DC Madam not going down alone

By Libby

Well, it's a new scandal every hour inside the Beltway. This one is sort of amusing and for a change of pace it's about sex and not corruption, although it does come with a healthy dose of hypocrisy.
Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias submitted his resignation Friday, one day after confirming to ABC News that he had been a customer of a Washington, D.C. escort service whose owner has been charged by federal prosecutors with running a prostitution operation.

...A State Department press release late Friday afternoon said only he was leaving for "personal reasons." On Thursday, Tobias told ABC News he had several times called the "Pamela Martin and Associates" escort service "to have gals come over to the condo to give me a massage." Tobias, who is married, said there had been "no sex," and that recently he had been using another service "with Central Americans" to provide massages.

...As the Bush administration's so-called "AIDS czar," Tobias was criticized for emphasizing faithfulness and abstinence over condom use to prevent the spread of AIDS.
Ever notice that the self-proclaimed moral conservatives are always caught at whatever they rail the loudest against? It's like they're trying to save their souls by "protecting" others from their own percieved failings.

Meanwhile, now that ABC has the little black book, I can't wait to see who else turns up in those thousands of phone numbers.
