representative Paul Gosar speaks during a press conference on January 7, 2016 to announce legislation that would revoke actor Bill Cosby's Medal of FreedomA bipartisan group of US lawmakers was set to introduce legislation Friday that provides President Barack Obama authority to revoke the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Bill Cosby, the actor-turned-pariah facing several rape accusations. The medal was established half a century ago as the nation’s highest civilian honor, but in July Obama acknowledged there was no mechanism for officially revoking the award. Members of Congress are moving to empower the president to do just that, rolling out a bill that also provides criminal penalties for anyone who publicly displays such a medal that has been stripped.
