Deborah Jeane Palfrey, a.k.a. the “D.C. Madam” trial, on federal charges of prostitution-related racketeering and money laundering, is set to begin in April. Palfrey’s “Pamela Martin & Associates” escort service boasted some 10,000 clients, including Sen. David Vitter, a family-values Republican from Louisiana.
Deputy Secretary of State Randall Tobias, an anti-prostitution crusader, resigned last year after admitting he was also a Palfrey client. He insisted that he received only massages, not sex.
