Is Arcuri cashing in on relationship with Boris Johnson?

TV interview: It has been alleged that Jennifer Arcuri is charging six-figure sums for appearances and here she is on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

Jennifer Arcuri, the woman implicated in the Boris Johnson ‘conflict of interest’ scandal, is apparently cashing in on her new notoriety.

According to The Guardian, a US lawyer claiming to act on behalf of Arcuri said he was inviting media outlets, including British publications, to bid six-figure sums for an interview with her.

It seems ITV’s Good Morning Britain may have coughed up that kind of cash – for all the good it did. Ms Arcuri appeared, but refused to say anything indicative about her relationship with Mr Johnson.

The latest development in the scandal is a claim that the prime minister, as Mayor of London, wrote a letter of recommendation for Ms Arcuri to get a job as head of a technology quango called Tech City.

She was a 27-year-old student when she applied for the £100,000-a-year job in 2012 – and didn’t get it.

She has claimed that Mr Johnson did not help her at all, although in an email leaked to The Guardian, she allegedly later wrote: “I still have the letter of rec from Boris. hahaha. To think that we asked him to write us a recommendation for the CEO of Tech City is just hysterical.”

The US businesswoman accompanied Mr Johnson on three overseas trade missions led by the then mayor, after initially being turned down for two of them. Her companies were also awarded £126,000 of public money.

Now it seems she is getting the same kind of cash for five minutes saying nothing worth hearing on national television.

It seems her relationship with BoJob is still paying off.
