DC Madam Leaves Viewers Limp

ABC’s much hyped 20/20 exclusive interview with “DC Madam” Deborah Jeane Palfrey was rumored to be chock full of names of powerful Washington area men, but as ABC’s Brian Ross reports,

The phone numbers also track back to Georgetown mansions and prominent CEOs, officials at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and lobbyists both Republican and Democratic.
