Your boy, Paul Ryan's, qualifies (at least in his own mind).

Isn't that being rather unfair to whores?

No, that's not soup yet. I'm referring to an actual budget from prior years.

Well at least a whore gives you something for your money, in fact she may even give you more than you bargained for.

Merci mon vieux, I recall being in NYC on business during one of those police work-to-rule events back in the seventies, if memory serves. I was at the Hilton on 54th and had gone up the street to Eddie Condon's for a couple of drinks and hopefully some music. On the way back to the hotel this very attractive black girl asked if she could come back to my hotel with me. I said I was afraid not and she asked why so I showed her my wedding ring. She said "But honey, she will never know" to which I replied "No, but I will".

Well next thing I know she is in the revolving door, same section as me, still trying to make a sale. But she stayed in the door and went right back out. Then I spotted one of the Hotel staff, probably the detective, standing there so I asked him "What was that?", pointing over my shoulder. He said "Sir, it is the policy of Hilton Hotels that guests enjoy their stay, and you were obviously not interested." I guess she knew the staff, but it was all rather amusing.

I have generally found that they are very nice and industrious.
