Lesley Taylor Groff was working for Epstein until his death in 2019.

In an exclusive interview with the Prince and the Pervert, her spokesman said she was an iexecutive secretary for the billionaire sex offender.

“After Epstein’s arrest, his attorneys set up a company (DKI LLC) to pay salaries and other overhead.  Lesley considered herself to be an employee of Epstein until she resigned in 2019 but was simply being paid by the company set up by Indyke at Epstein’s direction or knowledge,” the spokesman added.

As one of the Epstein women, she was listed as a coconspirator in the Epstein Florida plea deal in 2008.

Groff was ordered to hand over the names of every masseuse and every woman who had flown to Epstein’s home on Little St James Island.

Plus the names of all individuals who lived in one of Jeffrey Epstein’s properties.

The US Virgin Islands also wants an accounting of the money paid to Epstein’s masseuses.

In a statement sent to TheWrap, Groff’s attorney Michael Bachner denied Lesley had engaged in any misconduct when she worked for Epstein.

Lesley Groff’s husband, Ike Groff, is a former hedge fund founder who now works in real estate.

It seems she has gone on and lived her life since the Epstein allegations emerged in Florida 2005. As many have.

Lesley Taylor Groff came into Jeffrey Epstein’s world in the late 90s as a personal assistant.

She said in a 2005 interview, she would answer Epstein’s phone and manage his schedule, which led to a bond between the two.

“It comes down to the bond,” said Ms. Groff to the New York Times. 

“I know what he is thinking and I know when I need to be fast. It’s a nice roll we are on.”

But she was close to Jeffrey Epstein for almost 20 years. Lesley said in a 2005 New York Times interview, she could almost read Epstein’s mind.

But she more recently said she was shocked by the allegations against Epstein.

While working for the sex offender, Lesley was given access to a fancy hair salon and Epstein paid for treatments.

Plus he organised take away meals for his staff from a fancy restaurant. It was said Epstein didn’t like Lesley to eat too much.

As well, Lesley was also gifted a Mercedes after maternity leave. Epstein allowed her to have a nanny and he paid for the service.

Lesley Groff met Epstein and started working for him about two decades ago.

Fresh out of a divorce from her first husband, she married her second, Ike Groff, in 2003.

The University of Texas graduate said in a 2005 interview, she answered Epstein’s phone and manage his schedule.

This, in turn, led to a bond developing between the two.

Lesley Groff’s name features in allegations in several civil cases.

Epstein survivor Sarah Ransome told The New York Times, Groff communicated with her, “repeating Mr. Epstein’s promises to help her obtain a fashion degree.”

Ransome ceased her case against Lesley Groff in 2020 in order to access the victims compensation fund.

During that case, it was alleged in court documents Lesley monitored the “rules” the teens and young women were meant to comply with by Epstein.

Lesley Groff’s name also crops up in several other civil court cases.

Sex Trafficker Epstein’s Money: Secret Political Donations?

Jeffrey ‘s Epstein Money: Why would a personal assistant from a Republican foothold in Connecticut donate $2600 to a Democrat congresswoman who represents the US Virgin Islands?

Jeffrey Epstein’s assistant Lesley Taylor Groff did just that in 2014 when she handed over $2600 to Representative Stacey Plaskett. This is the politician who faced media heat about returning her Jeffrey Epstein donations.

Plaskett told CNBC last year; “My litmus test for accepting campaign contributions has been based on whether the donor’s money was made legally or by ill-gotten means and that the contributor will not ask of me or my Congressional office for any special favors. All my contributions have passed that test.

In this case however, I am uncomfortable having received money from someone who has been accused of these egregious actions multiple times,” said Plaskett, who represents the U.S. Virgin Islands in the House as a delegate.

By 2014, Epstein was toxic due to his jail stint and subsequent donations.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Money

Lesley Taylor Groff has been accused in civil court cases of playing a crucial role in Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.

She has also been listed as one of Epstein’s coconspirators on papers from the controversial immunity deal struck before Epstein went to jail in Florida.

In a statement sent to TheWrap, Groff’s attorney Michael Bachner denied she had engaged in any misconduct when she worked for Epstein.

“As an executive assistant to Epstein, Lesley worked as part of a professional staff that included in-house attorneys, accountants, an office manager and other office staff,” he said.

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t the only one in his sphere who donated to politicians.

One thing we know about this case is it is also about politics – the politics of gender, the politics of income and the politicisation of the justice system.

Thanks to Open Secrets we found records of political donations made by:

These donations could mean nothing. They might lead to some insights. We don’t allege anything inappropriate here but this blog is a record of the Epstein case.

The donations could mean nothing or everything.
