Great, now we will have endless sounds bites explaining some Evangelical Republican definition of what "sex" is... to be followed by weeks of sermons by Mitt the Mormon on extra-marital affairs --
And now this...
WASHINGTON: Randall Tobias, head of the Bush administration's foreign aid programs, abruptly resigned after his name surfaced in an investigation into a high-priced call-girl ring, said two people in a position to know the circumstances of his departure.
It was Tobias' own decision to resign Friday, according to one of the people, who said the issue came up only in the past day or so. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still under way.
Tobias submitted his resignation a day after he was interviewed by ABC News for an upcoming program about an alleged prostitution service run by the so-called D.C. Madam.
ABC reported on its Web site late Friday that Tobias confirmed that he had called the Pamela Martin and Associates escort service to have women come to his condo and give him massages. More recently, Tobias told the network, he has been using a service with Central American women.
Tobias, 65, who is married, told ABC there had been "no sex" during the women's visits to his condo.
I'd have more to say but I can't stop laughing... (I'm also out of time tonight) - Conservatives are free to stammer and sputter some spin on this, but regardless -- this administration seems determined to do its darndest to get a Democrat elected to the White House next November.... and for once in the last 7 years, much to their chagrin I'm sure, they're actually succeeding at something.
UPDATE I: Although the link to Tobias' bio page at the USAID.gov website retuns a "file not found" error this cached copy of the bio page dated Apr 22, 2007 22:23:03 GMT reports Tobias is a Deputy Secretary of State who reports directly to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
He was confirmed as USAID Administrator by the U.S. Senate on March 29, 2006 and sworn in on March 31, 2006. He continues to report to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and holds the rank of Deputy Secretary of State.
Update II: Tobias checks out Connie's legs
(AP) U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice smiles after announcing that Ambassador Randall Tobias has been named to coordinate the Bush administration's $18 billion foreign aid programs and make them more effective.
