Sometimes the Pellicano scandal gets so convoluted that I can’t make sense of every twist and turn. That’s how I feel after this latest story on The Smoking Gun– “The Man Who Bagged The Pelican” about a confidential federal witness in Los Angeles I’ve never heard of, Daniel Patterson (photo left). He’s got no Hollywood connections and hasn’t been to a movie in more than a decade, yet he was instrumental in exposing the Tinseltown P.I.’s secrets. He’s “the snitch” who provided information that led the FBI to raid Pellicano’s West Hollywood office, seize grenades and an explosive, and cart off computers containing thousands of hours of conversations now at the center of Pellicano’s racketeering and wiretapping case. Forget it, Jake. It’s Chinatown.
