Some more on the mess Brian Cashman has created, from the Post today -
Manhattan prosecutors have subpoenaed Yankee general manger Brian Cashman’s bank records—which sources say include evidence that he coughed up as much as $20,000 to accused extortionist and purported mistress Louise Meanwell as far back as April, The Post has learned.
Those alleged payments raise the question of whether Meanwell was shaking Cashman down for nearly 10 months — or whether the big bucks were legitimate gifts as part of an affair, as she claims.
Cashman made “several” cash deposits in the range of $4,000 each into the British-born woman’s bank accounts over the last 10 months, a source close to the case told The Post.
Meanwell herself claims she received between $18,000 and $20,000 in the same time frame.
The records sought include handwritten deposit slips Cashman used to personally funnel money into Meanwell’s account.
“His handwriting is on those deposit slips, so there’s no way he can claim he wasn’t giving her this money,” said the source.
Meanwell’s bank records have also been subpoenaed.
And, then there is this also from the Post on the woman Brian Cashman choose to bring into his life -
Former targets of alleged serial stalker Louise Meanwell, men who all lived in the Albany area, said she won’t move on from her obsession with Yankee general manager Brian Cashman anytime soon.
“She’s not done with Cashman. She’s never done,” Meanwell’s former live-in boyfriend, David Sano, told The Post.
“You learn that about Louise. She’s ruthless.’’
The ominous prediction came as Sano recounted a wild, two-year ride with Meanwell that began as a 2001 one-night stand and spiraled into a nightmare that included claims of a pregnancy and abortion, a leaked sex tape, shredded clothing, slashed tires — and a prison stint for Sano after he pulled a knife on her in exasperation.
“She is the most conniving person I have ever met,” Sano said.
Two others — a successful Albany businessman who says Meanwell stalked him “for months” in 1999 and Jason Walker, once an aide to former Gov. George Pataki — echoed Sano.
“She is relentless,’’ said the businessman, whose name is being withheld.
“She was really intimidating and ingrained herself into my life.”
Meanwell, he said, cozied up to his pals at an Albany country club, staked out his home, bombarded him with e-mails and filled his answering-machine tape with messages before he hired a lawyer to stop her.
He described Meanwell as “a multiple personality, where one minute she was a nice, relatively normal person who [could] turn vindictive and evil at any point in time.”
“She was very, very persistent,” said Walker, who was working for Pataki when he dated Meanwell for two months in 2002. He said he bailed out because he couldn’t deal with her constant calls and demands for attention.
