SO WE HAVE THE VICTORIANS’ VICES WITHOUT THEIR VIRTUES: Rep. Franks resigning after discussing surrogacy with female staff. “Due to my familiarity and experience with the process of surrogacy, I clearly became insensitive as to how the discussion of such an intensely personal topic might affect others.” Either there’s a lot more to this story, or we’ve really gone crazy.

UPDATE: Ah, the initial bare-bones story has been updated to indicate that he asked them to be surrogates for him and his wife. Still, not exactly Harvey Weinstein stuff.
