RE: Pretty woman, the kind lobbyists like to meet.
Quote:North Carolina’s State Ethics Committee has just opened up a major problem for their state — they just made it legal for lobbying firms to purchase prostitutes to service politicians. The Committee’s determination that sex had no value and that sex between a lobbyist and politician was nothing to report or in any way questionable means that a major loophole has opened up for lobbying firms. Now lobbying firms can hire people with the explicit goal to seduce and fornicate with politicians in order to garner favor.

I wish you'd stop doing that, Brian.

RE: Pretty woman, the kind lobbyists like to meet.
From the letter they link to:
"However, a lobbyist or lobbyist principal’s provision of paid prostitution services by a third party to a designated individual could constitute a gift or thing of value, albeit an illegal one, depending on the particular facts."[1]

Ie the ruling is that lobbyists themselves are allowed to sleep with politicians, but not as a paid prostitution service.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

So these puritans condemn sex, yet replicate the tactics of Caligula.

Don't get me wrong, I am not for any type of payola sex involved or not. I am for regulated prostitution where consent is involved. But payola is payola and this is simply another form of exploitation. Republicans and religion are the biggest hypocrites.

He meant making a thread with just a hyperlink. Put at least a quote from the article.

No - this is DLJ we're talking about. He meant quit dissing the honorable act of the gift of sex. Yes

Revs was right but ... yeah... that too.

But, Brian, I agree with you regarding the hypocrisy.

Yes

RE: Pretty woman, the kind lobbyists like to meet.
I don't get the jump from "lobbyists can have sex with politicians" to "lobbyists can hire prostitutes".

Whomever wrote that link just made all that up.
