D.C. Madam Dead

 

Madam Deborah Jeane Palfery was found dead in her Tarpon Springs mobile home. Police are claiming the death to be a suicide with several hand written notes being found in the home.

The D.C. Madam operated a prostitution and escort ring that catered to over 15,000 clients in the Washington DC area, many of whom were high level public servants, including Sen. David Vitter.

Only a few ‘big names’ from her client list have ever been released. The coroner will be determining the actual cause of death. Palfery had been convicted of money laundering and was awaiting sentencing.

  This sucks  
 
This woman was facing 55 years for setting up a safer environment for these women to earn money than working on the streets. Someone on ShortNews put up a quote once that makes perfect sense: "It's illegal to sell something that's perfectly legal to give away."

Prostitution should be legal, even more so that Weed. If legal and controlled by government entities there would be less tax money spent on prosecuting prostitution related crime, less transmission of disease, more tax dollars for our crap economy, and most likely fewer murders and beatings of prostitutes because of the controlled environment.

  Do any of you really believe it was suicide?  
 
You might want to read this from an "unapproved" source.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/...

My guess, CIA or NSA. This may go as high as Dick Cheney trying to cover his ass from the disclosure she could have cut loose with. She predicted she would be "suicided" several times as long ago as 15 years in a government attempt to cover up what she knew. Every conspiracy theory in the past 8 years has already come true. I have no reason to doubt her.

  "unapproved" indeed  
 
I've nothing against prisonplanet/infowars/truthnews, and they provide a lot of great links, however the journalist Paul Watson, as well as his brother Steve, are Alex Jones' payroll journalists He has the most slanted and consistent bias of any journalist out there.

  Not Her Mobile Home  
 
"....The body of Deborah Jeane Palfrey was found in a shed near her mother's home about 20 miles northwest of Tampa...."

As for the "why", well duh, some pretty damn "tell-all" memoirs have been known to be written while serving time in prison. I'de say someone got nervous about that. I don't see this woman being scared to be locked up, considering many women in prison, I would think, would see her as a person to look 'to', being who she was.

  About the unapproved source  
 
I was surprised to see that even huffingtonpost quoted prisonplanet.
