Just posted: After prison, Jeffrey Epstein attempted a social comeback. Despite the horrifying, and very public, allegations against him, it worked.
So many gross things in this remarkable Epstein story from my colleagues, but the kicker is truly breathtaking.
Kudos to the for doing this story. A lot of people who should have known better welcomed him — long after it was known he had a problem.
“the supposed author of a Forbes story calling Mr. Epstein ‘one of the largest backers of cutting edge science’ conceded in an interview that he was given $600 to post the pre-written article under his own name.”
In 2010, Jeffrey Epstein hosted a dinner party for Prince Andrew, with celebrity special guests Woody Allen and Charlie Rose.
The reports that , the "author" of a Jeffrey Epstein puff piece in — in 2013, well after his conviction — actually just got paid $600 under the table to pretend he wrote it. Epstein's people did.
One of the many things I learned reporting this article: in '94, , of "Sex and the City" fame, was assigned to look into Jeffrey Epstein. She was thrown out of his townhouse and threatened. 1994. 11 years before the first police report.
Great/sad tidbit here about Epstein using in his (pretty successful) effort to rehab his image:

In this NYT story about how Epstein worked his way back into wealthy corridors, they wedge in a sharp little paradigm point — Epstein could spin a (if you read the Herald reporting large) abuse scheme to sound like a onetime two-party thing
Has anyone asked ⁦⁩ about this? ⁦ - In 2010, the year after he got out of a Florida prison, Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos dined at his Manhattan mansion with a British royal.
“I’m not a sexual predator, I’m an ‘offender,’ Mr. Epstein told The New York Post in 2011. “It’s the difference between a murderer and a person who steals a bagel.” A story of enabling Epstein from several corners of finance and power.
Pay-for-play "journalism" is the norm. Why do you think so many write endless hit pieces on me? They are paid by Epstein and others like him to attack me.
"Mr. Epstein asserted that what he was convicted of did not constitute pedophilia, said Mr. Hay, who declined to represent him.The girls he had sex with were 'tweens and teens,' Mr. Epstein told him."
With each passing day, each subsequent story is pushing this into ‘True Detective’ meets ‘The Girl Who Played with Fire’ meets ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ territory. Won’t be surprised if more massive heads roll as they continue to put the pieces together...
