David Letterman claims extortion plot
Late night comedian David Letterman claims he was the victim of an extortion plot. The Associated Press story is posted below.
David Letterman acknowledged on Thursday’s show that he had sexual relationships with female employees and that someone tried to extort $2 million from him over the affairs.
During the taping of his CBS late-night show in New York, Letterman discussed receiving a threat to either pay the money or risk the relationships being made public.
As part of the investigation, Letterman said he issued a “phony” $2 million check to the individual and the arrest followed — along with testimony by Letterman.
