Clean Sweep for Palfrey Prosecutors

A jury in Washington, D.C. federal court has found “D.C. Madam” Deborah Palfrey guilty of all the racketeering and money laundering charges arising from her proprietorship of a high-end fuck-for-money operation in the guise of an escort service.

All things considered, this was a deeply disappointing case. I’d expected dozens of revelations regarding Palfrey’s high powered clientèle, but in the end all we really got was Bible-thumping hypocrite and all-around right wing nutburger Sen. David Vitter (R-La). And he’s still in office.

The case is still a history maker in that this was the first time D.C. authorities used federal racketeering statutes to prosecute prostitution, but that’s some pretty boring history.
