"DC Madam" Posts Phone Records Online
July 9, 7:01 PM
In a move that will certainly set into motion hundreds of bloggers and journalists eager to unearth the next Washington sex scandal, Deborah Jeane Palfrey, aka the "DC Madam," has posted 13 years worth of phone records on her website Monday afternoon. The records cover Palfrey's time as head of “Pamela Martin & Associates," a Washington, D.C.-based escort service. As Yeas & Nays noted last week, U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler recently lifted the temporary restraining order prohibiting Deborah Jeane Palfrey from releasing those telephone records.
During an interview with Yeas & Nays last Thursday, Palfrey indicated that she had "every intention" of releasing her records to the public, but the move to post them on her website so quickly was not anticipated by many.
"I have reason to believe the disk - containing a full set of the telephone records for the 13 year operational history of 'Pamela Martin & Associates' - already has been pirated," writes Palfrey. "Despite our very best intentions to maintain control of the information, our efforts seemingly have been for naught. I am concerned about manipulation of the database with false and misleading information. Even though such falsifications can be refuted in time by comparing an altered copy with the original, my attorney, Mr. Sibley and I fear that in the intervening time period, considerable damage can and will be done to the reputations of individual and entities with no connection to the business. Additionally, the overall validity of the records’ contents will be diminished when one false accusation after another begins to manifest. Therefore, to thwart any possible distorted version and to ensure the integrity of the information, the records – in their entirety -- are available for downloading."
Palfrey doesn't think that sorting through the information will be easy. "It will take a small army of people skilled in computer and phone technology, investigation as well as factual knowledge regarding the significance OR non-significance of identified persons. No one individual or entity will be able to connect all of the dots. The overall endeavor easily could take many months, if not years to research and report conscientiously."
In the meantime, Washington will be nervously waiting...
