MEN AND WOMEN
The list of women Maciel seduced and exploited economically does not end here, according to Alejandro Espinosa, an ex Legionary who, despite being Maciel's own nephew, was not spared from falling into his clutches. Talita Reyes, Pepita Gandarillas, Pachita Pérez, Deme de Galas, Dolores Barroso, Guillermina Dikins, Josefita or Consuelo Fernández, widow of a Spanish diplomat assigned to Mexico, among others succumbed to the man with the mask of piety and holiness. He always referred to it as his "sickness", an alleged illness consisting in the retention of semen, which closed the urinary tract and caused much prostate pain. According to him, he needed sex as a cure. All those who gave it to him were devote ladies and benefactors with whom he had relationship between the '40s and '70s, when he wasn't getting it from seminarians and priests from the schools he had opened around the world.
Many of these women can not sue for their share now. But with time, new voices will be heard. There is talk of one more child, or two, or three...Some would be able to claim and inheritance through lawyers as did José Bonilla, the only one to win a law suit against the Legion for pedophilia in Mexico. Others, like the Spanish daughter, have, for the moment, been content with a financial agreement.
-You deserve much money now that the Legion has, not only for inheritance, but also for all the moral damage...
-Of course, we [feminine plural] have suffered very much.
