D.C. madam may release client list

WASHINGTON, March 2 (UPI) -- A California woman charged with running a prostitution service in the Washington area is threatening to sell her client list to raise money for her defense.

Deborah Palfrey, 50, who did business in Washington under the name Pamela Martin and Associates, was indicted on federal racketeering charges Thursday for running a high-end call-girl service, The Washington Post reported.

An affidavit filed in federal court says Palfrey's service dispatched college-educated women in their 20s to male clients who paid $275 to $300 per encounter.

The girls allegedly kept half the fees and sent the other half to Palfrey in the form of money orders.

On a Web site seeking donations for her legal fund, Palfrey said she is thinking about selling her phone records, including the numbers of some 10,000 clients in the Washington area.

The U.S. attorney's office in the District of Columbia says it has no comment on the client list or the possibility that Palfrey might make it public.
