    On Monday, the former lawyer of the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey—known as the “D.C. Madam”—released some names of the government agencies, companies, and groups that purportedly called Palfrey’s escort service between 2000 and 2006. In the court filing, lawyer Montgomery Blair Sibley listed 174 entities that had dialed the service, Pamela Martin & Associates. The roster includes the FBI, State Department, Department of Commerce, Department of Health and Human Services, IRS, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and U.S. Coast Guard. So far, no names of specific individuals from this list of 174 have been released. (Since February, Sibley has...

    A lawyer who once represented the woman known as the "DC Madam" circulated documents Monday that he says contain the names of 174 government entities and businesses that were among the sources of phone calls to his former client. Montgomery Blair Sibley has been promising that the phone records he has could affect the 2016 presidential election, but the papers he emailed to the media this week did not contain any obvious connections to the campaigns. There was also no evidence of any wrongdoing on the part of the agencies or companies whose names he released. "I am not releasing...

    A former attorney for "D.C. madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey kicked off a viral news speculation frenzy last week, claiming he possesses previously unreleased phone records that are "very relevant" to the presidential election and that he's prepared to risk jail to release them. Conversations with people close to the high-profile escort case corroborate some claims from Montgomery Blair Sibley about the nature of documents he says he possesses but have added uncertainty as to whether a presidential candidate actually is identified. Sibley says he has two sets of records that he wants court permission to release: a set of raw...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday denied a request from a lawyer who once represented a woman known as the "DC Madam" to release records from her famous escort service. Those records include such sensitive information as customer names, Social Security numbers and addresses— information the lawyer, Montgomery Blair Sibley, has said could affect the 2016 presidential election.

    No matter how many times Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz refutes claims he cheated on his wife, Heidi, the National Enquirer seems determined to prove the White House candidate is a philanderer. The Texas senator, however, has vehemently denied the allegations, saying that is was “garbage” fabricated by Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign. When Deborah Palfrey, a Washington, D.C., madam, mysteriously died, she supposedly left behind a “black book” that implicates Cruz, according to National Enquirer. There are 15,000 clients named in the book, and Cruz is apparently one of them, according to the publication. The madam’s clients would pay...

  • Deborah Jean Palfrey (aka the DC Madam) has released the phone records.

    Why the Records are Being Publically Released I have reason to believe the disk - containing a full set of the telephone records for the 13 year operational history of “Pamela Martin & Associates” - already has been pirated. Despite our very best intentions to maintain control of the information, our efforts seemingly have been for naught. I am concerned about manipulation of the database with false and misleading information. Even though such falsifications can be refuted in time by comparing an altered copy with the original, my attorney, Mr. Sibley and I fear that in the intervening time period,...
  • Federal Judge Makes Illegal Ruling That D.C. Madam Can Distribute Phone Records

    Judge Gladys Kessler, a U.S. District Court judge, made an illegal ruling in the DC madam case. Hmmm, a judge making an illegal ruling ... what else is new. It is, in fact, against the law for the madam to release the personal information of her clients. Especially since she maintains that her business was legitimate, but the law doesn't apply to Judge Gladys Kessler.

    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...

    During several weeks of calls to possible clients of the woman dubbed the D.C. Madam, Brian Ross of ABC confirmed that some fairly important people had used her escort service. But when he put together last night's segment for "20/20," the network's chief investigative reporter decided against outing anyone beyond the two people who already had been identified. "They just weren't newsworthy enough," ABC's Brian Ross said of the names. (By Donna Svennevik -- Abc) "Their names won't mean anything to our audience," Ross said in an interview. "They just weren't newsworthy enough." Instead, he said, "what we really wanted...

    Tucker Carlson is a self-described libertarian who mentioned more than once this morning that in he has in the past supported fellow libertarian Ron Paul for president. Little wonder, then, that Carlson takes a live-and-let-love attitude toward the escort-service scandal that is threatening to rock Washington. For those who have not been following the case, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called "DC Madam," owner of an escort agency, turned her clients' phone numbers over to ABC. On tomorrow's "20/20," ABC is apparently planning to disclose the names of some of those clients, who are reported to include Bush administration officials, prominent...
