Politician's Excuse of the Week

Peter Allan, an Australian elected official, has resigned from office following reports that he visited a local brothel and then charged it to the taxpayers. His defense? He didn't know it was a brothel. He thought it was a strip club!:
"It was nine years ago, I don't remember exactly what happened," he said. "I went in with two other guys, they asked for two strippers and that's all I'm prepared to say."

"I didn't participate in anything other than that. We were only there for 20 minutes, there was no intercourse or anything like that."

But a spokeswoman for the centre said they did not offer stripper services.

The studio's website says it is "Canberra's largest brothel with the biggest choice of ladies".
