Daily Mail – A former mayor, a high-powered attorney, a real estate mogul and a financier have all been accused by police of being clients of a Zumba instructor turned alleged prostitute in a scandal that has rocked a small Maine town.
Justice Thomas Warren at first only allowed the release of the first and last names of clients accused of paying Alexis Wright, 29, a Zumba dance teacher facing 106 counts of prostitution and accused of running a brothel out of her studio.
But the decision caused a ‘witch hunt’ of suspicion and paranoia among the 10,000 residents of Kennebunk, with some men being wrongly accused and the judge was forced to reveal the full names, addresses and ages of the men.
One of the accused is the married former mayor of South Portland James Soule, 58. When confronted with the public humiliation, his lawyer said: ‘He obviously feels terribly about this. The biggest impact of this is on his family and his friends. That’s truly the most dreadful situation.’
I’m big on risk/reward so lets talk this one out.
- Risk – Lose job, public humiliation, lose family, go broke, have to move, live alone, eventual ending of it all.
- Reward – Banging a 6 at best in the back room of a Zumba studio. Way to think this one through you creepy old bastards.
