Letterman Says Someone's Extorting Him
TMZ ^ | 10-1-09

Posted on 10/01/2009 7:08:15 PM PDT by Justaham

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.

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.

Whatta jerk!! Six months he’s been married.
Well, we did post pictures of her back then but that’s not the point.

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.

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...

This pompous @ss with the wide mouth bass bite continues to dig his hole. He’s too stoopid to figure out that Sarah Palin has been experiencing the very osterization that he is going through (and deserves) now. But Polansky wants to pretend that he’s the expert on whose opinions are valid.

I hope this jerk continues to lose all of his credibility.

Yeah, it is pretty funny about this turning up about Letterman. But, while it was being investigated he continued to harass Sarah.

IIRC,NY State is *not* a "no fault divorce" state.If I'm correct she just might be collecting evidence that she'll use in court to take him to the cleaners.

Gee Dave, didn’t anyone ever tell you that you shouldn’t s#it where you eat?

What comes around, goes around. What a Maroon.

Dave needs a new comedy bit to replace Great Moments in Presidential Speeches. How about Great Moments in Letterman’s Pants?

[Will his wife of his recent marriage?]

I think so. It says she was his girlfriend of 23 [?] years. She had 2 children by him I believe, before he married her.

I am quoting by memory as I didn't read all of the article.
Remember that pictures were posted of her and she is not very attractive. Many said, and I agreed, that we shouldn't be criticizing her looks.

Letterman is the boss

He controls who is on his staff

He controls who is hired or fired

From now on Letterman may be the butt of other hosts jokes -

Yeah I know he is the boss.
Your previous remark can be taken in two different ways. When I read it I thought you meant he was ‘hiring girlfriends for OTHER staff’.

It is the old Hollywood and NYC show-biz way

Except this time Letterman set himself up

Whoever tried to blackmail him should have written a book instead
But then Letterman would have turned his lawyers loose on him
