John List Gone But As Talia Ray Democratic Party Link$ Emerge Among Claudia Drury Clients A Dem Dip

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY / DC, March 28 --The Larry Ray trial, entering what might be the final week of evidence, got political. But first it got or continued to be both depressing and baffling. Why would Felicia Rosario, a medical student at Columbia then a hospital resident in Los Angeles, give it all up to be abused by Larry Ray?

   Felicia testified that Larry Ray told her to go have sex with strangers in bars and to film it. That she wandered around Pinnhurst, North Carolina catatonic, then sleeping out on the porch for five days. That Larry and Isabella locked her out of the refrigerator in the house in New Jersey.

  And then there were the politics.

     The Larry Ray scandal or at least trial trended so far to the right. There was Larry Ray with Rudy Giuliani, to whom Ray introduce Mikhail Gorbachev. There was Larry Ray and Bernie Kerik, and then there wasn't. But when victim Felicia Rosario testified, once the jury was out of Courtroom 24B, there emerged or was alleged a link between Talia Ray and the Democratic Party in North Carolina, with Felicia Rosario sending money to them.

   This made Kurt sit up and take notice. People had been writing to him, by email and on social media, about Talia Ray's position as a paralegal with the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, and why she wasn't being indicted like Isabella Pollok.

   Kurt checked - it has been written up, "Talia, who is active in the state Democratic party." And her campaign contributions.

   Among Claudia Drury's prostitution clients, all to pay Larry Ray and presumably or presumptively aware that she was being abuse, was a John with a name elsewhere profiled as a stalwart of the current Administration's foreign policy, having signed up in the wake of seeing the events of January 6, 2021. World's collide. #JohnListGone - more on Patreon here.

[It, like a song about Lev Parnas was also covered, behind a paywall, by New York Magazine which had this to say about Inner City Press' covered in late 2021 of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, book here via one of the companies with an executive on the John list.]

 When Inner City Press for investigative reporting was roughed up and thrown out onto First Avenue from covering the United Nations of/by UNSG Antonio Guterres, many did nothing. But as we've previously noted, the First Amendment stops at First Avenue. We'll have more on this, here and on other platforms.
