Enquirer: Enron Had Wild Sex Parties and Clinton CIA Help

newsmax.com Thursday, Feb. 21, 2002; 9:38 a.m. EST

The National Enquirer may finally be able to add some desperately needed spice to the otherwise enervating Enrongate scandal, with a report hitting newsstands Friday that claims the collapsed energy giant was knee-deep in wild sex parties and CIA espionage.

Up till now the scandal has been tough to follow for anyone outside of the green-eye-shade crowd, despite near-hysterical coverage by elite media organs desperate to tie Enrongate to the Bush White House.

And while the Enquirer's investigation doesn't help much on that count, front page headlines touting "The Untold Story" of "Adultery" and "Greed" are followed on NE's inside pages by details of company financed sex parties at high-priced strip clubs and allegations that CIA corporate espionage on behalf of Enron began under former President Bush and then "exploded under President Clinton."

Some highlights reported by NE:

"Enron executives frequented several Houston strip clubs and billed thousands of dollars directly to the company - including a tab for VIP rooms where sexual favors were disepensed to big spenders.

"Typically a group of five or six would come in for lunch, drink a few martinis and get private lap dances from the girls. They paid with credit cards that clearly said 'Enron' on them," a source at one of the clubs told the tabloid.

"Anything goes in the VIP room. It isn't uncommon for the girls to provide sexual favors for big spenders. And a lot of these middle-aged Enron executives were some of the biggest spenders in the club.

"Enron-sponsored parties would often spiral out of control with senior officials' bar tabs skyrocketing to over $10,000."

The energy giant's fraternity party atmosphere wasn't just reserved for off hours, with attractive young women allegedly rocketing to the top of the corporate ladder while earning eye-popping incomes.

"Even in a company where beautiful women were routinely on a fast track to promotion, one executive secretary's $650,000 salary raised eyebrows," NE claims, sourcing e-mail tipsters inside Enron.

The story takes a cloak-and-dagger twist with the allegations that both the Clinton and Bush administrations signed off on CIA help for the corporate giant.

"There have been at least 20 CIA agents on the payroll of Enron for the last eight years," a source familiar with several ongoing Enrongate probes told the tabloid.

Using super secret spy technology like Echelon, the agency was "able to provide detailed information on bids made by foreign companies on projects of interest to Enron.

"Using the CIA for economic intelligence began with President Bush Sr. and then exploded under President Clinton, when even the Commerce Department was infiltrated with CIA agents," the Washington insider told NE.

Jrj, just because the Enquirer isn't a leftist rag-sheet doesn't mean its articles don't have any merit! It's not the most widely-read paper in the U.S. for nothing. Rag on the public as you will, but the same public also gave Gore the popular vote, so be careful. The Weekly World News is the one about aliens. I read them all, so I know.

I have read this article, and the "Clinton" factor isn't quite what was represented here. The article simply states that during the Clinton administration, many CIA agents were put on "leave" and were able to work for the private sector. Some, as the article alleges, worked for Enron overseas and were able to obtain information that helped Enron get overseas bids and the like, even with sleazy tactics. There is no direct attack on Clinton or his administration. It also makes reference to Republicans helping Enron overseas as well. So, I would not call the article anti-Clinton. It does make the point that many of these CIA "on leave" people were able to return to the CIA after Enron's collapse, but given the timing, I see it as the CIA needing all of its people back.

of course does not mention the real tragedy of Enron...governemnt helping businesses and its so-called oversight...the issue to be learned is for government to leave business alone totally and let the free market reign

another thing that can be mentioned in relation to Enron's culture and that from the previous administration--and all those who admire it, is the notion that 'clan family' immorality is a precondition for collectivism, which the liberal-left just adore...this feature of collectivism had reappeared spontaneously from the same principle, in the Oneida Community, in the United States. To prevent "selfishness," promiscuity was practiced; and if two young people had a strong mutuel affection, which was called "special love," it was denounced as anti-social; the young couple were separated and persuaded to change partners frequently. The idea is so revolting that it seems hardly credible, but the thing was done. Always collectivism denounces natural affections and relations and suggests shifting personal obligations onto "society." It promises easy divorce, state support of children, the pleasures of promiscuity; it ends in slavery and violation of personality...

Enron provides a perfect example of the dangers of corporate subsidies. The company was (and is) one of the biggest beneficiaries of Export-Import Bank subsidies. The Ex-Im bank, a program that Congress continues to fund with tax dollars, essentially makes risky loans to foreign governments and businesses for projects involving American companies. The Bank, which purports to help developing nations, really acts as a naked subsidy for certain politically-favored American corporations- especially corporations like Enron that lobbied hard and gave huge amounts of cash to both political parties.(including Gov. 'red' Davis) Its reward was more that $600 million in cash via six different Ex-Im financed projects...free-market capitalism??? hardly
