Accused Las Vegas Madam Admits "Doing Work" For Bill Clinton
In the latest development… The Las Vegas madam’s lawyer says that his client did indeed do work for Bill Clinton, but she only did his makeup – and nothing else…
Sort of like “smoking pot but not inhaling” one would imagine.
Alleged “Madam” Esperanza Brooks was busted earlier this month.
The lawyer for an accused Las Vegas “Madam” says she did work for Bill Clinton but only to provide makeup, not girls.
Alleged “Madam” Esperanza Brooks told undercover officers her clients “range from ‘Shaqille [sic] O’Neal to Bill Clinton,'” according to a police report obtained by the Blotter on ABCNews.com.
In the report, Brooks is quoted as saying she employed 40 girls who were “very discrete and only go with upscale people.”
“These are not your average girls,” Brooks said. “Some of them have worked with Bill Clinton.”
In his first interview since his client’s arrest, Brooks’ attorney Michael Sanft told ABC News his client did indeed work with both Bill Clinton and Shaquille O’Neal, but only in her professional capacity as a makeup artist when the two men made public appearances in Las Vegas.
Brooks was working as a volunteer “cheerleading coach” for the Andre Agassi Academy for underprivileged youth in Las Vegas when she was arrested on charges of operating a “prostitution out call operation.”
Attorney Sanft denies Esperanza was operating a prostitution ring, saying she has no prior arrests and never had 40 girls working for her.
“Her judgment was blurred by her eagerness to make a quick buck. She was misread and misinterpreted as a ‘madam’ as she tried to play herself up as something that she wasn’t,” he said.
A spokesman for former President Bill Clinton declined to comment to ABC News, but last week told the New York Post, in which the arrest was reported, “Apparently, total fabrications that get made up in Vegas don’t stay in Vegas.”
Esperanza Brooks may allege that she is innocent but in a police sting earlier this month, Miss Brooks and two of her “friends” were arrested on prostitution charges.

Police said Friday, June 8, 2007, that Esperanza Brooks, 36, a cheerleading coach at the prep school founded by tennis star Andre Agassi, and Kemp, 30, believed to be her business partner, were arrested Wednesday night in a Las Vegas restaurant after Brooks agreed to deliver three prostitutes and drugs to undercover detectives at a hotel-casino. Brooks, a woman believed to be her business partner, Rashena Rashel Kemp, and Alexander, Tiffany Alvord and Rachel Wall, each believed to be prostitutes working for Brooks, were arrested in the sting, police said.
