Death of 'D.C. Madam' Becomes Rich Ground for Conspiracy Theory
Thursday, May 01, 2008
By Greg Simmons
Hustler magazine publisher and free-speech advocate Larry Flynt -- one of Palfrey's staunchest advocates -- was the strongest voice forwarding the notion that Palfrey's death was not by her own hands.......Flynt was an integral part in keeping Palfrey's story public and worked with her and investigative reporter Dan Moldea to break the story that the phone number of Sen. David Vitter, R-La., was among those numbers in Palfrey's client list. Flynt targeted Vitter because he had campaigned for office on a family-values platform.
The building manager, who did not want to show his face, talked with Palfrey Monday before she left for her mother's in Tarpon Springs. He strongly believes Palfrey's death was not a suicide.
Palfrey’s building manager said she often told him she believed she was being followed and he thinks there may have been some former clients of her escort service who wanted her dead.
"She insinuated that there is a contract out for her and I fully believe they succeeded," her building manager said.
In a February e-mail to federal prosecutors, Palfrey threatened to make "life miserable for those who used her escort agency's services," court records show.
While Palfrey has not specifically mentioned any individuals or Washington power brokers as clients, on Thursday the political newsletter The Hotline wrote, "A lawyer for an indicted D.C. madam is trying to drag Dick Morris into a juicy case that may involve thousands of former clients" and that when he was a Clinton adviser, Morris' "toe-sucking sessions with a professional call girl" were revealed. Though Morris "admitted publicly that he hired prostitutes from more than one agency, it's unclear whether he has any connection."
The Hotline went on to say Palfrey's attorney served a subpoena on Morris to "give a deposition on information, if any, he may have about the call-girl service."
Gladys Kessler is an United States District Court Judge for the District of Columbia. She was nominated to the court by President Clinton, a Democrat, and is known as one of the most liberal judges in the D.D.C. Judge Kessler was appointed to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in July 1994.
U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler placed a temporary restraining order on Palfrey and her civil attorney, prohibiting them from sharing additional phone records with news organizations or the public.

If you believe Palfrey killed herself, I've got some property on the moon you may be interested in....
It is painfully obvious that she was silenced to keep the Washington insiders from being named prior to her sentencing. Pathetic bastards!

Police in Tarpon Springs, Florida, released Palfrey's suicide notes Monday, along with autopsy results confirming her cause of death as a suicide. Her mother and sister confirmed the notes' authenticity, police said.
"I cannot live the next 6 to 8 years behind bars for what you and I have both come to regard as this 'modern-day lynching' only to come out of prison in my late 50s a broken, penniless and very much alone woman," she wrote.
The front of the note was marked "Do not revive (DNR). Do not feed under any circumstance."
"I'm looking at 55 years in a federal penitentiary, and at my age, that is virtually a life sentence," Palfrey told CNN Radio's Ninette Sosa in March. "Realistically, we estimate between eight and 15 years. I'm also looking at the complete forfeiture of my entire life savings and work."
Palfrey’s hi-rise apartment manager in Florida says he saw Palfrey only days before her death when she told him a contract may be out on her life. Additionally, she made arrangements to secure her apartment for the next six years– the approximate time she expected to be in prison–seemingly pointing to the idea that she expected to stay alive.
Jones points out the numerous statements Palfrey made in refutation of suicide, as well as the criminology that women rarely hang themselves, generally preferring pills.
Geraldo and two co-hosts admit they agree with Alex Jones– that claims of Palfrey’s suicide are “stinky” and suspicious and that the case should be further investigated.
