On May 1, 2007, I had the opportunity to interview legendary former NYPD detective James Rothstein over the topic of elite and intelligence-connected sex rings in Washington, D.C. I asked Rothstein if Deborah Jeane Palfrey (a.k.a. the D.C. Madam) and her Pamela Martin and Associates could be considered a sex ring connected to the power elite and the intelligence community meant to compromise important political figures. James Rothstein not only answered yes, but also made it clear that the D.C. Madam’s outfit could not exist in Washington, D.C. unless it was a tool of elites and dark factions in the intelligence community (Rothstein, no pagination). This got me looking for connections. However, it was hard for me to connect dots when Palfrey was being so tight-lipped.
However, Palfrey’s interview with The Smoking Gun shown that even the tightest lips can sometimes get a little loose. In this interview, Palfrey speculated:
that she may have come to the attention of federal agents because her operation had somehow intersected with a more high profile case, like that of convicted ex-congressman Randy “Duke” Cunningham. (No pagination)
