NEW YORK, May 9 (UPI) -- A legal secretary said she was fired from a Washington law firm after it was revealed she worked for the so-called D.C. Madam.
Akin Gump Strauss Hauer Feld LLP reportedly said the woman was fired because she did not tell the firm about her part-time job and that they didn't know she worked for Deborah Jeane Palfrey, who has been indicted on federal racketeering charges for allegedly running a prostitution service.
"They certainly knew I had a part-time job," the woman told "Inside Edition, saying the firm knew of other part-time jobs that "were based on my appearance. They weren't any different than what I did for Pamela Martin (Palfrey's firm) and they knew about both of those jobs."
The woman, wanting to remain unidentified, said she left Palfrey's escort service last year and never expected her life to be revealed on "20/20" Friday. In that report her name was not used but she was identified as working for Akin Gump.
The woman said she took the job to earn extra money.
"How would I go and apply for a job right now? You know people can put two and two together," she said.
