One of the women at the center of the David Letterman alleged extortion case is Stephanie Birkitt, his former assistant -- according to the search warrant obtained by FOX 5 New York. And, the warrant says, Birkitt was the suspect's girlfriend and we've learned she was living with him until recently.

According to the warrant, the suspect, "48 Hours" producer Robert "Joe" Halderman, sent Letterman a package which allegedly included treatments for a screenplay with supporting materials.

The warrant goes on to say the "supporting materials" included copies of parts of a diary and correspondence belonging to Birkitt.

Halderman allegedly sent more documents, including letters, emails and photos.

On September 23, Halderman allegedly told undercover cops he wouldn't make the diary public if Letterman anted up $2 million.

Letterman acknowledged on his show last night he had sexual relations with female members of his staff.

Birkett has been a regular on Letterman's show (see video).

David Letterman is a Typical, LYING, NARCISISSTIC, SELF-SERVING, ARROGANT, DECEITFUL, HOLIER THAN THOU, HOLLYWOOD LEFTIST, HYPOCRIT...... and a Really Ugly Man.
And That Whore Madonna on his show the other night with her ridiculous comments, surgery, restalyn & botox injected face should go back to England like she said she did during the Bush years, as she put it.
BTW that ugly hag Madonna spends on average $22,000 per month at a Dermatologist/Plastic Surgeons Office on East 34th street and First Ave in Manhattan, on "maintenance procedures". Everytime she's in NY, that's pretty much why she's there., to go see this particular doctor. This is absolutely true and has been going on for years. I will not mention the Doctors name however. That's why she looks extra plasticky every once in a while. She usually hides from cameras for a few days after her office visits till it all settles, and then gets photographed. She repeats these same procedures LITERALLY EVERY MONTH.
PS I know guy Ritchie is thrilled to be rid of this Hypocritical Twisted Old Slut.

He tried to make it sound like he was the victim and everyone should feel sorry for him. I hope his show in cancelled due to low ratings. I'm sure Conan and Jay will have a field day with this one!!!

So, a rich guy had consensual sex with his personal assistant. I'm not getting why everyone is so shocked by this.

entrant/shelly and their numerous other names have been spewing Palin all over since this story broke. They are one the ignorant Palin followers that wants her as President.

Was Stephanie Birkitt in on this?

How many times are you going to make the same comments? We heard you the first time now STFU already.

Hmmm....makes you wonder if this girl was in on the extortion if she lived with him(until recently)? Or was the guy just "bitter" over the breakup? Regardless, who'd want to do Letterman anyway? Can you say 'Howdy-Doody'??

This girl was on the show a lot and I always thought it was creepy because he would make side comments to her like "Tell Daddy" "Do it for Daddy". Did he have her call him Daddy when they were having sex in his office?
