Let's hear it for hypocrisy!

The article is entitled "Senior Official Linked to Escort Service Resigns". Take a look:

Deputy Secretary of State Randall L. Tobias submitted his resignation Friday, one day after confirming to ABC News that he had been a customer of a Washington, D.C. escort service whose owner has been charged by federal prosecutors with running a prostitution operation.

Now here's the sickening part:

As the Bush administration's so-called "AIDS czar," Tobias was criticized by some for emphasizing faithfulness and abstinence over condom use to prevent the spread of AIDS.
As a top official overseeing global AIDS funding to other countries, Tobias was responsible for enforcing a U.S. policy, enacted during the Bush administration, that requires recipients to swear they oppose prostitution and sex trafficking.

These people don't really believe in sexual purity for themselves. Just for other people. The little people, that is, as Joe Sudbay points out over on AMERICAblog.
