      D.C. Madame to Sell 10,000 Phone Records of High-End
      Washington Clients

      Deborah J. Palfrey is unhappy. And, if you know who
      Deborah J. Palfrey is—and especially if you know her
      by Jeane—you probably don’t want her unhappy. From
      1993 until this past summer, Palfrey ran Pamela Martin
      and Associates, a “high-end adult fantasy firm which
      offered legal sexual and erotic services across the
      spectrum of adult sexual behavior,” according to a
      statement she put out today hoping to raise funds for
      her legal defense.

      The way she plans to raise those funds could
      reverberate through Washington’s power corridors. She
      is considering “selling the entire 46 pounds of
      detailed and itemized phone records for the 13 year
      period,” reports The Politico's Ryan Grim. In
      October, the Internal Revenue Service seized her
      assets; the sale of the records would fund her fight
      against the seizure.

      Palfrey released what she said were a sample of the
      records, which don’t include names, but do feature a
      number of Washington area exchanges.

      Her attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, said that
      prices have yet to be set for the data. “We don’t
      actually know that yet,” he said, “because we haven’t
      finished mining the data to identify the individuals.
      Obviously if Bill Clinton’s on the list that’s a
      different matter than you know, somebody nobody’s ever
      heard of before.”

      But, he said, chances are good that some interesting
      names will pop up. “Statistically, if you have 10,000
      people, and given the structure of this particular
      service, these weren’t people beckoning from car
      windows,” he said. “The escorts only responded to four
      and five star hotels or private residences. And so the
      landlines will show up on the private residences real quickly.”
