David Letterman says someone has demanded $2 million from him in return for not blowing the lid on Letterman's sexual liaisons in his office.
Letterman said on his show tonight he received a package 3 weeks ago from someone claiming to have info about sexual escapades between Letterman and some female employees on his staff.
According to Nikki Finke the individual said Letterman would have to pay $2 million to keep the info secret.
Letterman went on to say he contacted the Special Prosecution Bureau of the Manhattan D.A.'s office. He said the D.A. investigated and cut a phony $2 million check to the alleged extortionist who was arrested today.
Letterman says he testified today before the grand jury. In his testimony, he says he acknowledged sexual relationships with members of his staff.
Letterman married his girlfriend of 23 years last March.

It took him 23 years to decide to marry her?
He had brain damage as a youth ~ too many cold beers destroyed his “I want to get married” neurons.
Can someone else post more Letterman extortion stories? This is only about the 10th one in the last 15 minutes.
23 years and a seven(?) year old child. Apparently she gave him the old ultimatum and he didn’t want to lose his child...so I guess he deserves some points for that.
They should have demanded he say something funny...
The old letcher...
Does this rise to the level of the “ethics complaints” against Sarah Palin?
He must have met her the last time he was funny or did an original comedy bit.
[he acknowledged sexual relationships with MEMBERS of his staff. Letterman married his girlfriend of 23 years last March.]
Whatta jerk!! Six months he’s been married.
Well, we did post pictures of her back then but that’s not the point.
Reminds me of John Edwards fiasco.
Sex with members of his staff...no wonder him and Bill get along so well.
Note the members, plural.
Meanwhile he just loved to make jokes about Spitzer, Edwards, Sanford, Clinton, etc.. The man is a total sleazebag.
Ironic that CBS new big show is about about a DA who gets caught in affair and how it affects his wife.
Good thing Obama decides to go on shows with guys who have affairs with their young staffers, abuse their authority.
Well, at least the truth about Letterman comes out. No wonder NBC passed him over for Jay. they must have known what a total sleaze the man is.
Could not have happened to a worst guy or weatherman.
Too true...I think they have this backwards...Letterman is probably offering the story for $2 mill...and nobody is buying it.
Let the sexual harrassment lawsuits begin!!!!
[Could not have happened to a worst guy or weatherman.]
I know! Tickles me silly and I’ll bet Sarah is loving it!!
Just sorry for the wife.
Letterman should have just gone to his local ACORN-sponsored Illegal Alien Child Sex Slave brothel.
It would have been cheaper, (and endorsed by DEMOCRATS!), in the end...
it sounds like he his wife approves ,in which case he has an open marriage or she disapproves and could be in on some of this extortion plot
