Posted on 04/07/2011 1:00:59 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
HONOLULU -- One of President Barack Obama's close friends has been arrested in Honolulu on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute. Robert "Bobby" Titcomb was one of four men arrested in an undercover sting operation late Monday and later released on $500 bail, according to Honolulu police.
Titcomb, 49, attended Punahou School in Honolulu with Obama in the 1970s. The president graduated in 1979, a year before Titcomb. The two often golf, play basketball, go to the beach and dine together when the president returns home to Hawaii for vacation.
Obama's family has also attended barbeques at Titcomb's beachside home in Waialua, located on Oahu's North Shore about an hour outside of downtown Honolulu.

Male or Female prostitute???
Looks like Titcomb was busted.
“Male or Female prostitute???”
Now, that is the question!
I wonder if Dog bailed him out?
They are vague on that bit of info.
Male? Female? Other?...................
If the chest is hairy enough to need a titcomb, it must be male.
There are a lot of shemale hookers in Hawaii.
Yeah... nothing said in article about the nature of the prostitution. Not that I would have particularly wanted to be the undercover detective had this been gay prostitution.
As far as I knew, most 'internet stings' of this type were aimed at capturing pedophiles. If this particular operation was aimed at 'johns' seeking 'regular' prostitutes then it is the first of its type I have heard about.
Finally there's news about someone who knew him when he was a kid in Hawaii.
IMHO this is part of something bigger. I think we are about to see life getting a little more challenging for Obama's monkeys. Something that may bring out plea bargaining material.
Did they arrest the prostitute?
There should be a mugshot that’s available to the public.
Obama will have the records sealed!
According to Obama’s bio, his friend is employed as a flight attendant. Pretty high living for a flight attendant. http://archives.starbulletin.com/2004/03/21/news/story4.html
ATTENTION FREEPERS! Original report from HAWAII says Obama’s butt buddy ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF PROSTITUTION!!
AP and others have changes it to solicitation.
More interesting stuff. I particularly like the part where he calls Obama a chameleon, who makes stories up as he sees fit.
Sounds like another homosexual....birds of a feather.... Will be interesting to find out the sex of the prostitute....if it is male it will confirm my psychoanalysis of the closeted zero who has a very sick and twisted worldview.
The ironic thing is that if it was a male prostitute, much like Huey Rodham’s cocaine induced shooting incident in the poconos while he was banging the neighbor’s wife, this too will vanish like a popcorn fart in the Santa Anna winds.
Your prose needs to be heralded from the towers of CNN, but, of course, it won’t be. LOL
Why would they? Seriously now...
And my money would have gone on anybody named Titcomb!

Flight attendant? Titicomb might be gay.

Titcomb is not just a random airline employee but a flight attendant. With Sinclair and the church guys, well, just saying. Also, he’s not just a friend whom Hussein golfs with in Hawaii but he’s the one that it took not one, not two, but TEN big black government issued SUVs to drive The Won to meet with Titcomb during the last island taxpayer funded getaway.
“If this particular operation was aimed at ‘johns’ seeking ‘regular’ prostitutes then it is the first of its type I have heard about.”
They do plenty of stings like this, to catch people who patronize escort services or look for prostitutes on craigslist or other sites. Most child sex predator stings would not be referred to as prostitution stings.
“ATTENTION FREEPERS! Original report from HAWAII says Obamas butt buddy ARRESTED ON SUSPICION OF PROSTITUTION!!”
Obviously it’s not a nefarious cover-up, since the same article says this:
“Police say the suspect showed up at the intersection of South Street and Pohukaina Street Monday night to meet an escort from an online service. Titcomb allegedly offered to pay the escort, who was actually an undercover officer, $100 for sex.
It’s what police call a “reverse sting” — an operation designed to net Johns instead of prostitutes.”
So, it’s sloppy reporting at best.
Zero references to any spouse or children.
If it’s gay prostitution, is the “John”, a “Jane”?
Titcomb? Titcomb? Where have I heard that name before?
Any bets on how hard it was for the officers to refrain from laughing?
I'm going out on a limb here on a chix with dix prostitution sting. The T-Gals are all the rage in Hawaii.
I just don’t think we’re going to see it announced in the news gay or straight escort.
In my personal observation - my straight friends don’t go to Honolulu (since, the mid 80’s at least....) my gay friends go there - and move there before they realize how expensive it is to live there.
My personal opinion is it was a male escort
again, just my opinion, and thoughts....
“If its gay prostitution, is the John, a Jane?”
I guess that depends on if he’s a top or a bottom, eh?
It's what they didn't say is what matters. Was the undercover police officer a male or a female?
You mean to tell me the white hut didn't come out and say that "he was just a guy in the neighborhood"?
How utterly stupid! He has to PAY for sex with a man/woman? And meet on a street corner? Why not a limo? (wink, nudge)

Frederick Titcomb , retired judge
By Curtis Lum, ADVERTISER STAFF WRITER
Frederick James Kealiimahiai Titcomb , a retired District Court judge and former Honolulu deputy prosecuting attorney, died Friday in Honolulu. He was 77.
Born in Honolulu, Titcomb was a descendant of early U.S. settlers. He also was of Hawaiian and Chinese ancestry and his great-great-grandfather, sugar plantation owner Charles Titcomb , married into Hawaiian royalty.
Frederick Titcomb graduated from St. Louis High School and was a student at Washington State College when the United States entered World War II in 1941. He dropped out of college to enlist in the Army and served in New Guinea and the Philippines.
Titcomb earned a Purple Heart and two Bronze Star medals for his combat service.
After the war, he returned to Washington State College and then attended Cornell University. He married, and he and his first wife, Norma, returned to Hawaii. The couple would later divorce.
The family moved to San Francisco in 1953 so Titcomb could pursue a legal education at the University of California’s Hastings College of Law. To put himself through school and to support his family, Titcomb worked as a warehouseman, trucker, door-to-door salesman and night janitor at Hastings.
After graduating, he returned to Hawaii and worked as a law clerk for Judge Jon Wiig. In 1956, he went to work as a city prosecutor, where he won more than 40 consecutive jury convictions.
In 1960, Titcomb ran as a Republican against Dan Inouye for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Inouye won by a nearly 3-to-1 margin and two years later was elected to the Senate.
In 1962, Titcomb was named a Honolulu District Court judge. In addition to practicing law, Titcomb was a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild and was frequently seen on “Hawaii Five-0.”
In 1983, Titcomb married Marcia Vander Zicht, who was his nurse after open-heart surgery.
In addition to his wife and his former wife, Titcomb is survived by sons, James, William and Robert daughters, Carol Hartley and Laura Goode 16 grandchildren one great-grandchild.
Titcomb was a year behind Obama at Punahou High School, but did not graduate.
Very little is known about his background.
According to the Spring 2007 edition of the Punahou Bulletin, he worked as a commercial fisherman and a Northwest Airlines flight attendant.
Was the undercover officer male or female? Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks Maggie....Wonder of the arresting officer is also the undercover officer and would be listed on the arrest warrent....Hmmm?
Robert Titcomb was caught after he solicited sex from an undercover female police officer he had contacted through the Internet, said Dave Koga, a spokesman for the Honolulu Department of the Prosecuting Attorney.
Police arrested four men in connection with a reverse prostitution sting involving a fake online female escort website, sources said.
Isn't that what could be expected when you think back to his "Church's"(?) choir director and Larry Sinclair, and who is the guy that always is in his wake???
