A gentleman named Javier Rodrigo de Santos was the vice-mayor of Palma de Mallorca between late 2005 and May 2007. He had access to a municipal credit card. So he spent his nights at Palma's gay brothels and charged up €45,000 worth of male prostitutes. And you've got to figure those rentboys ain't working for no five grand an hour, either. He got caught because some accountant noticed that all those credit card charges had been rung up at four in the morning. Mr. de Santos has been charged with embezzlement. Top that, New York.
