Director of US Foreign Assistance "retires" due to prostitution scandal
POSTED ON 5/02/2007 | PERMALINK |0 Comments | BOOKMARK
Randall Tobias retired from his position as Director of U. S. Foreign Assistance and Administrator for the U. S. Agency for international Development (USAID) after being implicated in a prostitution scandal. The irony is that Tobias was the chief enforcer and mouthpiece of the Anti-Prostitution Pledge, which requires USAID grantees, among others, to denounce prostitutes - the very people whom they are trying to empower and serve.
You can learn a more about this topic by watching "Taking the Pledge", a 13-minute film about sex workers and the problems created by the 'anti-prostitution pledge' required to receive USAID and PEPFAR funds.
