- The affidavit from the FBI regarding Karen Sypher, Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino’s alleged extortionist, is out. The Courier-Journal published a quick blurb on it, but it’s got some interesting stuff, like this:
According to the affidavit, they discussed the possibility of a house, cars and money. The affidavit goes on to say that Tim Sypher delivered to Pitino on March 6 a written list of demands from Karen Sypher calling for college tuition for her children, two cars of her choice, a house paid off, $3,000 cash per month and a lump-sum payment of $75,000 if Pitino leaves U of L.
According to the affidavit, the note says, “If all is accepted, I will protect Rick Pitino’s name for life.”
The FBI gave Karen Sypher a polygraph test. Multiple sources say she didn’t pass the test.
Now my thoughts, for what they’re worth (which isn’t much).
