Brian Ross of ABC News reported Monday morning on the mounting scandal from the records of the so-called 'DC madam.' Ross said many prominent DC figures can be found on the list of clients for the escort service, which has emerged in the course of the trial of its operator, Deborah Jeane Palfrey.
"It's a long list, we've been going through the phone records for the last four years provided for us by Jean Palfrey," Ross reported on Monday morning. "There are some very prominent people, lobbyists, lawyers, members of the military, other people in the Bush administration."
In the interest of dislosure, I will admit that, while travelling overseas in my "reckless youth", I could be considered guilty of the same thing. But then again I've long been an advocate of decriminalizing some forms of prostitution as I believe it's an honest trade. You pay, you play. But we have an administration that believe they are they moral arbitors for all Americans who are somehow uniquely suited to tell us what we can and cannot do in our bedrooms, classrooms and hospital rooms. And for that, I will be happy for each and every name that's outed. Let the fun begin.
Update [2007-4-30 12:13:49 by RandyMI]:
TPM has more details from ABC on who must now be sweating bullets.
This morning, they report that "also on Palfrey's list of customers who could be potential witnesses are a Bush administration economist, the head of a conservative think tank, a prominent CEO, several lobbyists and a handful of military officials."
