"There are thousands of names, tens of thousands of phone numbers, and there are people there at the Pentagon, lobbyists, others at the White House, prominent lawyers — a long, long list, and as well, the women who work for the service, David, include university professors, legal secretaries, scientists, military officers."

Although after six years of Bush-rule nothing shocks me, this scandal has the potential to take down a lot of prominent people, and this is just the beginning. By refusing to accept the plea bargain offered to her, Jeane Palfrey is going to trial and naming names. Could this be the call service that "Dusty" Foggo was allegedly getting his party favors from? Which White House employees are involved? Which Pentagon officials, lobbyists and prominent lawyers are we talking about here?

If Bill Clinton's impeachment taught us anything, it's that the American people have an insatiable appetite for sex scandals. Can't wait to see where this one goes. And how ironic is it that the man charged with combating worldwide prostitution just resigned because of his fetish for prostitutes?
