Will the DC Madam story be the next shoe to drop in the continuing saga of Ted Cruz, America’s first Canadian-born Presidential candidate?
Montgomery Blair Sibley – an ex-lawyer in Washington DC – has asked the Supreme Court to allow him to release phone records of an infamous owner of a DC escort agency, Deborah Jeane Palfrey because he claims it will have an impact on the current presidential election cycle.
In 2008, Palfrey was convicted of racketeering and money laundering. Rather than face a 55-year sentence, she hanged herself.
Palfrey’s escorts charges as much as $300 per hour. Palfrey appeared on ABC’s 20/20 on May 4, 2007 and said she had between 10 and 15,000 phone numbers of clients.
Two months later, Palfrey supposedly released all of her phone records for public viewing – records kept by her attorney, Blair Sibley.
In January, Sibley discovered that there are 815 records that contain names, addresses, and Social Security numbers of Verizon Wireless customers that now have importance in the ongoing presidential primary contest, however since 2007, Sibley had been under a restraining order not to disseminate them, or other escort service records he may hold.
Sibley tried to file a motion to modify the restraining order in Federal Court in D.C, but the chief judge refused to even let the clerk of the court to file the motion.
Subsequently, after an allegation of sexual misconduct, the judge resigned
Sibley now is attempting to appeal to the DC Court of Appears and then the Supreme Court if needed, but getting that done in the next 60 days – to squeeze it in before the Republican national convention – costs money and so he is seeking $25,000 in a GoFundMe campaign: www.gofundme.com/DCMadam.
The most intriguing part of Sibley’s latest filing is this:
“… delay by this court … will intentionally favor one presidential candidate over others by protecting that candidate from the release of the D.C. madam phone records, which … are relevant to this election cycle.”
Well, DC radio talk show guy, Thom Hartmann, chimed in on this today:
