In what authorities are calling an apparent suicide, DC Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey may have provided her list of Capitol-famous clients one last bit of needed relief. Palfrey, 52, was found dead in mother’s Tarpon Springs, Florida home today. She’s the hooker boss whose little black book contained the phone numbers of Bush foreign aid administrator Randall Tobias (he resigned) and married Louisiana Senator David Vitter (he didn’t). Palfrey gave a list of 10,000 other names to ABC news just before a judge ordered her not to release them. She claimed to have 46 pounds of phone records with names including “a Bush Administration economist, the head of a conservative think tank, a prominent CEO, several lobbyists, and a handful of military officials,” according to ABC. On Tuesday, she was convicted of money laundering, using the mail for illegal purposes, and racketeering. She had not yet been sentenced. [My Fox Orlando via HuffPo]
