Any Posties Among the Madam's Clients?

By: Harry Jaffe

This just in from the Washington Post internal message board:

"Hello Everyone,” it begins invitingly.

It then explains that the phone numbers of the clients of "D.C. Madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey have been posted on the Internet. It then says:

"If your phone number is among them, please contact Sue Anne Pressley Montes for an interview as soon as possible."

The message didn’t say whether anyone owning up to being one of Palfrey’s clients would be exposed or become a source.

Or whether the message was a joke.
