Whoops, busted!

We don't want our loyal readers to think we pick on the Los Angeles Police Department when it comes to cases of corruption and malfeasance. We try to cast as wide a net as possible and appreciate your submissions and suggestions when we get them.

On that note, it came to our attention that the director of Ohio Governor Ted Strickland's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, one Robert Eric McFadden, was arrested this week for compelling prostitution involving a minor, promoting prostitution and pandering. Apparently Mr. McFadden had established a website that he used to trade information about street hookers and online escorts. According to the Columbus Dispatch, "he would recommend some prostitutes, issue warnings about others and give advice on ways to avoid law enforcement." The site included photographs McFadden took of a seventeen year old prostitute in his wife's car.

McFadden who was paid $36 an hour for his work at the Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives was transferred to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, but has subsequently been let go.
