Confronted with the fact that his name and phone number appeared on a list of clients of "D.C. madam" Deborah Jeane Palfrey, Deputy Secretary of State
Randall Tobias told ABC News that arranging for women to visit his condo was like ordering pizza.
What it wasn't like: The behavior Tobias pushed through an
abstinence-first program and an anti-prostitution pledge while working as George W. Bush's global AIDS coordinator.
Tobias, who is married, resigned Friday for "personal reasons." He's insisting that there was "no sex" involved when "gals" would "come over to the condo to give me a massage."
