And she has elicited the help of ABC News to do it, turning over 46 pounds of phone records, a stack about a foot high, with the names of "thousands and thousands" of clients that, Palfrey promises, reach "high into the echelons of power in the United States."Palfrey, 50, hopes the maneuver will produce witnesses for her legal defense, since none of her patrons have come forward voluntarily.But her strategy has led to one revelation that ended a top-level career and left official Washington with the feeling that more are to come. Tobias, a deputy secretary of State and the Bush administration's "AIDS czar," abruptly resigned late last week after acknowledging to ABC that he had used Palfrey's service, "but only to have gals come over to the condo to give me a massage." Tobias, who oversaw global AIDS funding, was in charge of enforcing a controversial policy that required groups to sign a pledge denouncing prostitution and sex trafficking in order to receive federal HIV/AIDS prevention money. District Court, Palfrey said she was "genuinely sorry" about outing Tobias, a 65-year-old married father of four.But the five-term Utah Republican and powerful chairman of the House oversight committee shocked Washington on Wednesday when he announced he would not seek reelection in 2018 or run for any other political office that year in order to spend more time with his family.

His focus was on getting back to his dreams and slumbers."I didn't want to go down at that hour. I called our deputy chairman and got him to go downtown," said Stewart.

Senator and a Hollywood actor, concocted a theory that democrats worked with Woolston-Smith to entrap the five men arrested for breaking into the DNC offices."It was ridiculous, but I don't blame Thompson for going there. He and the Republicans quickly dropped that theory because it became clear that was not what happened," said Stewart.
