"I think I'm big enough to play the game"

"I think I'm big enough to play the game" says Australian Parliament member Barry Haase, referring to his "purchase" for a day by brothel owner Mary-Anne Kenworthy (heh heh, she said 'member'). Auctioned to the highest bidder (he fetched $1000Australian) at the local Rotary Club charity auction, Haase will perform such duties as cleaning the brothel in a "frilly apron" and conducting a tour of the premises. Wonder if he'll wear anything besides what the proprietress' called her "tour hat"...

Stay tuned for the "When Parliament Members Go Wild" DVD.

Apparently Sir Les Patterson has had a name change.

A politician in a whorehouse? Toooo easy.

So when's that gonna happen here in the US? I'd think that Shrub would *jump* at the chance to be a slave for a day. At least he could get out from under Uncle Cheney's thumb...

I don't believe they paid him, more he offered himself up for a charity auction at the local Rotary club, and the owner of the brothel was the highest bidder.

You know he had to be cringing with every bid she put in.
