Judge Lifts Restraining Order Banning D.C. Madam From Revealing Client List
Fox News ^ | 06 Jul 07 | AP

Posted on 07/06/2007 5:58:35 AM PDT by stm

WASHINGTON — A woman accused of running a prostitution ring in the nation's capital is free to distribute thousands of pages of phone records after a federal judge lifted a restraining order on Thursday.

U.S. District Court Judge Gladys Kessler's order granted the request of Deborah Jeane Palfrey, 51, of Vallejo, Calif., to quash restrictions by government prosecutors that prohibited her from giving away the list.

"As a result, Jeane has determined to release those records under certain conditions to qualified individuals or organizations," wrote her attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, in an e-mail.

Palfrey and her attorney have said the list contains up to 15,000 names and could shake up Washington by revealing high-profile individuals.

I doubt anyone is on the list of any importance. If so, it would have been leaked earlier.

If you are rich and successful in DC and have to pay for sex, you are sad.

Even the most disgustingly fat rich guys get some in DC without paying for it.

Yes, but we'll probably find out that in most cases somebody else paid for it. After all most money in DC is spent on bribes.

Yep, bribes or blackmail. You're even given the choice sometimes(accept the bribe or get blackmailed).

So a Clinton appointee wants all(?) the names published? The word “distraction” comes to mind. Methinks that the Congress may need some extra scrutiny in the near future if this becomes a feeding frenzy by the DBM. After what they tried to sneak through last May (CIR)who knows what the ruling class will try next.

All hype, I remeber that ABC news had the list a while back and no damage was done. I figure it will be much ado about nothing. Of course, as we all know, the MSM will protect the rats.

No why oh why would the gubmint lawyers want to quash the release? Why are they afraid? What do they know about that list that they don't want made public?

After all, Gary Condit isn't in Congress now. /s

***... and a nervous shudder was felt through Washington as wives ears perked up.***


Time to insert an email joke.

Subject: FW: Alabama Preacher

Alabama Preacher

The Alabama preacher said to his congregation, “Someone in this congregation has spread a rumor that I belong to the Ku Klux Klan. This is a horrible lie and one which a Christian community cannot tolerate. I am embarrassed and do not intend to accept this. Now, I want the party who did this to Stand and ask forgiveness from God and this Christian Family.”

No one moved. The preacher continued, “Do you have the nerve to face me and admit this is a falsehood? Remember, you will be forgiven and in your heart you will feel glory. Now stand and confess your transgression.”

Again all was quiet. Then slowly, a drop-dead gorgeous blond with a body that would stop traffic rose from the third pew. Her head was bowed and her voice quivered as she spoke, “Reverend there has been a terrible misunderstanding. I never said you were a member of the Ku Klux Klan. I simply told a couple of my friends that you were a wizard under the sheets.”

The preacher fell to his knees, his wife fainted, and the Congregation roared!
