Did Benjamin Nicholas Bring Down Trent Lott?

From QWEERTY.com:

 

Republican Senator Trent Lott caused a sensation today when he announced his early retirement. Insisting that he’s in good health, but neglecting to elaborate on why he’s quitting five years early, Lott’s revelation led some to speculate he’s accepted a more lucrative private sector gig.

 

Big Head DC, however, wonders whether Lott’s telling the whole truth.

 

 

The way BHDC tells it, Lott may have been involved with an escort named Benjamin Nichols:

 

 

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.

If Nicholas’ name sounds familiar, it should: he previously spoke out against Ted Haggard’s boy toy, Mike Jones, for airing the preacher man’s dirty laundry.

BN can speak for himself and I think he already has by disavowing any contact with Trent Lott or knowledge thereof.

 

Senator Lott announced that he would be retiring this year for several reasons that made sense to me. He has been in the US Senate for 34 years. He is 66 years old. He would have stepped down before now but when Katrina hit he thought he better stay on to maximize the aid he could help provide by being a senior senator. He wants or needs to make some "serious" money and the senate rules for lobbying will change in 2008.

 

My first thought is someone wants to smear Senator Lott or perhaps any Republican elected official and Lott is the one that announced he is retiring this year. Then a high profile escort was picked to become the co-respondent, so to speak and BN got selected.

 

So far, I have no evidence that there is any more to it than that.

 

However, people will think whatever they choose to think.

 

Best regards,

KMEM

The site that broke the story appears to be back up BN's denial of "current relationship": http://bigheaddc.com/2007/11/26/trent-lott-fallout-the-gay-escort-who-knew-too-much/

 

Someone should ask BN if that helmet hair on Trent is real.

There is a reason that a lot of people think that the gay community is filled with a bunch of whack jobs who think that behind every story is some gay angle or that everyone is gay they just don't know it yet.

 

This story is proof positive of why people think like that. C'mon. Do we have to keep giving ammunition to people who think like that??

Think about this. A law has been passed that take effect in 2008 that any congress person who leaves his job can not work as a lobbyist for 2 years after he leaves.

If Lott leaves now he avoids the future law and will be able to work for a private company as a lobbyist etc. I am sure a lot of deals have been made over the years and he has many contacts that will add more money than what he makes now.

Our government is going into the privatization of everything.

The people in the know that are Republicans are taking jobs in the private sector that will handle things government has.

The middle class is getting shafted and do not know it yet.

I am thinking this story might not be true like a few others and Lott is most likely leaving to be a lobbiest. I hope for BN's family this isn't picked up by the mainstream media and broad casted. It's one thing if it is on some indy type blogs but national news would cause some issues in the household.

Well, it's been picked up by "The Huffington Post" (the lib's Drudge Report) for what it's worth. It's on the main page, with picture. Having hung around THIS forum for years and

reading the Huffington Post infrequently, how funny to learn about it there first.

 

"Capriccioso defended the Lott piece, telling The Huffington Post "Big Head DC stands by our quotes and item 100 per cent," but he declined to share any of the emails Nicholas allegedly sent to the blog."

 

Interesting. Apparently the "Big Head DC" blogger has problems in the past with his reputation for credibility and one wonders how far he's going to go to prove his credibility THIS time. "E-mails", hmm?

 

http://images.huffingtonpost.com/gen/2648/thumbs/s-TRENT-large.jpg

From The Huffington Post (so is BN's picture from "AP" and Trent's "from Benjamin Nicholas"?)

 

(I saw on another thread the "Big Head DC" blogger claims a lot of "no comment" BN coyness before the "absolutely not" post on the 15 MM blog. Just confirms my belief that when it comes to escorts, I'll stick with the "non-famous", thankyou.) :p Past patterns of behavior lead me to believe Mr. DC blogger didn't pull BN's name out of thin air. Huffington Post comments are always fun to read:

 

"The rentboy probably has a whole lott of reasons to lie about his relationship with the senator. He's afraid of law enforcement, he's been paid off by the gopers, he's saving the details for his tell-all, threats, etc. "

 

I've always said it's #3 on that particular list. When it comes to ANYthing BN.

Rumors about Lott's sexuality have floated for years. Other bloggers have speculated that Larry Flynt may have had the goods on him.

 

On the one hand, the theory that Lott is leaving to become a lobbyist makes sense given the recently past reforms. Still, "Big Head DC" didn't pick BN's name out of hat (as was noted upthread), and BN seems to have a talent for saying things that get him in trouble. It could be boasting that's based on nothing or it could be boasting with some basis in fact that he didn't realize could make him a real media manwhore.

 

I like how BN is quoted as saying "Trent" (not "Sen. Lott" or "Lott", but "Trent", as if he's a good friend") is going through a lot. "Big Head"'s crfedibility problem seems to be one of parsing and probably no worse than the average lazy reporter. BN, on the other hand, clearly craves the spotlight and has carefully cultivated a certain image. Truth or not, this seems to have unraveled, as it often does. The DC world can be vicious. At some point, BN has a very good chance of losing his privacy and this is going to cut into his cache and credibility with at least some of his long-time fans.

 

BTW, Huffington Post is practically the NY Times compared with Drudge.

Well I don't think anybody even the tiniest bit on the right would not agree wholeheartedly.

In fact, it's the one thing both Arianna (Huffington) and Matt (Drudge) think, for different reasons :p

I think that if there was really anything to this, we wouldn't have heard anything about this story until it was ready to go with some kind of facts/evidence to back it up. As it is, there's nothing to indicate that this isn't the work of someone seeking fleeting 'fame' by spreading a little manure. Since the blogger won't even let the e-mails that he quotes from be independently verified, I don't see how this is any different than any other unverified gossip, at this point.

 

Having said that, I do wonder if there's a certain amount of karma at work given the times BN has posted dishy gossip or 'blind items' about fellow escorts in his own blog.

 

There's a saying that certainly seems to apply to all aspects of this incident that 'whoever throws mud, loses ground'. :)

There always seems to be rumors about the sexual preferences of various members of Congress. Usually I find this confined to the Conservative or Republican memebers moreso than the Democrats. I think it's one way of wanting to deflate an enemy in some respects. During the Don't Ask Don't Tell controversy in the Clinton Amdinistration I heard many a rumor about Sam Nunn being gay and into SM in the bars around town. Although Nunn was a Democrat he was no friend of gays but by making the accusation it likely gave comfort to those gullible enough to believe it.

 

In regard to Ben, he had better be careful on this one. Reporters camped outside his residence is not an unlikely possiblity. And if anyone in the campaign operations side of Lott's camp starts digging into Ben's background a lot of his personal information could be revealed. One call to the IRS could have Ben in a whole lot of mess - such happens in this town. This could cost Ben a whole lot more than Trent Lott.

Funny you should mention the IRS. The possibility of a tax evasion charge is very real if the authorities don't have enough evidence to bring other charges. I learned a few years ago of an acquaintance of mine that was originally arrested on drug charges. Those charges were dropped and then they successfully went after him for tax evasion. Maybe Ben should speak to Heidi Fleiss' attorney....or maybe not.

Wouldn't some BN-hater have turned him into the IRS long ago? No, I think he has to worry about legal action if he's been talking (and implying) and it's not true. If it is true, I'd bet he's loving every minute - and like Perez Hilton (of all people to mention here), I think he craves publicity and celebrity at any cost to anyone, including himself. Jeez, how come straights can order Paris Hilton's and Kim KardASSian's "accidental" sex tapes and we can't order Ben's? ;-) Hey, Ben, they both got TV shows after their's.....

 

(Arianna loves this so much (huffingtonpost.com), she's moved the story and pics higher up her page - right next to her column, in fact. Sort of "above the fold" as far as webpages)

Well, the DC blog guy has released Benjamin's e-mails and as expected it's not quite the bombshell anticipated by all and certainly could have been avoided with a simple "no" from you know who, who naturally had to play coy and strut his strut and plump his feathers for the cameras. Sigh. What's a big celebrity to do when the press just hounds and hounds?!

If you can't get in, I don't think his server is used to handling more than a dozen hits in an hour's time. Try again.

I read the e-mail exchanges on DataLounge. If accurate, Ben should have stopped at no comment. If Ben indeed referred to a US Senator by his first name because of a promise that things were "off the record," that was a significant mistake.

Well said. Winston Churchill once said "I think 'no comment' is a splendid comment and should be used as much as possible".

 

If these e-mails are indeed true (and so far we only have BHDC's word on that), then BN has certainly brought this on himself, and I doubt 'Trent' appreciates his help either.

 

It still seems to me that none of the parties involved have much credibility, which still makes it unfounded gossip in my book.

Looking at the email exchange, it appears that Ben has said enough to get himself in trouble. I like the business about being a blogger, "too". If he's never met "Trent" personally, he's made a bush league mistake and things may not turn out well for him....

If you mean trouble with his clientele or fan-base, I agree. If you mean legal ramifications, I doubt it. There's no there-there, just a big ego, big mouth and *wink*winks*.

 

On the other hand, if he is a tax-cheat (as some suggest), and has a Wikipedia page ferchristssakes (see other post somewhere), to quote some cop in "Ruthless People": "Hold on - this may be the stupidest person in the world we're dealing with."
