    Sad story. We used to tell the new generals that they should think of every action they took in terms of what it would look like on the front page of the Washington Post. This one must have forgotten that. Pretty sad too when part of his defense is that he didn’t go to just any strip club, but a high class one.

    One of the commenters on the Post page said it’s easier to get in trouble with a government credit card than anything else–I helped develop policy for those when I worked at DA–he’s right. I keep thinking this reminds me of the Secret Service folks we heard about a few years ago.

      Unfortunately conduct with the government credit cards took a nose dive when several of the most egregious offenders became the accounts’ watchdogs in the late 90s.
