Former Talk WTAA-A/ATLANTIC CITY local afternoon host VIRGINIA MCCABE testified THURSDAY in the trial of three men accused of setting up an ATLANTIC CITY councilman in a prostitution blackmail scheme, relating the tale of how an anonymous individual called her at the station claiming to have video of "an elected official having sex with a 16-year-old prostitute."
The PRESS OF ATLANTIC CITY reports that MCCABE, who moved on to the ATLANTIC DAILY SENTINEL/GALLOWAY NEWS website after the demise of the liberal Talk format at WTAA, testified that she got the call on NOVEMBER 26th, 2006 and thought it would be "one heck of a story, if it's true.: The man later delivered a DVD showing Councilman EUGENE ROBINSON with a prostitute the man claimed was underage (but was not).
Former City Council Pres. CRAIG CALLAWAY is already serving time in federal prison for the blackmail scheme, and his brothers RONALD and DAVID CALLAWAY and FLOYD TALLY are being tried for the same crime.
