Media from around the world cited Frank Parlato for his pioneering expose on NXIVM, the sex cult that branded women. Make no mistake about it, Parlato broke the story that led to the arrest and conviction of the leaders of this sinister cult. Over 400 media outlets named Parlato, not only in the USA, but the  UK, Canada, Mexico, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Israel, Switzerland, Italy, Venezuela, China and more. Here are excerpts:

New York Times: Many of Mr. Raniere’s followers learned of the secret society from a website run by a Buffalo-area businessman, Frank R. Parlato Jr. Mr. Parlato had been locked in a long legal battle with two sisters, Sara and Clare Bronfman, who are members of Nxivm and the daughters of Edgar Bronfman, the deceased chairman of Seagram Company.

The Daily Mail: According to Frank Parlato, who first exposed Allison Mack as a member of Nxivm, the actress was a ‘pimp’ for Keith Raniere and was responsible for bringing young women to his ‘secret sex lair’, a two-floor house in Albany, New York with a huge bed and a hot tub.
