Condomizing Jesse Helms’ House – Yahoo! News

In the summer of 1991, we were sharing a house in the Fire Island Pines, along with Kevin Sessums, the journalist and writer who was then Staley’s boyfriend, and several others. Sessums was a close friend of mogul David Geffen, who was also on the island that summer.

One day shortly after Staley began planning the action, Geffen walked up to Staley on the beach and pressed a wad of $100 bills into his hand. It totaled $3,000. “Be careful” Geffen advised. Then Geffen made Staley promise not to divulge Geffen’s role in financing the action.
