David Brock Paid Former Boyfriend $850,000 To Settle Alleged "Blackmail" Threat; Former Boyfriend Said He'd Rat on Brock's Finances to Drudge, HuffPo

I assume this guy is a rotten bastard. Blackmailers are awful.

But what information is worth $850,000 to a man who is not rich but merely quite comfortable?

Media Matters chief David Brock paid a former domestic partner $850,000 after being threatened with damaging information involving the organization’s donors and the IRS – a deal that Brock later characterized as a blackmail payment, according to legal documents obtained by FoxNews.com.

...

Grey threatened to go public about Brock and Media Matters' finances after he accused Brock in a civil suit filed in Washington of taking $170,000 in possessions, including an $8,000 Louis Vuitton suit bag, paintings, a rug, a chandelier, a painted bust of a Roman soldier and a pair of carved wooden chairs upholstered with purple fabric. Those possessions were displayed in the Washington townhouse where the couple entertained liberal movers and shakers in happier times.

Good Lord.

The onetime ladamour began emailing threats to divulge embarrassing information about MMFA's finances.

Please finish this today so I don’t have to waste my time emailing anyone – Biden, Coulter, Carlson, Huffington, Drudge, Ingraham," Grey wrote in a 2008 email.

Nearly two years later, Grey accused Brock of "financial malfeasance" and threatened to undermine Brock’s fundraising efforts.

"Next step is I contact all your donors and the IRS," Grey wrote in an email dated May 19, 2010. "This is going to stink for you if you do not resolve this now."

Brock paid $850,000 in what he himself termed "blackmail" in legal filings. He had to take out multiple mortgages to raise the sum. Later, he attempted to sue the ex-boyfriend to get the money back, accusing him of blackmail, and seeking total compensation of over four million dollars.

But they settled this fooferall under undisclosed terms.

Is that an official "domestic partner" or is this a euphemism for "live-in boyfriend"?

'Cause, if this were a marriage, there wouldn't have needed to be blackmail, Grey'd just get his stuff.

30 I honestly did not know that David Brock was gay.

Actually the libs brought it up first. His first noted piece was an attack on Anita Hill and they accused him of mysogyny.

Of course, his leaving the conservative movement had the abruptness of somebody who gets a hot new lover (with straight guys, it's a hot young lib wife) and I chalked up his turn to that. But now I'm thinking that he decided he was hot shit on a shingle and the leaders of the movement figured out that he was a power-hungry weirdo.

Okay, the act of blackmail may not presuppose the wrongdoing, but making the payment does. If I didn't do whatever I was accused of, why would I pay? Especially as a gay liberal who could scream for all the world about how the eeeevil conservatives were "targeting" him (yes, the fact his accuser is his gay ex-lover would be ignored).

42 It's usually pretty dumb to pay off a blackmailer. The information has a way of getting out regardless, and even if it doesn't, it takes more and more money to pay off. It's like appeasement, really.

But it does tell me that whatever this guy allegedly did, he's not proud of it and presumably guilty.

Otherwise, why pay so much?

This story also reminds me I need to buy a SMODload of popcorn.

Either that, or using MMFA as a dating pool. Remember that a lot of gay couples aren't exclusive (or at least, that's what the NYT, salon.com and other right wing sites keep saying), and two older gay men would certainly not shock many people on the left if they were bringing in a boytoy now and then. If Brock was using MMFA to hire young men for his pleasure, I'm pretty sure donors and the IRS wouldn't take kindly to it.

NBA championships within four years.


True.

I'm just surprised there's a victim card available to be played (especially tangentially like that) that they're not playing.

Because that's what I've come to expect from this President and his team of half-sentient pond-scum advisers.

101 Which indicates, to me, that the alleged behavior strayed over the line
into "criminal" far enough that Brock feared incarceration.


Who would press charges though? The IRS? So MM and/or Brock pays a fine / back taxes with donor money, case closed. Likewise, he reimburses MM for his fabulous suit bag and other trinkets. I doubt that Soros is going to get terribly outraged over a few missing decorations.

103 $8,000 for a suit bag? What an idiot. I got mine for $7,894.

And it isn't Louis Vuitton crap. It's made out of baby seal scrotums.

The scrotums are very small so it takes a lot of them. So it's not an outrageous amount to pay. At all. Really. Ask around.

And it's very collectable.

Oh, and free shipping.



I got mine for only $6995 with my Amazon Prime membership. Oh and mine is made from all the kitteh scrotums collected at vets when they get neutered.

I don't see William Grey's occupation listed. If he has a background in charities or politics he'd know about tax laws pertaining to 501(3)(c)'s. If not, I don't know how or why he'd have insider dope on which of MMFA's practices were illegal.

On the other hand, everyone can immediately see that personal costs should not be billed to a nonprofit.

I kinda like the net thingy better, myself.

200 186 "I look at Dershowitz as a useful tool. He is royally pissed at Media Matters blatant anti-semitism."

Anti-Americanism, yeah, sure, OK. Crap on America all you like. But anti-Semitism? Now I'm pissed!

202 well certainly it indicates there is embarrassing information out there.
The Ewok suit is ready, Mr Spades. I think we got out all of the pudding stains this time.

203 Liberal Jews ant it both ways. They want to support their democrat leaders, but/and they want to wish away the jew-hate/Israel hate that is deep within the democrat left.

204 176 I would say that most of this is misinformation. What facts do we really know?

So? Still funny.

..and ghey.

205 re: who actually paid the $850K for him?

Good question.

BIGGER QUESTION is who actually relieved Brock of his $1.5M vacation home in 2010's horrible real estate market.

Anybody know much about Vardell Realty Investments?

206 Who here will volunteer to be his next undercover gay lover?

207 The purse is $1000 so the suit bag, being 8 times larger, is $8000. Duh.

208 So, you're saying that $12,000 credit card charge at "The ManHole" wasn't for office supplies?
Let the record show that the receipt clearly states, "orifice supplies," your honor.

209 I'm one of those guys who thinks 'blackmail' shouldn't be considered a crime unless the information is false or revealing information would be in violation of a legal contract.

Probably one of the few extreme libertarian ideals I hold.

210 This is what happens when you bed down with snipers. That, and an occasional reach-around.

211 So why all the attacks on Brock now? I wonder why dirt is being dished to conservative sites after all these years. I wonder if someone at MM is trying to oust him for their own reasons. Not that I mind, I just get curious when liberals start trashing one of their own. They usually circle the wagons.

212 Iblis: "Not that I mind, I just get curious when liberals start trashing one of their own."

A lover scorned. It could be just that simple. The jilted is using what leverage he has to exact revenge and money, but mostly money.

214 So which form do you use to report blackmail earnings?

And wouldn't threatening to put a gay guy in jail be like threatening to send a kid to Disney World? While it wouldn't be my first choice, I have to say that if it were me being locked up with a lot of sex deprived women I would not consider it that much of a blow to the ol' lifestyle. Your mileage may vary.

IRS sort of had no problem looking the other way with Tim Geithner. There seems to be a lot of looking the other way for the past, what, three years?

What did Twitter do, Heather? A pop up with ACHTUNG! in warning letters and a notice below that if you click through you're a homophobe?

222 Geez

Its almost as if people that threaten to hire private investigators in order to dig into the personal lives of a certain cable news channels anchor staff, shouldn't live in glass houses.

Or something like that.
