    Should all the names of the clients be made public? With the criteria that they are confirmed.

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Either hang them all out, or no one (anything else would be pretty unfair).

    How would it be in the public interest anyways?


    And isn't it potentially career destroying. What would be the gain?

    @snee

    I think that if it's a public employee that leads a policy that is counter to what they do themself then it's in the public interest to know.

    example

    Former U.S. AID director Randall Tobias, who resigned upon admitting that he frequented a Washington escort service, oversaw a controversial policy advocated by the religious right that required any US-based group receiving anti-AIDS funds to take an anti-prostitution “loyalty oath.”

    In combating aids they required abstinence only and no education about condoms. Prostitution must be stamped out, not dealt with realistically.


    Joe average should not be named

    Was he a US-based group recieving anti-aids funding then?
    And, who is going to decide what makes it justifiable to name someone? The media? You? A committé of right-thinking individuals? Sounds like a can of worms to me.

    receiving? no.....he was in charge of applying the rules that denied funding to combat AIDS to groups that worked with prostitutes. While at the same time he was using prostitutes.

    just to let you know, although I wouldn't visit one myself I think prostitution should be legalised and controlled. This would make combating disease easier and greatly reduce activity in residential areas. IMO

    We have several states where the names of men caught curb crawling are published in the local media. Why should "high level" public servants be protected ? especially if they publicly advocate prostitution as being immoral and should remain illegal.

    A "CIA operative" fits the definition of "public employee".

    If it occurs Valerie Plame gave in to, say, a latent lesbian inclination somewhere along the line, should this Deborah Palfrey be indicted before Pat Fitzgerald's grand jury and tried?

    Just curious.

    Perhaps I should narrow the definition down to public employees that are involved in policy making or carrying out those policies.

    Should the name of that straw man be made public? Where is there any mention of convicting these people? The thread is about if the names should be made public once confirmed.

    I make the case for people such as Tobias because of the nature of his position. I don't really care if he uses hookers. I make no case as to if he should have been fired, he chose to resign (or was asked to).

    What I would say that any cops on the list would be candidates for naming. Firemen, no.

    I'm curious. If your for legalizing prostitution why would you care who is on the list other than to see people whom you dont agree with politically taken down...no pun intended?
