No longer live: the afterthoughts

I recorded the segment, and luckily so, as I had three more guests turn up at different times after the program finished. So I was able to watch it 4 times in total. I was astonished by the lack of detail- the segment seemed so bland after all the juicy news had been careening through the internet about Tobias. (Incidentally, Tobias’s creation of the anti-prostitution oath was not mentioned once.)

One of the things that struck us all was the way that Mr. Ross rattled off a few positions of high-ranking clients, and then assured us all that there were no really big names. No members of Congress; no administration officials…it left us all with a wry grin. Yeah, right.

One participant wondered if perhaps she had a special list of clients she wouldn’t be revealing, sort of an ace-in-the-hole.

Another participant pointed out what we all sensed: at the end, when they were discussing Brandi Britton, Palfrey made an interesting comment about how she must have something that Brandi didn’t have which allowed Brandi to commit suicide, saying that wouldn’t happen to her. The way it was said wasn’t very kind…leading us to speculate as to whether or not Brandi may have somehow pissed Palfrey off. Leading to more speculation abut how the case was initiated. Leading to more speculation…

More later.

  1. I think the multiple lobbyists on the phone list account for the many political figures who surely employed escorts from her firm.

    Wasn’t there some connection to this investigation that stemmed from the Abramoff scandal? Here are a couple links that relate to that, but I don’t think there is any evidence (made public at least) of a connection.
    Regardless, we know that many politicians don’t set these appt’s up for themselves, there is frequently a middle-man.
