Nothing To See Here…

The Bushies are acting like they have something to hide:

Federal prosecutors want to gag an indicted former Washington, D.C. madam who has recently threatened to go public with details about her former customers. In a motion filed Monday in U.S. District Court, investigators are seeking a protective order covering discovery material to be provided to Deborah Palfrey and her lawyers. Palfrey, 50, was indicted last week on racketeering and money laundering charges stemming from her operation of the Pamela Martin & Associates escort service, which closed last summer after 13 years in business. In their motion, a copy of which you’ll find below, government lawyers claim that some discovery documents contain “personal information” about Palfrey’s former johns and prostitutes that is “sensitive.” The prosecution filing does not detail the nature of this confidential information, though the identity of Palfrey’s D.C. customers would surely be cloaked if the protective order was signed by Judge Gladys Kessler. According to the prosecution motion, while Palfrey and her lawyers would be able to use the discovery material to help prepare a defense, they would not be allowed to disclose the documents to anyone else (nor use the material for any other purposes).

Republicans involved with prostitutes? Unpossible!

Of course, just as with the Wilkes/Foggo scandal, and GannonGate before it, if the gag order fails and Palfrey does name names, the media will bury it. It’s only newsworthy when Democrats get caught with their pants down.

    But enquiring minds want to know. Why, personally, I’m salaciously salivating even as we speak.

    It would be irresponsible not to speculate.
