Domestic Violence Lobbyist: We Want Oksana

Camille Hayes, Membership & Communications Coordinator for California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, tells TMZ Oksana contacted her group several weeks ago and offered her help. Hayes says she and her group believe Oksana is a domestic violence victim.

Since the initial call, Oksana has been in contact with the organization numerous times offering help for other women. Hayes says both Oksana and her lawyer have been in discussions with the organization about a role Oksana could play -- but no specifics have been decided.

As we first reported, Oksana plans to go public in a big way -- holding news conferences about domestic violence.

I am STUNNED. For 30+yrs I have worked to help us do better when it comes to Domestic Violence.

WHY on earth would a legitimate DV lobby group solicit any involvement from Oksana Grigorieva?

Her creditibility is NIL. And her accusations have been so convaluted and inconsistent they do the OPPOSITE of helping advance the effort IMO.

Oksana's actions specifically fly in the face of much of the effort that has been put in place since the mid-80s.

She didn't contact the police
She didn't seek out a DV counseler or shelter
She didn't approach the courts for a TRO
She didn 't seek prompt and immediate medical care for her daughter or herself.
She TOLD mandatory reporters NOT to report.
She illegally taped Mel Gibson.
She didn't turn the tape over to the DA.
She has used the media to taunt and bait her alleged abuser for months.

She has used allegations of DV at the same time she bemoans about money, setting up for Domestic Violence allegations to be LINKED to counterclaims of Extortion.

She has purposefully defied court orders, interfered with ongoing police investigations, and tried to FIGHT providing authorities access to her commputer and phone all the while claiming a HUGE part of the DV allegations were ROOTED to PHONE CALLS.

What happens if Oksana is charged by the DA? Where does this DV lobby group's creditility go?

SOMETHING IS VERY VERY VERY WRONG out there!

Interesting that after we start making comments about Oksana aligning herself with these organizations and how they may not even be aware that she is naming them in her publicity efforts, a rep from one of those organizations is commenting to TMZ and letting us know that THEY contacted Oksana. If we had any doubts at all that Oksana's people read these posts, they have now been put to rest.

Ox is the reason dv victims can't get help and for any dv organization that support her discredit themselves. Now I see why victims keep getting victimize. Organization that support women like Ox spit in victims faces. I wonder how much money they where promise to do this? You know they were promise something. It sicken me to think they would stoop this low.

I wouldn't support any group she is associated with. On principal. I won't be watching Larry King live either. Her focus is still on HIS behavior, when she needs to be focusing more on HER own. The continual presentation of "vulnerable, victimized me just looking for love in all the wrong places".... she's got a lot of "self" work to do before she starts "treating" others.

Hey Camille Whatsits, go read the pediatricians declaration on her observations for January 7, 2010. Maybe you should think about this a little more, eh?

Oksana will make a mockery out of these organizations just like everything else she touches.

The only usefulness using her would be in a DO NOT DO THIS sort of way.

These organizations must know that Oksana will trivialize domestic violence the moment she opens her mouth.

This a true shame cause domestic violence is really a serious issue and this move will surely hurt their cause.

As I have said since this whole thing started, the Nucking Futs piano player and her scamming crew have set the cause of domestic violence victims back almost 30 years. An entire generation.

No relationship is safe -- false and ugly accusations used as an extortion tool.

Law enforcement is being mocked, even after the huge investment ALL law enforcement agencies have made in training and procedures to be sensitive to all issues in domestic situations.

Just disgusting and sad. The only people losing are the children.

Spider I know they are reading these posts. It is sad they are getting their legal strategies from our posts. This sad day for all the REAL VICTIMS out there. They are using dv as ploy to resurrect Ox's image which show how they really think about the victims.

I would think, hope, that Mel can have an order issued that she cannot mention his name in any form. There is no evidence that he abused her.

How much does this organizazation think it will behelped if Oksana is brought up on extortion charge? I think Oksana is trying to pressure the DA to charge Mel with DV.

So this abuse group is willing to let Ox be a spokesperson when the person she has accused of DV has not been charged. Interesting.
