Have you called back your mother, who called you the minute she heard about it on TV and asked, “WHAT’S WITH YOUR GOVERNOR?” (“THESE GUYS WITH THEIR EGOS, THEY THINK THEY CAN DO ANYTHING,” she probably said when you returned her call. That was probably just before your aunt sent you an e-mail asking for “the buzz from the city.”) Well, if you’ve gotten past these initial phases of dealing with trauma, it’s time to unload some more awkward details on you.

As soon as she came in, Kristen called her boss, Temeka Lewis, who was the booking agent for the Emperor’s Club V.I.P., an online prostitution ring, the affidavit said. Ms. Lewis told her that the client had arrived. He was headed for the room.
