Back in 2009, I had a number of e-mail exchanges with Montgomery Sibley, the author of a then new book entitled "Why Just Her, the Judicial Lynching of the D.C. Madam" that looked at the legal/judicial system as it was brought to bear on Deborah Jeanne Palfrey (Sibley sent me a complimentary copy of the book that prompted me to write this post). Indeed, Sibley subsequently did a guest post on this blog found here. Now, Sibley plans on releasing Palfrey's client list as reported by Rachel Maddow who says that it will have a cataclysmic impact on the 2016 presidential race. Here are excerpts of a reprise of what Maddow covered:
We recently brought you a story by Rachel Maddow regarding the infamous D.C. Madam and her list of clientele — hundreds of Washington D.C. insiders who partook of her “services” by hiring prostitutes from her. Rachel had broken the story that the Madam’s lawyer, who still has the original list, is now threatening to release the entire thing despite a gag order requiring him to keep it secret.
The lawyer has GUARANTEED that the list will come out, it will have information in it that will upset the 2016 election in a severe way by potentially swaying the entire nation away from one candidate — and he intends to make the information public even if he is arrested or otherwise detained. Even if he is dead or incapacitated the list WILL be released via a “dead man switch.”
The way it was explained is that if the lawyer is somehow incapacitated for more than 72 hours, the list will automatically start being distributed to journalists around the world from one of 4 different secret locations in which it’s currently stored. Every day he does a process to reset the 72-hour timer, as of now, to prevent it from mailing out before he is ready.
This is seriously starting to read, like some kind of spy novel. We have a list of names, one of which will completely rewrite the 2016 election if made known, and it’s now on a timer that the owner is using to safeguard himself from potential harm.
I don't know who is on the list, although I can make conjectures that may or may not prove true. Here is a clip of Rachel Maddow's coverage:
