Labour MP Keith Vaz has announced that he will resign from the Home Affairs Select Committee after a Daily Mirror sting recorded the married member of parliament meeting multiple men identified as male prostitutes in his apartment.
The Daily Mirror says Vaz asked the men to "bring poppers," a sex-enhancing drug. Text messages published by the Daily Mirror reportedly show Vaz sending "don't forget the poppers" to one of the men. The MP reportedly offered to cover the cost of coc aine for the escorts, but declined to take any himself.
. . .
Vaz is currently chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, and is overseeing a shake-up of the UK's laws on prostitution as well as an investigation into harm caused by coc aine.
Vaz's backing for the 42-day terrorist detention without charge "was seen as crucial by the Government."
The MP for Leicester East had opposed government attempts to criminalise the drug. Ministers later announced they would remain within the law.

I never understood his merits. What the f*** enabled him to stay at the top for so long? He cocked up (pun intended) many, many times and never appeared to have a defined political ideology. What did he actually stand for?
It's kinda prurient to be gloating over the way he's come to a sticky end lol
He practically supported Sharia in the UK and was often implicated in business-based corruption. All of that's A-OK and he finally falls on his sword over rent boys. What a world.
This man has annoyed me several times. I'm not surprised he has secrets that he could easily be blackmailed over. Time to look back at his decisions and ask how many were made under pressure of blackmail.
