Brian Ross Back-pedals on Statement About White House

Last week:

“There are thousands of names, tens of thousands of phone numbers, and there are people there at the Pentagon, lobbyists, others at the White House, prominent lawyers ā€” a long, long list.

But last night on “20/20,” Ross completely reversed course and said:

As usually is the case in Washington, much of it is dull. There are no members of Congress we can find in these phone numbers, no White House officials. Quite frankly, but for the few exceptions, most of the men on this list just aren’t newsworthy.

What accounts for that sudden shift? A week ago the White House was involved, but now they’re not? The last thing I want is anyone falsely accused of anything, but how did an extra week with the phone records lead Ross to conclude that people who he last week said were involved no longer aren’t? That’s just weird if you ask me.”

Of course there was somebody in the White House. By announcing in their teasers that they’ve got “…others in the White House,” wouldn’t you expect that somebody got concerned and made some calls? They ought to check out the calendars and corresponding phone records of all the lobbyists on that list. That would be extremely informative. I have no doubt that high-level politicians of all allegiances can be traced back to that agency and any of the other similar agencies in the DC region.

One of the theories that I’ve heard from successful women who’ve worked in the DC area is that it’s a very lucrative region because so many politicians spend half of their time there, away from their family and hometowns. People always feel more comfortable indulging when they’re away from home, plus the loneliness and high-stress job factors.

Very few women that I’ve ever met have had a lot of good things to say about their politician clients. They’re always high-maintenance and always want to pay as little as possible are common complaints that I’ve heard about them. Even so- you’d think that Palfrey would have been better off had she not insulted Ullman publicly on top of outing him as a client. Someone mused the other day about whether Palfrey was selectively choosing the most annoying clients to expose…

  1. Interesting. The men get to use women, illegally, and toss them aside like kleenex, and they get protected by the good old boys at ABC news.

    Meanwhile Brandy Britton, a Palfrey prostitute and mother of college-age kids, hangs herself.

    Prostitution is ALWAYS a losing proposition for women.

    Always.
