NEW YORK - Disgraced TV dad Bill Cosby has come up with a new excuse for scores of women who accuse him of sexually molesting them.

Radar Online says Cosby is turning a blind eye to rape allegations like those leveled by former supermodel Beverly Johnson. Court documents say the comedian is  "legally and functionally blind," an excuse some say he`s using to prove he could never have attacked 100 women over a 43-year period as he is accused of doing.

Cosby`s eye condition, caused by glaucoma and other eye ailments, is mentioned in the lawsuit he filed against Johnson over her sexual assault claims.

Johnson joins a group of sexual accusers being sued by Cosby over what he calls "malicious and opportunistic" claims.

Johnson claims Cosby drugged her coffee in the 1980`s and she had to fight him off.
