20/20 falls short of expectations

I feel like we were led to believe by multiple sources that this episode was going to shine new light onto the situation. But it was the same info that ABC has already been reporting on. It was sort of moving to see her speak for herself, I was really counting on seeing her former employees- er… ‘sub-contractors’ speak out. I guess they’d risk losing their current jobs if they did so.

I’m sure glad that we’re keeping prostitution illegal so that when women try to get other jobs such as legal secretaries we can ridicule and suspend them.

  1. Well, if you read closely you will see that the legal secretary (actually a paralegal I believe)…

    a. was not supposed to have any other job. it’s a rule at the company, no outside jobs

    b. was taking prostitution calls at work

    c. Offered to go into business with Palfrey by taking calls at the law firm 4 to 5 nights a week. That puts the law firm in the position of having it’s resources used to pimp and pander and that is pretty much a no no.

  2. I don’t disagree with any of your points.

    The fact that this was exposed in the context of the Palfrey scandal and that action was taken in that context (not in the context of poor job performance) and the fact that the escort business has been shut down for 9 months so she was not taking any of those calls recently- suggests that this is more a result of the scandal than of company protocol.

  3. It could have been 9 years ago. No law firm is going to keep someone who tried to set up a criminal enterprise on the premises.
