Jessica Cutler and the identity of her sex partners
The picture to the left is Robert Steinbuch, who was one of Jessica Cutler’s six sex partners. Below is the write-up about him found at TaxTalkToday:
Robert Steinbuch serves the Internal Revenue Service as the Deputy Senior Counselor to the Commissioner. As such, he is an advisor to the Senior Counselor and assists the Senior Counselor in communicating the goals and policies of the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner. Additionally, Robert oversees the Office of the Director of Practice and works on the revision of Circular 230, 31 C.F.R. 10, (the rules governing practice before the I.R.S.)
Robert joined the IRS in July 2000, and since April of 2001, serves as the Special Counsel to the Webster Commission on FBI Security, assisting the Federal Government in its ongoing review of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Prior to joining the Internal Revenue Service, Robert spent four years as a Trial and Appellate Attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice, Commercial Litigation Branch. As a Justice Department Attorney, Robert was responsible for a wide variety of cases in both trial and appellate court and served as the lead counsel on a principal Winstar-related savings and loan case. His private sector experience includes three years in practice with the New York office of one of the largest international law firms. Robert has also been an Associate Professorial Lecturer in Law at the George Washington University School of Law, teaching legal writing and analysis. Beginning in the Fall of 1994, and through Summer 1995, Robert served as a Judicial Clerk for the Honorable Paul H. Roney, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.
Robert holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Masters of Arts in Political Theory from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He earned his law degree at the Columbia University School of Law in New York. Robert received several honors and distinctions both at Penn and Columbia. He has published in both the New York City Law Review and the New York Law Journal. He is originally from New York and currently makes his home in Maryland.
Very amusingly, the above comes from a page about a continuing professional education course entitled “Ethics: Our Responsibility” in which Mr. Steinbuch is one of the instructors. The irony!
What a waste of a Columbia law degree. With a Columbia law degree he could be making the big bucks at a private law firm, but instead he’s slaving away at a government salary that’s probably only in the five figures.
Other bloggers have wondered if this is the same Robert Steinbuch as the one who now works as a lawyer for the Senate Judiciary Committee (link) and for Senator Mike DeWine, R-Ohio (who is a member of the Judiciary Committee). Yes, it’s the same person. Robert Steinbuch is a pretty unusual name, what’s the chance that there are two Robert Steinbuchs, both with the middle initial E, both working in Washington, both from New York, and both living in the same house in Bethesda Maryland (purchased in 1998 for $283,500)? Not very likely.
In his off-duty life he “likes spanking. (Both giving and receiving.)” Jessica and Robert “have nasty sex like animals.” Jessica writes:
So it turns out that RS cannot finish with a condom on. He can barely stay hard. So he ends up taking it off and humping away at me. Maybe I forgot to tell him that I'm on the Pill. Note to self...
I also learned that he was a cop, so he has scary police shit like handcuffs in his closet. He implied that we would be using them next time, which is intriguing, but I know I'm going to get scared and panicky. (Which would probably turn him on.)
It should be noted that Mr. Steinbuch wasn’t a real cop, but rather an auxiliary police officer.
Jessica also writes:
RS just called again. Bad news: the rumor has spread to other offices. This is bad.
The whole country knows about it now.
As Jessica Cutler puts it, this guy is a “nobody.” Is it fair to make a public spectacle of him and publish so much information about his private life?
This post contains nothing but an aggregation of data that was already available on the internet before Jessica Cutler started writing her blog, plus some posts from her blog which are also publicly available. I wasn’t the first blogger to post this information or to post his photo. To preserve Robert Steinbuch’s privacy, I have not linked to the web pages that contain his home address and “unlisted” home phone number.
This could be the lead-in for an interesting essay about privacy in the internet age. How much of your personal information is on the internet?
Thanks are owed to this post at Destiny-land, which led me to the page about Robert Steinbuch being an ethics instructor. Destiny-land also contains other interesting information so is well worth reading. Make sure you click on the link at the bottom of the page about Mike DeWine being “incredibly short”, it’s hilarious.
Thanks again to the I Love Jenna Bush blog for pointing me to Destiny-land. The I Love Jenna Bush blog is brilliant comedy, even though some people don’t get it and think that Ricky Vandal, the guy running the blog, is serious. It would actually be a real shame if a no-talent like Jessica Cutler gets a job in the book publishing industry (as she says is her goal in her interview with Richard Leiby) ahead of people like Ricky Vandal.
For that matter, I too deserve a better job (actually, any job at the moment, because I’m currently not working for an employer). I’d even take Steinbuch’s Senate Judiciary Committee job, although I think I’d prefer a job in the private sector so I don’t have to leech off of the taxpayer.

What about some of the other sex partners mentioned in Jessica Cutler’s Washingtonienne blog? Let’s talk about F and W. F is the “Chief of Staff at one of the gov agencies, appointed by Bush” and W is the “sugar daddy who wants nothing but anal.”
Jessica mentions RS and MD in her blog, and they have been identified as Robert Steinbuch and Matt Doyle (according to Jeremy Wahlman’s blog). If Jessica were truly trying to hide the identities of her sex partners, she sure didn’t do a very good job of it.
It’s likely that W and F can also be accurately identified by their initials. It is my guess that Jessica would be using the initial of the first name and not the last name. The last initial just seems too impersonal. She also may think that it’s easier to look someone up by last name than by first name, so she is doing a better job of disguising their identities by using their first initials. Ha.
F is the easier of the two to find. All we have to do is find a “Chief of Staff” appointed by President Bush whose first name begins with F, and we have found him. There is only one such person listed at results.gov. That person is Frank Jimenez, the Chief of Staff at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Frank worked for Bush’s brother in Florida before being appointed to his job in Washington. Frank was born in 1964 (which makes him 39 or 40), and has a law degree from the prestigious Yale University. For those who don’t know, Yale is considered the #1 law school, even ahead of Harvard. Why is a smart guy like him paying $400 for sex? Robert Steinbuch, who went to a lesser law school, gets kinkier sex for free.
There are also two Chiefs of Staff whose last names begin with F: John Flaherty at the Department of Transportation and Joseph Flynn at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (our tax dollars are paying for what?). I don’t think either of these are Jessica’s F for the reasons I outlined above, but I mention them to be inclusive.
W is more difficult to find because his job isn’t identified, only that he’s a “sugar daddy” and his “place” is in Georgetown. I had a hunch that W was a big shot lawyer, so I looked up all the lawyers in DC at martindale.com (this database doesn’t list all lawyers, only the big shot lawyers) whose names begin with W, I only found three in the appropriate age range, and none of them live in Georgetown.
There really aren’t that many people whose first names begin with W. All you have to do is find everyone who has a place in Georgetown whose first name begins with W, and you might wind up with a pretty short list.
W isn’t a very common first initial. I figure that someone old enough to be a “sugar daddy” might be in his late 40s or early 50s, which means he was born in the 1950s. If you check the list of popular baby names for the 1950s, you see that the only real popular name beginning with W is William, and the kind of William who would pay for anal sex would probably call himself Bill. After William, you have to go down to number 43 on the list to get to Wayne, and past that you find even more unlikely names like Warren, Wesley, and Wendell.
There’s also the possibility that W refers to his middle initial, and Jessica’s reference to him as W is a humorous take on the fact that the President is also called W. However, I don’t get the impression that Jessica’s sense of humor is that subtle, so this is unlikely.
