Attorney General Holder reminds Justice Department employees: Don't solicit prostitutes

Today in "memos you wish you didn't need to send," Attorney General Eric Holder penned a reminder to all Department of Justice employees that soliciting prostitutes is a no-no.

"I want to reiterate to all Department personnel, including attorneys and law enforcement officers, that they are prohibited from soliciting, procuring, or accepting commercial sex," Holder writes. "This rule applies at all times…including while off duty or on personal leave."

NPR reports that the memo was sent ahead of next week's House Oversight and Judiciary Committees' hearings on "federal agents gone wild," stemming from reports that found Drug Enforcement agents enjoyed "sex parties" in Colombia with drug cartel-paid prostitutes.
