    and his carnival sideshow at the National Press Club Wednesday...STOP!

    It seems that whitehouse.com, the former porn site that gave Sinclair a polygraph (which he failed miserably), will be holding its own NPC press conference immediately following Sinclair's.

    It sounds as if they will be debunking the whole story and throwing Sinclair to the wolves.

    Sinclair, conman and conspiracy theorist extraordinaire (read big fat liar), accused the website of taking a bribe to "suppress the real results."

    I don't think whitehouse.com appreciated it, bless their sleazy hearts:

    WASHINGTON, June 17, 2008: Whitehouse.com will hold a press conference regarding the Larry Sinclair controversy on June 18, 2008 in the Visagor Lounge of the National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20045. Signup will start at 3:00 PM, and the actual conference will start at approximately 4:00 PM, following the conclusion of Mr. Sinclair’s press conference, which is scheduled earlier in the day.  

    At the press conference, Whitehouse.com will describe how, in February 2008, Mr. Sinclair accepted an offer from Whitehouse.com to take two professionally-administered polygraph examinations to test the veracity of his explosive allegations. After the initial polygraph expert examined the results and made his conclusions, Whitehouse.com was accused of taking a $750,000 bribe to suppress and or alter the results of the polygraph examinations.

    During the press conference, Whitehouse.com will release the results of the polygraph examinations, the reports of the experts, and a video of Mr. Sinclair taken while the examinations were being administered.

    Whitehouse.com focuses on giving average Americans a greater voice on issues facing the country. Whitehouse.com, which is celebrating its 11th year, has been visited by over 100 million people since its inception in 1997. We are not affiliated with or endorsed by U.S. Government.

      to the National Press Club. Nice to know that they are trying to redeem themselves.

        The Press Club claimed they are just 'renting space' for the Larry Sinclair event. If I would have to guess, they are also renting the space for the rebuttal by Whitehouse.com afterwards, so they don't deserve any kudos, they have NOT tried to redeem themselves. Since they had to know who Sinclair was, when he tried to book his press conference they could of told him to pound sand.

        Press Club = big whores - that's why they were selected as Worst Persons In The World (3rd Place), they didn't acknowledge any responsibility for the shameless using the Press Club name in the attempt by that liar Sinclair to get into the limelight again.
