Bad News for the D.C.Madam

Now here is something about which I am just stunned. Really. It seems that one of the former clients of Jeane Palfrey’s escort service, Harlan Ullman, is prepared to testify that he did in fact have sex with women he hired through the service. Which would appear to give the lie to Palfrey’s ridiculous defense in this case, which was that no sex happened. Not a good development for Madam Palfrey, I’d say. Assuming that she stands firm in her refusal to accept a plea, and assuming the reports are true regarding Mr. Ullman’s expected testimony, I would predict that Ms. Palfrey will be convicted and do time.

    Harlan knows what many of Palfrey’s clients know. SHE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS HER PHONE RECORDS. Any of these clients who has political enemies knows that thanks to the new “tape everything all the time – no warrant necessary” environment, there are tapes of the conversations. And if the trist took place in a hotel in D.C. there is a very good chance there are video tapes. Welcome to the new big brother universe. Only you don’t know which big brother has the tapes…is it the Republicans, the Dems, the FBI, the CIA, Lockeed, Carlyle, Homeland Security, etc. etc etc.

    Anyone who thinks they are having secret sex in D.C. is delusional.

    The johns who are outed will take the confession and rehabilitation route. The ones who are too important to out will be saved for blackmail purposes later.

    It’s not pretty, but there is is.

    You are right except that nothing is on tape now, it is kept permanently on computer disks and drives. Including the video.
