Gayle Smith, a resident of Lehi, Utah has had a very difficult life. In a startling revelation she told this reporter that current Mormon Prophet, Thomas S Monson, attempted to rape her. The alleged event took place when Monson was a married man and the Bishop of Utah congregation.
Gayle stated that a friend of hers lined her up with a "blind date" with Thomas S Monson. The two apparently took a drive up one of Utah's Canyons and there, Monson allegedly tried to force himself on Gayle. She claimed, "He was like a wild animal" as he tore at her clothes. She resisted and he allegedly told her, "Don't you know that I am going to be a big man in the (Mormon) Church one day?
Apparently, she was able to break free from his grasp and exit the car. She started walking home and he followed her in his car, trying to apologize for what had taken place. Finally, she relented, and he apparently drove her home.
Gayle also stated that she and other "victims" stood up at a Stake Center where Thomas S Monson was preaching and "He turned as white as a ghost".
