Let's Play "Name That Madame"
Which of the below persons got in hot water in 1990 when it was revealed that his/her apartment was being used for prostitution purposes?
a The Mayflower Madame (Sydney Biddle Barrows)
b The Hollywood Madame (Heidi Fleiss)
c The DC Madame (Deborah Jeanne Palfrey)
d Representative Barney Frank
If you took a long-shot guess and said "d", you are a winner! In 1990, Frank was reprimanded by Congress over revelations that his boyfriend was running a male escort service out of Frank's apartment while the congressman was at Capitol Hill. (Frank denied knowledge of the activity).
