D.C.-Area Escorts Offer Free Services to Congress for Vote on Climate Bill

As the 40th anniversary of Earth Day approaches, Congress is heating up over debate around the proposed Kerry-Graham-Lieberman Bill, which would establish sweeping federal energy and climate legislation.

As tensions rise, high-end escorts in the greater Capitol Beltway area have offered their services for free to any member of Congress who votes in favor of the bi-partisan effort on the part of Senators John Kerry (D-MA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Joseph Lieberman (I-CT) that hopes to spur clean energy growth and create green jobs.

Mary Walters, who is the proprietor of a well-known escort service in the Washington, D.C. area, first announced that her company would not charge when she noticed environmental issues taking a back-seat in the political process to health care reform, which recently passed Congress in historic fashion.

Walters, cousin of the late Deborah Jeane Palfrey, the so-called “D.C. Madam,” drew inspiration from Danish colleagues who pledged a similar show of support during the U.N. climate talks held in Copenhagen last December.

Many analysts have predicted the demise of the Kerry-Graham-Lieberman Bill after the tragic death of the Waxman-Markey Bill last year, which divided lawmakers neatly down party lines regarding American priorities and responsibilities towards to the global climate crisis.

“We always see how political name-calling and back-and-forths get us nowhere, and we just want to do what we could to help the environment,” said Walters in a recent interview.

“You can’t get a politician to change his mind by talking his ear off in a stuffy room in the Senate,” she added. “But, then again, there are some things we still need to figure out how to do outside of the bedroom.”
