In this morning’s Star Ledger, Cop, private eye tied to Kushner sex plot: Sources identify E. Orange police captain and his brother as middlemen
The inclusion of a veteran police officer as a possible conspirator in the case adds another sensational detail to a lurid crime plot that already includes a fierce feud between millionaire siblings, secret sex tapes, high-priced hookers and federal agents.
Kushner, a multimillionaire developer, philanthropist and prominent Democratic Party donor, allegedly paid the men and two call girls about $37,000 in cash to arrange and videotape the seductions of two of his former employees. The targets had been cooperating with FBI and IRS agents who were investigating Kushner’s businesses and political contributions.
The middlemen allegedly directed a prostitute to pose as a motorist with car trouble and lure Kushner’s brother-in-law, attorney William Schulder, to a Bridgewater motel for sex in December.
Prosecutors say that Kushner then waited five months before ordering a videotape of the encounter mailed to Schulder’s wife — who is Kushner’s sister, Esther — as retaliation for the couple’s cooperation with agents.
The middlemen and a second call girl allegedly set an identical trap for another witness, former Kushner Companies bookkeeper Robert Yontef. But Yontef spurned the prostitute’s advances.
Apparently the local girls weren’t interested, so middlemen had to cross the Hudson and spend big bucks,
But even together, the two men faltered in their assignment from Kushner, the federal complaint said, because neither co-conspirator could locate a prostitute to participate in the scam. Instead, after months of waiting, Kushner “personally recruited” a New York City call girl and promised to pay her $7,000 to $10,000 to seduce his brother-in-law, the complaint alleges.
Either way, Yontef turned her down. Good for him!
