Morning Call Scrubs Archives of Shiatsu Sex Story, Gives DA Jim Martin "Happy Ending"

On Thursday, November 5, 2009, the Pennsylvania Superior Court resoundingly rejected an appeal filed by Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin.

DA Martin was attempting to get a higher court reversal on a ruling that was handed down against him by Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas Judge Robert L. Steinberg > Read Morning Call story by Debbie Garlicki.

On Saturday, November 7, 2009, LVS wrote a blog post commenting on and quoting heavily from The Morning Call's coverage of the same day > Saturday, November 7, 2009.

On Monday, November 9, 2009, Law.com covered the story, see: Sex With Informant Voids Prostitution Case, and this part really jumped out at us:

Debbie Garlicki, a spokeswoman for Lehigh County District Attorney James B. Martin, said her office plans to appeal the decision, but declined further comment.

W-O-W. So even though Lehigh County Court and the Pennsylvania Superior Court had both ruled against him, resoundingly, and the PA State Police (agreeing w/ the courts) was publicly condemning the actions of its participating troopers, DA Jim Martin was taking his crusade for paid informant sex all the way to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court!

And curiously, the "newspaper" "reporter" Debbie Garlicki had somehow become DA Jim Martin's mouthpiece. Officially. Maybe she always was.

Is this crony crooked enough for you? There's more.

On Wednesday, November 11, 2009, Morning Call "newspaper" "columnist" Paul Carpenter wrote a highly DA Jim Martin-friendly and purposefully mis-directing "puff" piece on this serious matter-- serious, when you consider the time, energy, and resources Lehigh County's "Top Cop" DA Jim Martin was spending on a paid informant sex case, which now included an announced appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

You'll notice in Paul Carpenter's November 11, 2009 article (see paragraph 3) his mention of a "Saturday" story ... so ... there obviously was a Morning Call story on Saturday, November 7, 2009.

Curious thing is ... we can't find it in The Morning Call archives anymore.

Try searching "Judge Steinberg Shiatsu" in the "newspaper" online archives, and curiously, nothing comes up.

Also, checking (carefully) The Morning Call's own Article Collections, here's the list of everything (wink wink) that ran in The Morning Call "newspaper" on Saturday, November 7, 2009.

As you can see, the "Shiatsu Sex Story" that ran on Saturday, November 7, 2009 ... the "Saturday" story Paul Carpenter referred to ... is not there anymore, as of the day and time of this post.

2011 is an election year for longtime Morning Call colluding crony DA Jim Martin, and questions about Big Jim's [alleged] Supreme Court Appeal regarding a paid informant sex case could make for some very embarrassing moments, in, say, a televised debate situation.

Is that why this story was tossed off by The Morning Call?

And what else will be disappearing from The Morning Call "newspaper" archives to protect DA Jim Martin?

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Tells DA Jim Martin to Beat It

1/26/11 UpDate: Former Morning Call "newspaper" "reporter" and current DA Jim Martin "Executive Aide" and spokeswoman Debbie Garlicki contacts LVS by email to say, "The Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied [DA Martin's] petition for allowance of appeal on April 27, 2010 ... i.e., the PA Supreme Court wouldn't even consider reviewing it, and The Morning Call "newspaper" of course never reported this. Garlicki then ran for the hills wearing wet panties when confronted w/ her stinky cover-up in the Chris Squires DUI homicide case, see comments. Read: Related Post
