It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp

In the summer of 1989, I was serving as Assistant Secretary of Housing at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the first Bush Administration. The Secretary of Housing was Jack Kemp, formerly a Congressman from Buffalo. One of Kemp’s assistants approached me after a meeting, and told me that Kemp needed me to arrange for project-based certificates (subsidy) to be sent to a local housing agency in New York City, New York HDC.

I explained to the assistant that such an action would be in violation of the competitive process we had publicly committed to as a result of scandals related to steering of such subsidy during the Reagan Administration. In addition, because our project-based subsidy appropriation was spent, I was told that such an action would also be illegal, a violation of the Anti-Deficiency Act. I agreed to have my staff research the matter to see if we could find a legal avenue to achieve the same result.

A day or so later, the Secretary called me to his office. He was insistent that I send the certificates to New York HDC. I explained to him that this was an illegal award, a violation of the Anti-Deficiency Act. He said he did not care, to do it anyway.

The only way I can describe his demeanor was that of terror. It was almost as if his fear had replaced all ambition, judgment, discernment. I concluded that someone was blackmailing him.

After communicating my request for research to my staff, one of my deputies pulled me aside and said that folks who worked on Kemp’s campaign staff who he absolutely trusted had confided in him that Kemp’s sexual activities were far worse than merely bi-sexual rumors and to be very careful. I assumed that he was referring to pedophilia.

I then went to Chicago for a meeting with one of our regional headquarters. I got a call from one of my deputies. Several of my deputies and staff had been required to help someone in Kemp’s office arrange a funding commitment. That person then confirmed the subsidy awards by phone with New York HCD. My staff informed me that the funds were for one of Andrew Cuomo‘s projects in New York. I called the General Counsel’s office and was able to persuade them to reverse the action.

Thus ended my first experience in government with the long-standing and close connection between sex and mortgage fraud.

Jack Kemp: 1935 – 2009
(3 May 09)


  1. From ‘The Fall Of Norfolk” on web at:
    “…With few exceptions, if you look under ‘escort service’ in the
    Yellow Pages in almost every major city across the US
    (Albuquerque, Frisco, NYC, wherever) you see the exact same full
    and half page ads. These ads are made to look like they are
    competing, they are not. All one company. And all this, the entire
    nation run out of Virginia Beach by some guy called Demming.
    There was a tangential case against Demming prosecuted on Granby
    Street. It was obviously showmanship. But what did become clear
    is that in no conceivable manner could that organization ever afford
    coast to coast full and half page advertising. What is going on? It
    became clear that the advertising is a ‘trade out’. R.R. Donnelly,
    the Yellow Pages, can easily afford to give out that space for little or
    nothing. So it becomes a joke…: “Who is the R.R Donnelley
    Company? The phone company. So who is the biggest pimp in the
    United States. The National Security Agency of course…!” True
    enough, but much is lost in the simplification. The New York
    Times owns the Virginian Pilot. The Virginian Pilot owns the little
    free distribution Port Folio. It was the Port Folio that did a piece
    after the ‘soft’ prosecution of Demming. The piece played down
    the scope of Demming’s influence, and made him look like a good
    old boy who wanted to help people celebrate birthdays. But just a
    little closer look shows a massive quid pro quo nexus, involving at
    least some part of Norfolk FBI across most of the country. At this
    level, the value of the Yellow Page space is nothing against the
    ability to have inside information on, or even run extortive or ‘third
    party law’ operations on a slice of the population nation wide. And
    all this through Norfolk…”
    ps, ‘Granby Street prosecution was fed.

  2. There’s a fascinating Discovery Channel documentary giving the history of the group that took the tour of the White House mentioned in the Washington Times article above. Nebraska Representative John DeCamp uncovered a filthy trail leading from Boys’ Town to the corridors of Washington. It was pulled just a few days before it was scheduled to air, but you can watch it here:

  3. Good, Shannon, this needs to be out. Also Google “Kay Griggs”. Those tapes got rid of Rummy.
    Surprised that today the Bangor Daily News (Maiine) agreed with Ms. Fitts.
    Very strong lead editorial saying NY Gov. thorn in administration’s side as biggest to complain about sup prime lending. Very conservative paper so was shocked. Perhaps winds of change.

  4. People have been attempting to bring out this information regarding the massive pedophilia of these evil clowns for some time now. One of the victims is still in prison (Alishia Owens), framed by the FBI (a thoroughly criminal organization). Another was murdered in my state, NM in a hospital (Shawn Boner). Not one of these ‘people’ have been brought to justice. The investigator was murdered by setting an explosive device off in his plane–the FBI just ‘happened’ to be there to collect the evidence he was carrying which never saw the light of day again ‘National Security’. I would love to add a number of alphabet agencies dismantled including the IRS, which is a fraud to begin with.

  5. the video link from Shannon is extraordinary and shocking. anyone who gives a flip about truth and corruption in america must watch it.
