Really, you can’t make this stuff up

From Virginia McCabe’s story in today’s Atlantic Daily Sentinel:

City Councilman Caught on Tape By VIRGINIA McCABE Published Nov. 27, 2006 Somebody has secretly filmed the private moments of at least two Atlantic City Councilman. On Monday, a DVD and letter were given to the Atlantic Daily Sentinel. The DVD shows a video of an Atlantic City Councilman engaged in oral sex with a woman who takes money from him before performing the acts. A letter contained in the envelope claims she is a 16-year old prostitute. The letter also states that another tape is on the way that shows another councilman using illegal drugs. The Atlantic Daily Sentinel is not revealing the name of the councilman until all reasonable attempts to contact him for comment are completed. His identity is expected to be revealed on The Zone – News Talk 1400 AM at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 28. The councilman had his city hall identification badge attached to his jacket, which he wore throughout most of the sex acts. In the tape, the councilman is in what appears to be a seedy motel room. He begins deeply kissing a pudgy white woman with very long dark brown hair. The councilman sits down in a chair while the woman is talking. He takes his wallet out of his back pocket, takes money out and hands it to the woman. She appears to make change and hands him some of the money back. She then takes him by the hand and leads him to the bed. No Condom is used. The woman slides the councilman’s pants down and begins to massage his sexual organs. She then slides his underwear down and begins to perform oral sex on him. His face is clearly visible throughout the sex act. He switches between laying down and sitting up. He grasps the woman’s head for a period of time while she is performing oral sex on him. The woman then pulls his pants all the way down. She kneels on the floor in front of him and continues to perform oral sex on him. He leans up, takes off his jacket and tosses it on the chair. When the woman finished, the couple began kissing again. She climbs on top of him and they continue to kiss. The woman then puts her shirt back on and the councilman stood up and got dressed. The end of the video shows the councilman drinking a fluid out of a glass, grinning and smiling. The origin of the tape is unknown. A reporter received a phone call in the afternoon on Monday. The source of the tape identified himself as “Tim.” He said he had a video of an elected official having sex with a 16-year-old white prostitute. When asked if he had audio and video, he said he would provide the video tape first and the audio tape at another time. The man would not identify himself. He would not identify the source of the video. He asked to meet with the reporter to hand it over. He suggested a location in the city, which the reporter rejected. The reporter met with the man on the corner of Boston and Atlantic avenues at 2:45 p.m., on Monday. He was dressed in a dark blue Navy style coat, black pants and a hood. He wore overly large glasses and appeared to have false facial hair attached to his chin and above his lip. When he took a yellow padded mailing envelop out of his pocket. The reporter noted that he was wearing surgical gloves. He grunted a response to being called “Tim,” said nothing, handed over the tape and left the area. His direction is unknown. Inside the yellow mailer was a DVD and a typewritten letter. READ THE LETTER ABOVE RIGHT. The envelope had a white label on the front with a typed address of WOND Radio and Attention: Virginia McCabe. There is no way to substantiate the contents of the letter that state the woman in the video is a 16-year old girl or that she was a prostitute. There is no way to tell when the video was made. There is also no way to substantiate that the councilman had picked the woman up in Atlantic City, in a city owned vehicle. The DVD was taken to NBC-40 News Director Harvey Cox and his technical staff for review and analysis. They determined that the video was shot from a camera that was stationary. In the video, the woman’s face is obscured by blurred dots, however, after a frame-by-frame analysis, a still photo of the woman’s face was captured. Her face is fully visible. The video had been edited, parts appear to have been cut out after the sex acts. Cox opined that the video had been a VHS copy that was copied onto the DVD that was given to the Atlantic Daily Sentinel. NBC 40 has a copy of the video and Cox said he plans to have a reporter meet with the councilman for a response and would later air the video. Letter Delivered with the DVD The Name of the Councilman has been deleted until the Atlantic Daily Sentinel makes all resonable attempts to seek a response from the subject of the video. Contact Virginia McCabe Cell Phone: 609-404-0362 Verbatim To Whom it May Concern: (Name deleted) picked up a “16 year old white female prostitute” on Morris and Atlantic Avenues during the evening hours of mid November 2006 in Atlantic City. he drove the “16 year old white female prostitute” out of town to a hotel in his city council assigned vehicle. (Name deleted) paid the “16 year old white female prostitute” to perform various oral sex acts on him. (Name deleted) was wearing his city indentification badge throughout the entire sexual act. Also, note during the video the “16 year old white female prostitute” was smoking cigarettes — so much for his ANTI SMOKING STANCE. There are questions of whether the City of Atlantic City could be liable because he picked up the 16 year old white female prostitute in his city issued vehicle and acts were performed on him while wearing his city identification badge. People may ask; is this sanctioned by the city of Atlantic City? Also we have a video of another council person in Atlantic City using illegal drugs. We will be revealing this video in the very near future.
