A “major financier” who bore some responsibility for the 2008 financial crash flew her to Tokyo so she could tie him to a headboard and put clothespins on his member. “The more aroused he got, the more I punished him.” He paid Woodard $25,000. But after two years, he asked her, “Would you be able to get me a young boy?” She refused, told him to get help and wouldn’t see him again.
The "young boy" must not have been the kind that he could've gotten through an escorts-for-faggots service, so he was looking for someone quite a bit younger than 18. Since she didn't tell the cops, she must not have thought he had someone pre-pubescent in mind. Probably someone around 12, like the priests and Orthodox rabbis go after.
Guessers at BlindGossip thought of Bernie Madoff, but I don't think so. He was around 70, and she uses the phrase "the more aroused he got." I checked Google Images, and he doesn't give off strong homo vibes. And why Tokyo? He doesn't have any known connection there, or preference for Asian culture. Plus, "bore some responsibility" would be quite an understatement to describe him in the tabloid media. They would've played up the drama more with "criminal," "con man," etc. At this point, nobody would ruin her for naming his name.
Then I remembered someone who would set anybody's gaydar off -- Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of Goldman Sachs since 2006. Like all other big wigs on Wall Street, he bore some responsibility, but is not widely reviled like Madoff. He's the Gala Chairman of the Rockefeller family's Asia Society, so he's more likely to pick Tokyo -- not what most rich guys would pick as their getaway destination for trysts. He would've been in his early 50s, so arousal wouldn't be so implausible.
And unlike Madoff, he's been an outspoken supporter of gay marriage for years, to the point of losing a big business client who didn't agree with it. Privately holding the belief wouldn't be unusual, but it is to be so outspoken for someone in such a high place within a nominally conservative sector.
Check out this mug, and pretend you're in the principal's office. Nope, no creepy pedo vibes here:
Other pictures of him smiling show the same giveaways that I detailed in previous posts in the "Hidden Homos" series. His upper lip doesn't curve up at the ends, but it pulled tightly straight across more like a small child's. And his eyes don't crinkle and squint, but show the typical arched-up eyebrows of a child showing surprise, eagerness, and excitement. It doesn't matter if they're the head of a major company, queers still can't help looking like hyper-sexualized Peter Pans.
Other pictures here, here, and here.
Who knows if he's the one being described in the tell-all memoir? It doesn't give too many specific clues. But he certainly does project strong gay vibes when he's trying to be his candid self and let it all hang out, and the other facts make him a more likely candidate than Bernie Madoff.
Then again, how many gay weirdos are there heading big Wall Street firms who aren't much in the public eye? People who are profoundly warped in one way tend to be so in other ways as well.
