There is a lot of drama between some female former A+ list gymnasts.
Apparently there is an abuse bill making its way through Congress which came about because of the sexual abuse suffered by gymnasts at the hand of the team doctor.
One of the top 3 US gymnasts of all time is trying to stop the bill.
She says she is looking at it from a business perspective and is perfectly willing to throw everyone else under the bus.

Nastia Liukin ‘completely shocked’ by allegations against ex-USA Gymnastics doctor
NBC Olympics analyst Nastia Liukin said Dr. Larry Nassar treated her injuries throughout her national-team career, and every encounter with him was professional.
Liukin, speaking at the AT&T American Cup on Saturday, said she was “completely shocked” about sexual-assault allegations against Nassar, a USA Gymnastics team doctor from 1996 to 2015.
Liukin was a senior national-team member from 2005-09 and again in 2012.
“I’m completely shocked when I heard all the news,” Liukin said on NBC. “Every encounter that I had with him was professional. My whole experience on the national team with USA Gymnastics was nothing but positive.” – Source
Raisman criticizes USA Gymnastics, USOC for response to sex abuse scandal
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Three-time Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman criticized both USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee for their response to the sport’s sexual abuse crisis, saying she feels as if they’re more concerned about sweeping it under the rug or protecting themselves legally than making sure it never happens again.
In a joint interview with USA TODAY Sports and the Associated Press on Saturday, Raisman said revelations of widespread abuse by longtime team physician Larry Nassar and the reaction by the governing bodies has colored how she views her sport.
“The people at the very top, that work at the office every single day at USA Gymnastics, they need to do better,” Raisman said.
“It’s making me sad,” she added. “I’m here to support my teammates because we got inducted to the Hall of Fame and I’m here to support the girls who are competing. I love the Olympics, I love gymnastics, I love the sport.
“But I don’t support how USA Gymnastics is handling everything right now.” – Source
Dominique Moceanu Says USA Gymnastics, Karolyis ‘Set the Stage’ for ‘Atrocities’ in Physician Sex Abuse Case
Dominique Moceanu has spoken out in support of the three former Team USA gymnasts who “bravely” came forward in a 60 Minutes piece Sunday evening to accuse former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse — and contends that the “culture” within the organization can “set the stage for such atrocities to take place.”
Moceanu, 35, has long been critical of the sport’s governing body, which she says failed to support her after she came forward with her own allegations of emotional and physical abuse by coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi.
In her statement posted Monday evening, Moceanu again repeated those allegations, which she says makes her have “tremendous admiration” for the three former gymnasts who shared their stories with 60 Minutes: Jamie Dantzscher, Jeannette Antolin and Jessica Howard. The women claim they were abused by Nassar while training at the Karolyi Ranch outside Houston, Texas.
“I have tremendous admiration for the gymnasts who have bravely come forward to share their painful stories. I, personally, was not assaulted by Dr. Nassar. However, after years of suffering other forms of physical and emotional abuse and neglect under the Karolyis, as well as being ostracized and overlooked by USAG when I did speak out, I have first-hand knowledge of how the culture set the stage for such atrocities to take place,” she wrote. – Source
