NAVY LT COMMANDER - INSTRUCTOR
AT ANNAPOLIS - PART-TIME PROSTITUTE FOR
"D.C. MADAM," MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM
LEARNED - DEBORAH JEANE PALFREY'S LAWYER
SAYS LARGE NUMBER OF CALLS TO "SERVICE"
CAME FROM PENTAGON AND NEARBY HOTEL
WOULD BRASS BE UNINTERESTED IN OFFICER'S
ID IF SHE WAS A "HE?" - ABC NEWS
FIVE OFFICER NAMES ON "CLIENT LIST"
The Navy is faced with a unique problem. What to do
with a female officer - reportedly an instructor at the Naval Academy
- who has worked as a part-time prostitute for infamous "D.C. Madam"
Deborah Jeane Palfrey?
The officer, a lieutenant commander, MilitaryCorruption.com
has learned, is not some desperate, low-ranking enlisted woman, trying
to make ends meet by moon-lighting as a whore. In fact, flamboyant attorney
Montgomery Blair Sibley says the female brass hat contacted Palfrey as
recently as October "wanting to go back to work because she had been
on hiatus for a while."
The lawyer declined to identify the woman and we hear that the Pentagon
is highly reluctant to do anything about the female officer because of
"political correctness." If the ranking officer had been a male,
we can only guess that he would have been identified and up for court-martial
ABC NEWS has confirmed that at least five
male officers were "clients" of the call-girl ring.
"HE'S AN UNPLEASANT MAN,"
THE "D.C. MADAM" TELLS ABC NEWS
One former Navy commander, "shock and awe"
military strategist Harlan Ullman, has already been outed in the growing
scandal. The sour-faced "mover and shaker" writes a column for
the Washington TIMES. Palfrey has a particular
dislike for Ullman, who's denied he patronized the girls, saying she received
several complaints from her hookers about the man's alleged behavior.
"He's an unpleasant man" the madam sniffed, as she spoke with
ABC NEWS investigative reporter Brian Ross.
Complicating any possible cover-up, "many" calls were made to
Palfrey's service from the Pentagon as well as the Ritz-Carlton Hotel
nearby. Most of those customers can be safely considered military officers,
It may be a break for the Pentagon customers, who can be traced to the
prostitutes by their puzzle palace phone numbers, that one of the actual
hookers is a uniformed officer at the Naval Academy. Defense lawyers would
be sure to point out a gender-based double-standard if the military sought
to court-martial the male clients but ignore an active-duty female officer
"turning tricks" on the side.
Therefore, no charges may be lodged against any military members as a
way of hoping the embarrassing story will soon "go away." We
guess it won't. At least to the up to 250,000 daily readers of MilitaryCorruption.com
throughout the armed forces around the world. Our confidential informants
back in the Beltway will be sure to keep us - and you - informed.
PENTAGON MAY SEEK TO "COVER-UP"
BUT SUCCESS THERE UNCERTAIN
Palfrey is trying to avoid jail after being charged
with running a Washington D.C. - based prostitution ring and engaging
in money laundering and racketeering. The 51 year-old "madam"
says she forbid her girls to actually engage in sex and ran the operation
via telephone from her mansion in Vallejo, California.
According to court papers, Palfrey's enterprise consisted of more than
130 prostitutes, who split the proceeds from their encounters with their
"madam" via money order. Investigators say Palfrey could have
hauled in as much as $2 million a year in client fees.
Like the three monkeys - blind, deaf and dumb - who "see, hear and
speak no evil," The Pentagon brass hats would like this mess to just
"go away." But if a news media outlet, say MilitaryCorruption.com,
starts listing some of the officers' names (not that we would do such
a thing) then, Defense Secretary Robert Gates would be faced with a dicey
With the present world situation being what it is - the war on terror
and high emphasis on "homeland security" - it doesn't take a
rocket scientist to figure out military officers - some of them perhaps
reaching up to flag rank - patronizing prostitutes would cast serious
doubt on their ability to hold security clearances. To say nothing of
putting our nation's safety in jeopardy.
The question now is, will there be a genuine, comprehensive investigation,
or will the scandal be successfully swept under the rug? Stay tuned.
