“Gals come over to the condo to give me a massage”


In yet another show of the upstanding moral values the Bush Administration claims to prize, Deputy Secretary of State Randall Tobias resigned Friday, after confirming he had been a customer of a DC escort service run by Jeane Palfrey, the “DC Madam” currently facing federal prostitution charges.

Tobias, 65, director of U.S. Foreign Assistance and administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), had previously served as the ambassador for the President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief.

A State Department press release late Friday afternoon said only he was leaving for “personal reasons.”

No doubt to spend more time with his family.

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. 

So, no chiropracter, no licensed massage therapist, no physical therapy…. no, this was a backache that needed that little something extra that only a prostitute, or Central American “gal” of dubious immigration status, could provide, likely at a premium price. Heckuva job, Tobias!

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.
