Ann Corbitt has been with Councilmember Rasmussen's office since 2005.
British tabloids normally wouldn't care a lick about Ann Corbitt, an aide to Seattle Councilmember Tom Rasmussen. But thanks to a steamy one-night stand with soccer star Ashley Cole, the Bellingham native is now front-page news in England.
In an interview with News of the World, Corbitt describes in detail how she met, flirted with and eventually bedded the married Cole.
Corbitt says she was first introduced to Cole at The Four Seasons on Friday, July 17. He and Chelsea were playing the Sounders the next day.
That night, Corbitt says Cole flirted heavily with her. Sending her a revealing photo by text in an effort to get her to come back to his room. She didn't.
But the next night, says Corbitt, after Cole and Chelsea beat the Sounders 2-0, she met up with him again for drinks at the War Room, eventually following him to bed. And that means it's time for the nauseating details.
Cole and his wife Cheryl.
"All in all, the sex lasted three or four hours," she told us. "I was very taken aback by how intimate he was and how needy he was.
"It was like having sex with a boyfriend, someone who loves you. Ashley took my clothes off and was incredibly attentive.
"He was a creative and adventurous lover. At the end he was satisfied and so was I. He was aiming to please, not just out to satisfy himself.
"When I raised the issue of a condom Ashley acted like he was really shocked. He told me he couldn't believe I'd asked. He said having a condom would suggest he was banking on sex.
"So we carried on like that for a bit, him trying it on and me stopping him, But, in the end, we did have unprotected sex. It's the only thing about the evening that I'm ashamed about.
Cole's scandalous bed-hopping has made him a lesser, U.K. version of Tiger Woods. Which means Corbitt now has the distinction of being known as "girl no 4," the charming nickname given to her by the British press.
It's unclear exactly why Corbitt decided to spill the beans now. But her response to PubliCola's request for comment provides a clue: in an e-mail she referred them to her London press agent which would suggest she was paid for her interview, a common practice across the pond.
I've e-mailed Councilmember Rasmussen for his comment on Corbitt's extremely candid disclosure. I'll let you know what he says when I hear back.
