I plan on making

I plan on making this the last post on this question, but this is instructive.

Here’s the key portion of Marina Ein’s second statement on my July 16th Salon article; it’s dated July 18th.

I did not, and would not, make the statements that have been attributed to me … I am the mother of a daughter who is approximately Chandra Levy’s age, and I am a female professional. The suggestion that I would make comments like those attributed to me is abhorrent.

Here’s a clip from the New York Daily News’ Thursday article about the Chandra Levy investigation, with emphasis added:

Ein released a statement denying she told reporters DePaulo was working on a story about Levy’s alleged one-night stands, calling the suggestion she would say such things “abhorrent.”

But the Daily News has confirmed that Ein made the comments to reporters for at least three news organizations.

She did not return calls from The News but told The Washington Post: “I’m so exhausted, and frankly I’m at the end of my rope with this whole thing.”

I guess it turns out that this is one of those suggestions that is both “abhorrent” and true.

At least so says The Daily News.
