When a scandal like the one engulfing Jeffrey Epstein breaks, it is always interesting to see where things lead. According to published reports, one of those Epstein connections may lead to Victoria’s Secret.

Italian model Elisabetta Tai says she was directed to Epstein — arrested last week for sexually abusing minor girls from 2002 to 2005 – back in 2004 was a contact who might help her get into modeling for Victoria’s Secret.

“He told me this is one of the most important people in modeling,” Tai told The New York Post. “He said that this man is in charge of Victoria’s Secret and he’s going to change your life.”

The meeting reportedly didn’t go as anticipated. “I rang the doorbell of this incredible mansion, and a butler answered the door,” said Tai in the Post interview. “It was astonishing. It was a very beautiful house, and I saw about five models walking around as soon as I walked in. I was so excited.”

The encounter went as one might guess, and when Tai tried to leave, as she recounts to the Post, a woman who worked for Epstein “told me that I couldn’t just leave. She said that this man is important, that he is a friend of President Clinton.”

Indeed, CNBC has reported that Clinton visited Epstein in prison while he was serving a 13-month criminal sentence in 2008 and 2009. There was, in fact, “a revolving cast of characters take turns visiting him… Those visitors included Epstein’s appeals attorney Alan Dershowitz, who showed up on New Year’s Day 2009, as well as Arnold Paul Prosperi, a college friend of former President Bill Clinton, documents show.”

Still other alleged connections have also emerged. ABC News has reported that Epstein “has been a prolific donor to various Democratic campaigns and party committees over the past couple decades… One of the biggest beneficiaries of Epstein’s contributions was then-Senate hopeful Hillary Clinton, who received $20,000 from him in 1999 through her joint fundraising committee with the Democratic Party, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign also received $1,000 from Epstein in 1992.”

Last week, the New York Times reported that Epstein had “asked a federal judge to release him on substantial bond. He offered both his New York mansion, which city tax documents valued at close to $56 million, and his private jet as collateral. Prosecutors said on Monday they sought to have Mr. Epstein held in jail until his trial, pointing to his wealth as they said he had “an extraordinary risk of flight and danger.” Mr. Epstein’s bail proposal is expected to be taken up in Federal District Court in Manhattan on Monday.”
