Well, let me be the first to congratulate you on posting it! Unfortunately, it looks like Perez Hilton beat you to it...

 

Here's the scoop as it might have read on fifteenminutesmore:

UPDATE, 5:30: “Here’s my public comment, on-the-record: Sen. Lott and I have no current affiliation with one another. I’m sure he would appreciate no further scrutiny,” Benjamin Nicholas tells Big Head DC.

 

ORIGINAL:

 

Must credit Big Head DC:

 

Once upon a time, there was a twentysomething boy-next-door type with reddish blond hair and a brilliantly white smile. Not one to shy away from attention, he wrote a blog called “Fifteen Minutes,” and also became a freelance writer for various publications, including The Stranger in Seattle. He’d often focus on his non-traditional lifestyle as a gay male escort — a topic that often fascinated his readers, which, in turn, helped him to garner a substantial amount of powerful business acquaintances through the years.

 

Based in San Antonio, he would travel all over the world to meet his clients, which included high profile celebrities, businessmen and even politicians in the United States Congress.

 

Sometimes within his writings he’d give advice on how other males could become successful escorts. Other times he’d post videos of himself flexing on YouTube. Once, he even scolded gay escort Mike Jones for outing Rev. Ted Haggard as one of his gay escort business participants.

 

“You were paid for sex, Mike,” he wrote in 2006. “The most important rule you can follow when taking people’s money in exchange for sex is that—no matter what—their lives stay their own and whatever passes between the two of you remains private. Period.”

 

Many of his clients greatly appreciate his professionalism. In fact, according to one 66-year-old patron who reviewed him on a gay escort site, he is “a very reliable escort who keeps you informed.”

 

The boy happens to be real, and his “stage name” is Benjamin Nicholas. One of the politicos Big Head DC has learned he’s alleged to have been involved with is the married Sen. Trent Lott, 66, who unexpectedly announced his retirement on Monday. Lott is well-known to have been against a plethora of gay rights issues throughout his terms in Congress. He was also good friends with Sen. Larry Craig throughout his time in Congress.

 

Nicholas told Big Head DC today via e-mail that he didn’t want to go on the record to talk about his dealings with Lott, because, said Nicholas, “Trent is going through his fair share of scrutiny right now and I don’t want to add to it.” However, e-mail and other records confirm that the two have met on at least two occasions.

 

“All I can say at this point is no comment,” Nicholas told us. “It’s the professional thing for me to do.”

 

In a subsequent e-mail message, Nicholas confirmed that another publication is working on a story about a “possible relationship” between Lott and himself, but Nicholas also “politely declined” an interview for that story.

 

“As I said before, Lott has quite a bit on his plate right now and I don’t really want to add fuel to the embers,” Nicholas told Big Head DC.

"Considering the sources, color me skeptical right now. Perez Hilton also reported he has solid proof that Fidel Castro died a few months ago."

 

As I have thought about this for the past few hours, I have pretty much come to the same conclusion. I tend to doubt the story is true, the media and the country is tired after the Larry Craig story, Lott has already resigned, so I doubt this story will have legs enough to get the media into it. We'll see.

 

Follow-up: The story is on Andy Towle's blog as well, http://www.towleroad.com, but I checked over at tmz.com and this was the best I could find:

Perhaps the hot plate special had cooled and he since he no longer had an appetite for this kind of thing he decided not to add fuel to the embers.

How long before some local or national reporter (or blogger) digs a little deeper into BN's history? Then decides to camp out in front of his residence, reveals his real name, and all manner of personal information comes spilling out about Ben. It's happened before in stories similar to this one so it's not improbable here. If you thought the plagerism mess was bad for BN, this could make that look like a cake walk.

 

Was someone out to get Lott or out to get Benjamin?

Why is the "plagerism" thing a "mess"?

Seems to me that if Nicholas wants this Lott thing to go away, his reputation as a "serial liar and plagiarist" (and I'm quoting here) are exactly what's going to save his ass? From what I've seen, he should be grateful for that famous Daddy's thread - many are linking to it left and right (and I mean on left-wing and right-wing blogs) to use as evidence there's nothing to this story.

BN">

 

From the website listed in Lucky's post

 

 

Me too - That velvet rope can be so annoying - especially when

 

someone like BN, whose time is so valuable is needed for things like

 

neuro-surgery, eliminating global warming, and creating world peace.

 

 

I must say I've never met BN. I was following this "story"

 

only hoping to see Trent Lott hoisted on his own hypocricy.

 

However, that line about the velvet rope just rubbed me the wrong

 

way - I hope at the minimum that his Little Head is as Inflated as

 

his Big Head

While I admit to enjoying the passing thought it might be true given the players supposedly involved, the truth is easier to discover. Lott is retiring this year because new congressional ethics regulations go into effect January 1, 2008. Anyone retiring this year only has to wait one year before lobbying his old colleagues. Anyone retiring in 2008 or later has to wait two years before doing it. The money is huge.

 

(After 34 years in federal politics Lott knows how to count votes, so this is also a message that at least one well-connected high-ranking politician figures that the odds of a GOP-controlled Senate are slim and none between now and when his term would have been up in 2012. And he's right.)

What does "Amex Cent, CO Lifetime Plat*, AA ExPlat, SPG Plat" under Benjamin's name mean on that page? Aren't some of those frequent flier programs? Whoopee-shit. Somebody ELSE has the Black AMEX credit card. (If that's what an "Amex Cent" is, if I were to hire Ben, he'd buy dinner, and to quote Sophia Petrillo, "I'm getting all white meat, AND a biscuit!") :p

Here's the details on the Amex Centurion card according to Wikipedia. The card used to be by invitation only, has a $2500 annual fee and a mimimum of $250,000 in annual spending required to hold the card. Eligibility requires significant financial assets and exceptional credit history. However, it appears that certain requirements are waived for celebrities and public figures.

I have to laugh at what Wikipedia chooses to include:

 

"According to the Brazilian American Express call center, there are only two people in the whole country that have the Centurion Card. One is known to be TV host Hebe Camargo."

 

I love Hebe! (That's the name of her Monday night TV talkfest, "HEBE!") I have to watch every time I'm down there, even if I can't understand any of it. At her age, (99? 104?) she's got to be Brazil's first and original faghag. Bet she uses her card for plastic surgery and meets the requirements 2 fold there alone. Color me impressed if BN can match HEBE! (but I suspect there are knock-off cards)

Don't stay TOO long under those hot TV lights, girlfriend.

Who in their right mind would pay an annual fee of $2500 just to use a credit card. Amex gets a percentage (from the merchants) of everything that is charged to the card. If you have to spend a minimum of 250K per year, one would think they are quite well rewarded without their $2500 levy.

 

I'd tell them to stick the card up their ass - but alas, I'l never get the chance 'cause there's a whole list of reasons why I couldn't qualify!
