Sunday could be a bittersweet first Mother's Day for Casey Greenfield.

Greenfield is a pretty, ginger-haired, Yale-educated lawyer and writer who last March gave birth to a love child. The baby's father is married CNN star and best-selling New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin. (Casey's father is esteemed political pundit Jeff Greenfield.) Ever since we broke the news of her pregnancy, Casey has remained silent about the baby drama. But now some of her friends are fed up with what they claim is less-than-gallant behavior on Toobin's part.

Greenfield, now 36, was in her 20s when she fell for Toobin, now 49, even though he was wed to Amy McIntosh, the Harvard sweetheart he'd married in 1986 and who gave him two children.

"Jeff and Casey saw each other off and on over the years," says one source. "She was married to someone else for two years. After her divorce, she started seeing Jeff again. He said he was going to leave his wife for her. But, by then, Casey had begun to distrust him. She suspected he had several other mistresses."

In 2008, when Greenfield became pregnant, and when she told Toobin the news, he offered her "money if she'd have an abortion," says a source. He also allegedly offered to pay for her to have another child later via a sperm donor.

"When Casey wouldn't have an abortion, Jeff told her she was going to regret it, that she shouldn't expect any help from him," claims another source.

Greenfield underwent a risky DNA test while pregnant, but Toobin didn't provide his sample and stopped talking to her, according to sources. On the day she gave birth, Greenfield e-mailed Toobin, inviting him to meet his son, Rory. A source says Toobin didn't reply.

Toobin ultimately cooperated with a DNA test that proved he was Rory's dad. In February, a Manhattan Family Court judge ordered him to pay child support. When he refused to pay the full amount, say sources, Greenfield's lawyer threatened to notify his employers and garnish his wages; Toobin then paid up.

Toobin now sees the 13-month-old lookalike heir. "His wife, Amy, comes with them to the park," says a source. He's said to have asked to spend every other weekend with Rory.

"Casey isn't convinced he really wants to serve as a dad," says a friend. "It may be legal maneuvering."

Attorneys for Toobin and Greenfield didn't respond to requests for comment.

"It's been a hard couple of years for Casey," says a friend. "She's a single mom. But her family couldn't be more supportive. The baby is such a joy for everyone."

It's amazing that Bristol Palin’s pregnancy got so much MSM coverage while Toobin fathering a child out of wedlock received none (especially considering the fact he is married to another woman). On second thought, knowing the MSM, maybe it isn’t so amazing.

It's not surprising that these two liberal losers hooked up.

I hope the child survives the parent's incredible immaturity.

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin made ‘shockingly sexual’ proposition to well-known media figure, she claims

February 21st 2010

Jeffrey Toobin’s baby mama drama continues.

Even as he deals with his estranged mistress’ claim that he fathered her child, the married CNN legal analyst, 49, is denying accounts that his eye started wandering years ago.

Long before he hooked up with Casey Greenfield, 36, the fetching attorney whose father is famed CBS News analyst Jeff Greenfield, he is said to have made a play for a well-known media figure.

The woman, who met Toobin about 15 years ago, contends he hit on her repeatedly, using some shockingly sexual come-on lines.

“I was at a party in Washington,” the woman tells us. “He came up behind me and whispered in my ear ...”

This being a family newspaper, we can’t repeat what Toobin allegedly told the woman he’d like to do to her. But the woman recalls, “I didn’t even know who he was. I couldn’t believe my ears. It was so disgusting. At the time, I never even knew people did that.

“I said, ‘What did you just say?’ He just chuckled.”

Though she thought about walking away, she did entertain a conversation with Toobin.

“Later,” she says, “he followed me to my hotel room. He tried to invite himself in. He said, ‘You know you want it.’ I said, ‘No, actually I don’t.’”

The woman says Toobin “really chased me for a while. He called me at the office and left several sick messages.” Again, we can’t repeat them. Suffice it to say, he allegedly reiterated his first overture, only more graphically. Says the woman, “It was so vile.” She assures us the episode went nowhere.

Meanwhile, another source claims that Toobin definitely seemed to enjoy his research in 2008, when he visited the Miami Velvet swingers club while reporting a New Yorker profile about political consultant Roger Stone.

Toobin wrote in that piece about how he visited the sex club because that was where Stone said he’d first heard that former Gov. Eliot Spitzer had a hooker habit.

What Toobin didn’t write, according to a witness, was that he stayed at the club well after Stone had left.

“There were a couple of women there who recognized him,” says the source. “One said, loudly, ‘It’s Jeffrey Toobin from CNN!’” Even so, says the source, “I saw him checking out the group room, where naked couples were having sex on mattresses on the floor. He was standing on the periphery. He had his clothes on, but he seemed to be into watching.”

Toobin has been married to his Harvard sweetheart, Amy McIntosh, 51, since 1986. They have two teenage children. Last week, he was still wearing his wedding ring when he appeared in Manhattan Family Court to deal with custody and support issues related to the child he allegedly fathered with Greenfield last year.

Toobin’s lawyer, Patricia Ann Grant, responded: “We do not intend to dignify plainly fabricated claims with a response.”

Updated Feb 26 2010 – Jeff Toobin may have tried hitting on Judith Regan. This deduction was based on the fact that Regan was known to have gossiped about Toobin in the past. Some reporters added two and two together to deduce Regan and Toobin have some bad blood between them because of some thing.

Jun 12, 2009 ... CNN analyst Jeff Toobin thought Bristol Palin was “fair game.”

Toobin:

She has decided to become a public figure on this issue. She’s been on all the talk shows. So, I think a joke about Bristol Palin is actually fair game. You know, if you want to be private- fine, be private. But she’s not a private person anymore.”

CNN’s Toobin Complains Stupak Amendment ‘Marginalizes’ Aching Need for Abortions

CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted in a column in the November 23, 2009 edition of The New Yorker that “abortion, as the academics like to say, is being marginalized,” and even turned his ire on some in his left-wing camp, including President Obama. He accused “many modern pro-choice Democrats,” including the President, of ceding “the moral high ground” to pro-lifers.

Well, here’s what we’ve heard: while we still don’t know who the “well-known media figure” at the center of this is, nor what she said to her, specifically, we have heard from a tipster who asked to remain anonymous that multiple women alleged Toobin was into...

...anal sex and fisting, and had a bit of what could be deemed an “anal fixation,” though nobody reported any allegations of “rimming” or “salad tossing” or whatever you’re going to call it that will help me not explain exactly how that works. Specifics! Kind of.

VETERAN journos Michael Wolff and Jeffrey Toobin may want to pull an “Odd Couple” number and share an apartment. As we reported yesterday, the very married Wolff, 55, has clammed up over reports he’s been having an affair with gorgeous Victoria Floethe, 28, who works at his newser.com blog. Now, CNN legal correspondent and New Yorker writer Toobin, 48, who’s married, is staying mum about a report that he and sexy lawyer Casey Greenfield, 35, the Yale-educated daughter of CBS newsman Jeff Greenfield, have a relationship that “crossed the line.” Gawker.com pushed that claim further, saying that Casey is in an “advanced pregnancy” she’s been tracking on her Facebook profile. Calls to the usually accessible Toobin’s office and cellphone, and attempts to contact him through CNN and his literary agent, Esther “Lobster” Newberg, were fruitless. Casey did not return a message and e-mail to her law office or a message to her Facebook account. Jeff Greenfield didn’t return a call, either.

Amy McIntosh, the Education Department’s chief talent officer, who helped develop the system, said that her team would continue to explore ways to monitor the effectiveness of the city’s nearly 60,000 other public school teachers, but that for now the state tests were the only data on which to reliably base evaluations of them.

Amy McIntosh Must Come Clean!
Oh Amy McIntosh, the winner of the 2008 SBSB Unqualified To Be In Education award, when are you going to come clean? What not make public your lack of qualifications (here too!) and the conflict of interest you have with Time Warner in the case of your husband Jeffrey Toobin.

Why is this a big deal? In the upcoming Time Magazine, which just happens to be owned by Jeff’s employee, there is a love letter written about Washington DC school chief Syngman Rhee. Coincidently, Rhee happens to be one of Klein’s sycophants, and was recommended for the position by Der Chancellor himself. But that is not all there is from Time.

Jeffrey Toobin Faces Off With Ex-Mistress Casey Greenfield In Love Child Court Case: NYDN

Toobin, 49, appeared in Manhattan Family Court along with rumored former lover Casey Greenfield, the 36-year-old daughter of CBS News analyst Jeff Greenfield. Greenfield gave birth to a baby boy last spring, and though she wouldn’t say then, the Daily News reports she now claims Toobin is the father.

From the Daily News:

The ex-lovers barely spoke in the waiting area before joining their lawyers behind closed doors with a court referee to hash out custody and money issues.

Toobin, who glumly sat several rows away from Casey Greenfield before the hearing, is said to have privately admitted to fathering the child, believed to have been born last summer, sources said.

A friend of Greenfield’s said the outspoken Toobin has resisted putting his name on the infant’s birth certificate and hasn’t given his former lover the child support she’s requested.

Toobin has two children with wife Amy McIntosh, who he married in 1986. The Daily News reports he was wearing his wedding ring in court.

Maybe they should teach sex education to Yale law students and see if that works, before they start in on impressionable teen-agers.

CNN legal news analyst, Harvard grad and married guy Jeffry Toobin is squaring off against Yale Law School graduate Casey Greenfield - the daughter of columnist Jeff Greenfield - over a paternity suit invovling their child. Things are chilly. She won’t let him see the child. He’s not paying legal support. His wife is nowhere to be heard from. Her father won’t return calls.

Isn’t sex education supposed to be the answer for our 14 year olds?

Didn’t these people get sex education before they went to Ivy League law schools?

Also, it’s interesting how poorly watched CNN must be inasumuch as this is the best kept scandal in media history.

I agree! It’s been rough for her? What about his wife and two other children?

Why, oh why do women fall for the old “I am going to leave my wife for you” baloney?

He is a cad, and Casey is a fool. Her son is the only innocent party in their sordid little mess.

>>Her behavior in no way excuses his behavior.<<

That is correct.
But women used to have more respect for themselves than to sleep with a married guy and more respect for the ‘sisterhood’ than to sleep with a sister’s husband.

Sorry, we reap what we sow. I have NO sympathy for her. Only her child.

always has hasn't it?

i’m a half century now..plus some...i’ve watched young women believe married men and their lies a long time...i'd wage at least 1/4-1/3 of women still unmarried after 28 or so will likely dally with a married man historically

i think women who really attach to married men don't want a full commitment sub consciously

folks generally go after what they end up with on purpose if they truly want it

you want a husband, family and picket fence truly then you will seek a proper more ready mate

you pick a married man and you probably have daddy didn't see me issues

i’ll lecture on men(dogs) later...this Toobin is so typical of lefties who project altruism but do nothing personally that comes at a real price

on a side note...a 70 yer old buddy of mine whose wife quit having sex 25 years ago ..for whatever reason...it wasn't physical....he tells me if you cheat then it should be with another married woman so she has something to lose too...his weekly lover of many years is a lawyer lady in a lawyer-lawyer marriage whose husband ignores her and travels all week...if Toobin had to cheat he should have used some discretion like that

for the record...I don't cheat...don't want to break my wife's heart nor screw up my kids...it's a character issue when it's boiled down....men are what they are by nature...God gives us a choice
