What's the big deal?
The demise of a call-girl ring and pending trial of an alleged madam claiming thousands of clients has the US capital riveted by the chance powerful men may now be caught with their trousers down, with a senior state department official apparently first to fall.
... Friday, the U.S. State Department announced that Randall Tobias, the embattled head of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), was resigning for unspecified personal reasons.
It's also alleged that former U. S. Naval Commander Harlan Ullman, co-developer of the military "shock and awe" tactics, was a customer.
Deborah Jean Palfrey, aka the D.C. Madam, has denied she ran a prostitution ring. Her company, Pamela Martin and Associates, was simply a "high-end adult fantasy firm which offered legal sexual and erotic services across the spectrum of adult sexual behavior and did so without incident during its 13 year tenure."
There you go, Ms. Palfrey's employees did not have sexual relations with those clients and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Their bodies, yheir choices.
Even if she's lied, no one's died.
