On May 1, 2008, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, known in the mainstream press as the DC Madam, was reported to have hanged herself in a shed in the back yard of her mothers home. A suicide note was found. Palfrey’s note used a number of clichéd expressions, strangely including modern day lynching, a darkly ironic reference to her impending manner of death, and also apparently referring to the extremely selective enforcement - they tried to destroy her life, while sparing all of the politically powerful elite who used her services - that found her guilty in federal court of racketeering and money laundering in connection with her operation of an escort service that catered to Washington insiders. The trial’s verdict received little press coverage, and a scheduled Louisiana Senator David Vitter, who was admittedly one of her clients, was never subpoenaed. Palfrey was scheduled to be sentenced in late-July for her convictions. Among her reported clients were current GOP presidential contender John McCain, Senator Vitter, former AIDS Czar Randall Tobias - the scandal led to his resignation from his State Department position, Dick Morris, military strategist Harlan Ullman - creator of the concept of "shock and awe", and Vice President Dick Cheney. Then came the May 1st hanging. It was presented as a suicide from the first mention with no investigation. Like so many other stories with incriminating ties to the elite, it vanished from the headlines as quickly as it appeared. Palfrey's alleged fear of being sentenced to 6-8 years behind bars was supposedly the main reason for her suicide. However, this does not correlate with the expectations of the vast majority of legal analysts who expected Palfrey to receive a sentence of 2-3 years. Palfrey certainly knew this, since she graduated from Rollins College with a degree in criminal justice, and attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law. Just a few days before her death, Palfrey herself said that "she was preparing for federal prison. She believed that she would get time off of her sentence for good behavior. She also thought that she might buy a place in Germany one day," according to a Baltimore Sun report. Palfrey's supposed fear that she would be "penniless" upon leaving jail does not correlate with the fact that she was in line to make millions for a best-selling tell-all memoir that was in the pipeline, not to mention Hollywood movies, documentaries, speaking tours and TV guest appearances. Even the establishment media mouthpiece The Washington Post conceded that, "There would have been book deals, movies, forgiveness, and VIP tickets to charity balls," upon Palfrey's release. Palfrey KNEW that Hollywood movies and book deals were waiting to transform her into a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE for telling all. Palfrey would have probably spent two years in a virtual country club in exchange for living a life of luxury and never having to work another day for the rest of her life upon release, and SHE KNEW THAT! In 2007 Palfrey turned over years-long call lists to ABC News correspondent Brian Ross for his staff to verify for a story on ABC's 20/20. It was a story that ABC never aired. Could Brian Ross, now elevated in the ABC ranks, answer the most basic questions about the DC Madam story that never was? Mr. Ross may wonder himself if Palfrey’s death was self-inflicted or a torturous murder, but as long as he withholds the secrets of the lists, he’s probably safe from harm. Dick Cheney’s McLean, VA phone number, reported earlier, was summarily un-reported after the turnaround by ABC News. ABC anchor Sam Donaldson had also been a rumored client, along with a law partner of Rudy Giuliani, associates of Jack Abramoff and many more Pentagon, DC and corporate insiders on the list of over 10,000 numbers. According to close associates, there were more Democrats on Palfrey's list than Republicans. But after Cheney turned up on the list, the story, already on the ABC website and poised to run on 20/20, suddenly w

I found this on another board (Craigslist - Atlanta R & R). It may have been previously discussed, but it certainly appears to merit review and reconsideration.

I apologize in advance for violations of site rules, guidelines, or if I placed it in the wrong discussion area.

Wow. How did this slip through the big net?

On top of all of this, former NSA analyst and Navy intelligence officer Wayne Madsen said that one of the key motives behind the DC Madam's murder may have been the information her call girls picked up from Washington's top brass concerning foreknowledge and government complicity in the 9/11 attacks.

government complicity in the 9/11 attacks

Good catch.
