A lobbyist who ran a call-boy ring for purposes of sexual blackmail, also implicated in the Franklin child prostitution ring. Died suddenly.

Craig J. Spence a US deep state actor who was implicated in the US VIPaedophile affair. He was connected to the Franklin child prostitution ring and also reportedly ran a Washington DC based call-boy service.[1] He died suddenly before he could testify. It was ruled a suicide.


In 2012, Charles Young described Spence as "surely one of the oddest figures in the history of American politics. Once a correspondent for ABC in Vietnam, Spence subsequently made a living blackmailing rightwing politicians in Japan. In Washington, he had a large house that he used for parties. The house was bugged from floor to ceiling, and he often seemed to be in possession of information he could have learned only from the bugs. He bragged about his CIA connections."[2]




The New York Times reported that "Mr. Spence arranged at least four midnight tours of the White House, including one on June 29, 1988, on which he took with him a 15-year-old boy whom he falsely identified as his son."[3]


“In November 1989, Craig Spence’s body was found in a room at Boston’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Next to it, on the bed, was a newspaper clipping about then-CIA Director William Webster attempting to protect CIA agents summoned to testify before government bodies. The Washington Post reported that Spence had been subpoenaed by the grand jury investigating Vinson. His death was ruled a suicide.”
