For a fee, police say, men were escorted from the lobby of a downtown Silver Spring hotel to Room 506 for group sex.
Such transactions, authorities say, aren’t unheard of. But in this case, the man collecting the money was a federal security manager at Dulles International Airport, according to a court papers and authorities. Police said Wednesday that the suspect, Bryant Livingston, is charged with five counts of running a prostitution scheme. He is no longer employed by the federal Transportation Security Administration.
Reached for comment Wednesday, Livingston, 39, said that he is innocent and that the TSA has a vendetta against him for filing a racial discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Livingston said that he posted an ad on Craigslist for a swingers party and that no one paid him to take part. “This was a swingers event, and the charges are absolutely false,” he said.
