My good friend Tim Herman is Lance Armstrong's personal attorney, and is currently representing him on various matters. Tim was scheduled to come with us to Vegas until one of the cases had a "development" last week. On Thursday, Lance's former assistant (currently suing Armstrong) made allegations about Lance using steroids.
The article outlining Lance's (and Tim's) response is quite comical. It contains some good soundbites from the Armstrong camp.
"It's precisely what they threatened to do, unless we paid them the money,'' Herman said. "When they asked for the $500,000, they might should have worn a ski mask. . . . We told them unequivocally we are not going to pay blackmail or extortion money on something that's not true.''
Notice the end of that quote "on something thats not true." To me, that means that they will pay blackmail/extortion on something that is true.
