Songs from the Site Meter: All roads lead to San Diego...


Site Meter--Some very curious hits recently, a kind of a "cluster"-effect. In my research into the Palfrey/DC Madam scandal, most all roads led to San Diego. The other area it went back to again and again wasn't exclusively geographical, but thematic and behavioral: lobbying in Washington D.C. by defense and intelligence contractors, and other lesser lights.

One recurrent theme in the research pointed to the abuse of minority-owned govt. contractors and laws created to favor them in the bidding process so as to facilitate business and economic activity within those communities. Instead, what sometimes happens is that a large contractor creates a dummy corporation masquerading as a minority-owned contractor and uses it to acquire more contracts than it's qualified to under federal law. That's right, it's illegal, especially when you're not rich and connected.


Suspect-A: Christopher D. Baker and his Shirlington Limo service which fits this model, although it could just as easily be a CIA front company, or even a hybrid of both. Baker's criminal rap-sheet is a whopping 61 pages long according to most sources, yet he continues to acquire multi-million dollar contracts from DHS, again and again, and even when someone like Rep. Louise Slaughter is openly questioning it during hearings and calling for investigations. Somehow, I think Baker's still doing fine under the new boss in the White House.

Suspect-B: ASRC Constructors, Inc., based in Alaska, and Inuit-owned...or at least that's what their paperworks states. This firm was mentioned-in-passing during the investigation and trial of former Alaskan Senator, Ted Stevens, for accepting gifts from--what else?--govt. contractors. Some are now claiming that Stevens was railroaded and that there was "prosecutorial misconduct." That's not out of the question, but that doesn't mean he's innocent either. Take it from someone who watched a guilty woman railroaded. "So what?" some might say. Ever heard of due process? What if you were being accused and you were innocent? Give that some thought...

There are other examples, other "suspects" in materials that I've seen from the DC Madam scandal, and there are probably others waiting to be found. The most stunning name I found in Palfrey's phone records cannot be named at this date and will only be familiar to a few: a war on terror suspect arrested shortly after the 9/11 attacks in the nation's capital. He was later released since the charges against him were dubious-at-best. Most bizarre--if this is the same individual--is that they were a Verizon engineer.

My best guess is that someone at Qualcomm saw the site and a few articles and went home to read more in the above hit. I began writing about the DC Madam in late April and early May of 2007. By the first week of June, she'd noticed these observations and contacted me.

What exactly would Wiley Rein want to know from this specific search? They seem to be concerned about the affairs and path of JeffreyA. Taylor. Hit the labels, and you'll see the connections run very deep indeed.
