The D.C. Madam’s Final Words
Washington, D.C. - On May 1, 2009, the first anniversary of her death, Montgomery Blair Sibley will release his 600 page book entitled: “Why Just Her – The Judicial Lynching of the D.C. Madam, Deborah Jeane Palfrey”. The book identifies the external and internal demons that drove Jeane from an initially defiant woman willing to fight the government to a woman so despairing as to take her own life prior to sentencing upon her conviction for Prostitution Racketeering and Money Laundering.
Starting with the execution of a search warrant on her home and seizure warrants for her bank accounts in October 2006, her firing of three attorneys, the court-ordered suppression of her client list, the trial, verdict and through to her death on May 1, 2008, “Why Just Her” traces Jeane’s final 20 months as the judicial system time and again failed to live up to its promise to insure “justice”. Instead, unwittingly sitting atop a list of the most powerful men in the world, that system made sure that Jeane’s story would never be fully told.
Drawing on over 2,500 emails from and to Jeane from a wide variety of individuals along with his singular knowledge of what transpired in Jeane’s life during those last 20 months, Jeane’s attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley has written her heartbreaking story as no one else could.
While Court orders presently prevent Mr. Sibley from releasing the names of heretofore unknown public-figure clients of Jeane’s escort service, the Court-ordered suppression of those significant names – which were identified through subpoenas but not publically revealed – is detailed and is indeed the larger and much more important story.
That story speaks to the arrogance of power of those within the “Washington Beltway” from having the rules that govern us applied to them.
