A federal judge in Florida has bought the destruction of video that presumably shows New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft paying for massage parlor sex, according to court documents.
U.S. District Judge Rodolfo A.

Kraft’s lawyers had argued that the billionaire feared the tapes of him in the nude would be publicized on the web.
