“Government official caught breaking law” is not the rarest of headlines, but today’s taxpayer-funded crook should at least get a few points for ostentatious style. The AP reports:

WASHINGTON – A State Department official accepted free flights to Las Vegas with exotic dancers, expensive meals, hotel rooms in New York and other bribes to speed up the visa process for a jewelry company, federal prosecutors said Friday.

But the best part is that Michael John O’Keefe was flown to Vegas with “two exotic dancers,” federal prosecutors said.

Wow. Taking your own strippers to the stripper capital of the world … that is pimpin’.
