Vitter is the first elected official to be identified as a client of the alleged prostitution ring. Earlier this year, a high-level diplomat resigned after his name was linked to the scandal in an ABC News report based on phone records that covered 2003 to 2006.

The federal judge hearing Jeanne Palfrey’s criminal case had barred the accused madam from releasing any additional records.

“The disk – containing a full set of the telephone records for the 13 year operational history of ‘Pamela Martin & Associates’ – already has been pirated,” ……………..READ FULL STORY http://blogs.usatoday.com/ondeadline/2007/07/accused-dc-mada.html

AMSTERDAM — Starting next week, you’ll still be able to legally smoke a joint in the famously relaxed coffee shops of Amsterdam — but for a cigarette, you’ll have to step outside.The new law prohibits smoking in bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs to protect people from secondhand tobacco smoke. It is similar to bans that have swept across Europe since Ireland made pubs smoke-free in 2004, as well as restrictions across the USA.

Though new to the industry, the ring took in more than $1 million in barely three years, dispatching more than 50 prostitutes in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Paris and London to rendezvous, the federal authorities allege. In the process, the ring unwittingly did what Wall Street titans and political foes could not: bring down Mr. Spitzer. For all the weighty consequences of its operation, the Emperor’s Club had a homespun quality.

Its boss was Mark Brener, 62. He dealt with a stack of medical bills for his late wife by starting the escort service, an idea that dawned on him several years ago as he surveyed sex-related advertisements in the weekly newspaper The Village Voice, an associate of Mr. Brener’s said.
