The properties she is talking about are Keith Raniere’s “Sex Lair” at 8 Hale Drive, where last week I reported there was still a $90,000 Steinway Grand Piano sitting inside – and the “Branding Hell Hole”, Allison Mack’s former rented town home at 127 Grenadier, where some of the branding of women allegedly took place.
Of the last property, I personally feel that the EDNY DOJ is giving us a glimpse of a somewhat Dystopian world – since Mack did not own the property – and the true punishment is being meted out here not to Mack, but to a person who appears to be to be an innocent landlord.
After all, how could the landlord [whose property the feds are trying to seize] know what the otherwise respectable looking Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne were doing behind closed doors? Indeed, the landlord-tenant laws do not permit landlord snooping. Absent neighbor complaints – of which we have no known record – how is it fair, or indicative of justice, to punish the landlord for the secret-rites branding ceremonies that allegedly took place there?
Regardless, evidently, no one is allowed to remove anything from 8 Hale Drive or 127 Grenadier, according to the new postings on the doors, which were not there a week ago.
The feds previously raided Raniere’s sex lair – and removed items. What they did not remove was his $90,000 Steinway Piano which Frank Report first detailed was inside there [and remains there]. With mounting legal costs for her and other NXIVM members – it might have been tempting for Nancy Salzman – who allegedly gave the $90,000 gift to Raniere – to sell the Steinway Grand. It might fetch as much as $70,000 – if you didn’t tell the buyer who used to own it.
Of course with the craze for criminal memorabilia – the piano might be worth far more.
Here is my previously published, artist rendering of “Keith Raniere at his Grand Piano.” I sincerely hope the illustration does not cheapen what is otherwise a serious post.
