And Now to ABC's Expert on Pimps and Hos, Bare Lee Legal

If you're like me, you're on the edge of your seat waiting for ABC News to out more people who have asked the DC Madam for, uh, a helping hand. You know, people like Bush's abstinence czar. Of course, outing people who use the services of sex workers raises some serious privacy issues. And when the outer is an (alleged) sex worker, it raises some serious integrity issues as well. So what do the hos think about this, I'm sure you're asking. Good question. Fortunately, they've started a new blog to cover the scandal and other issues. It's aptly titled,

From their opening post:

In the story of alleged DC Madam, Deborah Jean Palfrey, one voice is conspicuously absent: ours, and our lips are, despite what you may have heard, hardly sealed.

We’re a group of educated, Internet-savvy, politically-game escorts, and we aren’t for hire. (Not here, anyway.) We’re apparently the exception to the rule, but for us, this is just business as usual. Of course, rich and powerful men want access to erotic companionship. Of course, Washington is a hotbed of hypocrisy. We know this not because we’ve been privy to really fantastic pillowtalk, which some of us have, but because we work the halls of government by day, as well.

We want to talk to you, but we might have to do it in private. We might have to do it in the dark. We might not be able to tell you our real names, but that doesn’t mean we have to be quiet about it, either.

We’re Deepthroated, bound, maybe, but certainly not gagged. And here, we’re going to go down- and dirty on Washington.
