Just got back from Politics with a Punch and I nearly fell out of my seat several times!
The Canal Street Madam dropped some bombshells! Eric Paulsen spent the whole time trying to coax her into giving up information. She slipped out a few things... Also, anyone who doubts her veracity or says she's a liar is completely wrong. She's got her details straight and when she explains the inner workings of her (VERY EXTENSIVE) operation, she's very nuanced. Canal Street was just one of the houses she ran, another was on Garfield... Many of the hookers were from Europe... I think that some people have only heard her explanations secondhand (with a lot being lost) and that's why some people thing she's unreliable.
Vitter has fucked so many hookers, you need more than your fingers and your toes to count them all... When asked whether or not he lied, Jeanette started her response by saying, "He chose his words very carefully..."
Tidmore went through a brief summary of the whores he's confirmed. There were actually TWO Wendy Cortezes... Who were also friends... Tidmore's Wendy Cortez lives in Texas. The Times-Pic found the other Wendy Cortez.
What shocked me is how much Jeanette Maier cares about the city. She's seen up close how much the local citizenry have been fucked by their politicians. She was the mistress of a former mayor (who will be named soon) and she asked him at the end of a night where all the roads are all screwed up and never got fixed. He replied, "I got your roads right here," and he shot himself up with heroin...
I'm exhausted and I've got work tomorrow, but I have one thing to say in closing:
