Escort Service Hard Ball: Palfrey 1, DC Politicos 0

Randall L. Tobias

Did you see who was the first to fall from grace when Deborah Jeane Palfrey, accused DC Madam, gave her confidential call girl contacts list to ABC News? None other than Randall L. Tobias, the deputy secretary of state responsible for U.S. foreign aid. The WashPost says:

On Friday, Randall L. Tobias resigned as deputy secretary of state one day after confirming to Brian Ross of ABC that he had patronized the Pamela Martin firm.

Speaking yesterday on “Good Morning America,” Ross said Tobias told him Tobias’s number was on Palfrey’s phone records because he had called “to have gals come over to the condo to give me a massage.” There had been “no sex,” Ross quoted Tobias as saying, and that recently he has used another service, “with Central American gals,” for massages.

Now that was smart of Mr. Tobais. As the director of President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, he learned that the best way to practice safe sex is not to have sex. Now he knows the best way to practice safe politics is not to practice call girl massages.

The question is, who is next to get the call? Palfrey gave her list of 10,000 to 15,000 phone numbers to ABC News for free and ABC is expected to air a report on Palfrey and her clients on “20/20” on May 4, during sweeps.

I for one, can’t wait to see who is next…

    Typical hypocrisy from this administration and its cronies.

    I have a feeling the next few weeks are going to be lawn-chair-and-popcorn kind of weeks as the news comes out about all the moral majority folks who secretly engage in the activities they publicly condemn. WTOP said that at least 5 lawyers have contacted ABC about having their clients’ names obscured from the disclosure.

    This is going to be more than “moral majority folk” that are going to get burned by this. This woman has been around for so long, it is going to be a truly bipartisan “lawn-chair-and-popcorn” affair.

    In every group of people as large as a presidential administration or Congress, there are going to be some people of questionable character.

    I don’t necessarily think it’s of questionable character to make sex into a business transaction. That’s between you and your God if you decide to get involved in it. Not everyone’s going to have the same moral value set regarding sexuality. That’s why I find the moral majority folks particularly lawn-chair-and-popcorn-worthy.
