Former Sen. Larry Craig Preferred "Quite Masculine" Rent Boys
Embattled former Senator Larry Craig preferred the company of very masculine male escorts, according to a new tell-all book.
The book, titled Confessions of a D.C. Madam, is penned by Henry Vinson, who served five years in prison after pleading guilty to federal racketeering charges.
Vinson employed up to 20 escorts on a given night in this “extremely lucrative” business. “The business was very successful.”
Not wanting to pin down a number to his profits, Vinson did mention a frequent customer who would spend $20,000 a month on his escorts. “Of course, in the ’80s that was a lot of money.”
Rich in the kind of sordid drama one might expect, Vinson’s book names names. Then-U.S. Rep. Larry Craig of Idaho, he writes, “became a frequent flier of my escort service” and “preferred escorts who were quite masculine.”
Although he claims he received many threats of blackmail from many of his powerful clients, Vinson’s business was in full operation until the Secret Service raided his home, his sister’s home and his mother’s home in 1989. And the rest is history.
Vinson says he wrote the tell-all memoir because of the "25-year character assassination by the media.”
