Verboten Has Been Shut Down By The New York State Government For Tax Evasion

first_imgPopular nightclub/venue Verboten has been seized by the New York State government for failure to pay taxes, according to several reports circulating this evening. Verboten is the center of some legal allegations, as a major exposé recently published in the NY Daily News uncovered that 16 different employees had filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against the club’s married owner, Jen Schiffer.According to that report, lawsuit papers claim that Schiffer “discusses her sex life — including her favorite sexual positions and sexual encounters with her husband, John Perez, and other women.” In a statement, attorneys Michael Willemin and David Gottlieb of Wigdor LLP said, “In return for being dedicated employees, our clients were mistreated, sexually harassed and not even paid for vast stretches of time.”The lack of payment seems to be another running theme with Verboten, as numerous promoters and artists have alleged that the venue has not paid them. With that in mind, it’s perhaps unsurprising that the venue was seized by the New York State government.The recent lawsuit also alleges that Schiffer “pressured workers into threesomes, boasted about sleeping with more customers than her husband and freaked out when too many black patrons attended a party.” Yikes.Between the horrific lawsuit and the inability to pay funds owed to the government, it seems that Verboten’s closure may be for the best.last_img read more

Bugging row: Swamy accuses Chidambaram of planting devices

first_imgJanata Party leader Subramaniam Swamy has joined the bugging debate, accusing Home Minister P. Chidambaram of planting devices in Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s room at the behest of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Meanwhile, the BJP has also demanded a “complete probe” into the issue. “Try and dismiss it as some chewing gum being stuck. Who will stick chewing gum? Only senior officials meet the FM. Normally, the chewing gum is used by intelligence agencies across the world to stick small cameras and small wireless microphones and then it’s easy to take it away,” Swamy said on Wednesday. Swamy said that the fact that the finance minister did not first inform the home minister about the security breach in his office was highly suspect, adding, the issue needed to be thoroughly probed.  The Janata Party leader continued, “Second, the significant factor is that the FM could have normally called the home minister over phone. He didn’t do that. Instead, he wrote a letter to the prime minister. This is a very very serious issue and it has to be thoroughly probed. It’s not safe.”  “According to my information, this tapping was done at the direction of P. Chidambaram and perhaps he was asked to do so by Congress president Sonia Gandhi for Hasan Ali case, because Pranab was showing signs of guiltiness in the Supreme Court. If names are released, it will lead to many other big names,” Swamy added. BJP seeks thorough probe  Meanwhile, the BJP has also demanded a thorough probe into the bugging controversy. “It’s a serious issue, which we can’t wish away. We demand a complete enquiry into the issue,” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters in Delhi on Wednesday. That Mukherjee sought the help of the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) instead of other probe agencies and wrote to prime minister Manmohan Singh are proofs that that something is amiss, Javadekar said. Suspecting a conspiracy in the bugging case, another BJP leader Anurag Thakur also castigated the UPA government for “new disclosures” every other day, saying there was never a government, which was so unpopular and neck-deep in scams like the current regime. ‘India’s Watergate’ Earlier, leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj compared the episode to the infamous 1970s’ Nixon-era scandal in the US, on Twitter.  Sushma termed it as India’s ‘Watergate’, which needed to be thoroughly probed. Sushma wondered whether the government was spying on its own minister or a corporate house in doing so. Sushma scoffed at the chewing gum theory set by the Intelligence Bureau and termed it hard to digest. ‘Trust deficit’ Demanding that the government come clean on the issue, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told Headlines Today, “Why didn’t such a senior politician as Pranab trust the home minister? There is a trust deficit between the finance minister and the home minister. There is a simmering sign of one-upmanship between the two ministries.” “If there is lurking suspicion of one-upmanship between the finance minister and the home minister, who will clear the air?” Prasad asked. Congress spokesperson Jayanti Natarajan said, “There is no rift. The issue is being sensationalized. This is entirely in the realm of speculation. It is his (Opposition spokesperson’s) job to make a mountain out of a molehill.” Deputy Editor of The Hindu Siddharth Vardharajan said, “At some level, there is a security breach and the government should provide some kind of explanation.”advertisementFor more News, click here.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
