Massage Parlor Mogul Claims She’s Been Victimized For Supporting Trump

South Florida massage parlor mogul and alleged Mar-a-Lago political peddler Cindy Yang has had her reputation and honor destroyed by “abhorrent allegations” in the media, Yang’s lawyer Evan W. Turk said in a statement Thursday issued to TPM.

“At this time, the evidence indicates that our client has been falsely accused in a manner that she may never recover from,” Turk said in the statement. “Her name, her reputation and her honor have been destroyed.”

“Cindy Yang seems to be another casualty, as a supporter of our president.” Turk added.

Yang has made headlines in recent days for a bizarre mixture of reasons. The Miami Herald reported that she was running a south Florida chain of massage parlors (with a happy ending) while peddling access to top Republican officials through Mar-a-Lago.

She first drew scrutiny for founding the massage parlor that ensnared New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

TPM reported that she was also hawking immigrant investor visas, coupling the pitch with suggestions of access to Trump.

“Palm Beach Law Offices has been recently retained to represent Cindy Yang and the abhorrent allegations,” Turk said in the statement. “Our firm is reviewing all the relevant information.”

Turk himself appears to have gotten involved in the periphery of Trumpworld through Roger Stone. He held a March 6 fundraiser for Stone’s legal defense fund with his wife, Karyn.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
