Shocking Twist in the Alleged Zumba Madam Saga
The names of the prominent citizens accused of being clients of the notorious Zumba fitness instructor are now out. But, in a bizarre twist, it means completely innocent people are being dragged into the mess.
Cops in the fancy resort town of Kennebunk, Maine, have released the names of 21 men who allegedly paid for sex from Zumba instructor Alexis Wright.
But authorities released only the names. No home towns, no ages, no other details whatsoever. So now, innocent people with the same names as the accused Johns are living under a cloud of suspicion.
Retired Sheriff's Deputy Paul Main shares his name with one of the alleged clients. But he's not that Paul Main and he's furious that he now has to convince everyone he's innocent.
The name-and-shame tactic in the Zumba scandal was a hot topic on The View Tuesday.
Whoopi Goldberg said, "Why not? If you are going to embarrass the woman, why not embarrass the Johns? They are consequences to your behavior if you are the John."
Now, new video shows the inside of Wright’s Zumba studio.
The 29-year-old Zumba instructor, charged with using her fitness studio as a front for prostitution, says she's innocent.
Now, by the accident of his name, a respected ex-cop has to fight to preserve his reputation.
