Rekers' Attempts to Keep Rent Boy Quiet

Miami New Times

BTW, the dollar figure Rekers took for his "expert" testimony on the gay adoption ban legislation in FL has been revealed to be $120,000 for him alone.

Rekers adopted a boy who was 16 at the time. He's now about 20.

That reads dramatic. And very sad, because it's real life.

Parts didn't seem to match with an article I found with a photo of Lucien. (As in, I'm not sure why the article had a photo of his face, smiling at the camera.) Unfortunately, I did not save the article, and I can't find it now.

This morphed very quickly. It was first reported online on Tuesday, and Rekers' efforts at damage control caused his story to change several times.

Lucien at first defended Rekers. Escorts are said to be very protective and loyal to their clients, as a rule. But he received pressure from his friends in the gay community. He apparently did not know who Rekers was or the extent of the damage he did to the gay community.

He has come out now and started giving interviews. It will be interesting to see if anyone tries to prosecute him for soliciting on Rentboy. I'm sure under most circumstances, law enforcement looks the other way, knowing that, in cases like this, there is no pimp forcing anyone into prostitution, so who is he hurting, really? Yes, it's illegal, but so is marijuanna, and often law enforcement looks the other way, knowing there are real criminals to go after.

This guy is SO busted. I doubt he will ever call Lucien again though now that the reporters exposed the listening.

I do feel like they probably did not just up and leave because it was emotional. I don't know why they dropped the story there, but as professionals they wouldn't just walk away. I think there is more they didn't tell us. (Maybe prosecuting information they can't make public yet or something).

There is more on Lucien. I'll try to put it up today. He's in a rather precarious position, since what he did was actually illegal, as opposed to Rekers, which was immoral/hypocritical (although I suppose seeking a prostitute is also illegal). Both are contending they did not actually have sex, though, and paying for a massage, however erotic, is perfectly fine, even if it's done on Rentboy.com. ;P

Yes, I was left wanting more in this article. It had to be bizarre listening in to a conversation between deluded closet case trying desperately to save his reputation and career, and an apparently nice, naive kid who was just looking to make an extra buck. He seemed to genuinely like Rekers before he found out the extent of his dealings with the gay community.
