The attorney for the famed “D.C. Madam,” Deborah Jeane Palfrey, says her records should be released because they could impact the presidential election.
The Washington Post reports that attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley is challenging restraining orders that have blocked him from releasing information about Palfrey’s former clients. U.S. Sen. David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, is the only politician to have publicly been linked to the escort ring, after his phone number was found among Palfrey’s records in 2007. Palfrey committed suicide in 2008.
Sibley, citing the restraining orders, isn’t revealing specific information about the records he wants released, but according to WTOP they include “815 names and 40 escort agency records.”
