1. What's wrong with these people?
There's lots of, uh, friendly folks out there who aren't looking to be paid for, uh, sharing a good time together.

2. Fear of disease? Fear of being ratted out?
Maybe these johns are assured that the women are disease free.

Just guessing, though.

Also, these women --paid at this level-- would be less likely to rat out the johns?

3. A 'pro' isn't likely to fall in love and expect a committment.

4. A republicon. Refusing to do the honorable thing and resign. Of course.

Because lying about your whoring is the epitome of republicon family values.

From the ABC blog:
According to published reports, Judge Nottingham, appointed to the federal bench in 1989 by President George H.W. Bush, paid $300 to $400 for "all-inclusive" sex with prostitutes working for the Denver Sugar/Denver Players service
