Democrats in particular should consider themselves warned: prostitution in Denver has caused great woes for some men. Earlier this year, the IRS and the Denver police revealed they had linked Chief Federal Judge Edward Nottingham to a prostitution service. Nottingham has declined to comment and remains on the bench while the investigation continues.
In 2006, male Denver-area prostitute Mike Jones told reporters that evangelical minister and conservative star Ted Haggard had paid him to have gay sex, effectively ending Haggard's career. Haggard says Jones only gave him a massage.
