Investigation:
Meet Sarah Kellen, Jeffrey Epstein’s dirty, dirty assistant.

It has been quite a week here at DealBreaker. Lawsuits, bashed-up bankers, Senate hearings, scandals, backdating, prostitution and human trafficking. We are about to take a badly needed weekend of rest, relaxation and toxic substance abuse. But before we close up shop and head out for the hinterlands, here’s a reminder of some of the juicy goodness you drank down at DealBreaker this week.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Assistant:
Your first look at a non-boring photo of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged sex slave. And then your first look at a second one! (Also note the demur headline we gave this item. We were going to call it “Sex, Slavery, Strap-Ons, Lesbian Under Age Prostitution Perversion and Other Habits of the Modern Money Manager” but that’s too long for a headline).
Eat Bacon: Andy Kessler tells us the whole cholesterol thing is a scam!
Langone Smacks Spitzer: Only on DealBreaker could you find the entire text of Ken Langone’s biting memo supporting his motion to dismiss Spitzer’s case against him.
Planespotting: That NYSE jet keeps going back and forth to San Francisco. We have no idea why so we just take our best guess.
Hedge Fund Hearing: The hearing was boring and long. We tell you what happened and make a couple of jokes.
Marketplace: Coke is dirt cheap in Belgium. Expensive in Scandinavia. Arbitrage anyone?
Court Room Drama: Bess Levin goes to court to watch Langone’s lawyers get smacked down by Judge Ramos. Bess (hearts) Ramos.

Planespotting:
MTV’s plane went somewhere. So did Ted Turner. Jane Fonda is making movie with Lindsay Lohan that we will never watch.

Value Added 7/21: Sex, Polls and Planes!

This week’s exclusive DealBreaker content, wrapped up in a neat package for your weekend perusal.
Planespotting: From naked Russians, through Donald Trump to yachtspotting.
BreakingNews: We are the first (and so far only) to report that SEC whistleblower Gary Aguirre has not been asked to testify at next weeks Senate banking committee hearings on hedge funds. Despite the fact that the banking committee has oversight responsibility for the SEC. And despite the fact that Aguirre was investigating alleged insider trading at a hedge fund when he was fired by the SEC.
Planespotting: Brad Pitt in Africa. The CIA in Canada. Just so long as everyone’s priorities are right.
Reader Poll: You voted on whether or not the post 9/11 options grantees were assclowns.
20 Banker Poll: Investment bankers tell us what they think of CFOs hanging out with hookers. The verdict? Depends on the hooker!

Planespotting:
Rush Limbaugh gets caught carrying a bottle of Viagra coming home from a notorious sex tourism hotspot. Bess Levin blows a gasket on our Planespotting machines trying to track him down.

Photo Essay:
Jonesing for a fix of a classic Wall Street movie? This week you didn’t wait around for the sequel to Wall Street—you witnessed the making of Boiler Room. But with dolls.

What do Bob Geldorf and Warren Buffet have in common?
Planespotting:
While the the Planespotting machine is still down, Rush Limbaugh and DealBreaker’s Bess Levin patch things up.
