D.C. running low on free condoms

By Washington Post editors

D.C. officials have been struggling to supply condoms to non-profit organizations that partner with the city to battle HIV/AIDS, D.C. Wire reports.

Michael Kharfen, a spokesman for the D.C. Department Health, said the city's supplier of Durex condoms recently withheld an expected shipment due to "billing issues from a previous invoice."

Advocates say the city has failed to pay its bill on time. But Kharfen said the delay is a result of "paperwork" related to a "previous payment." He expects the problem to be resolved within days.

Frankly I don't think it's DC's job to supply free condoms. I love how as a society it has come to point where if the government doesn't provide it, people won't use it. If people can't control their sexual activity on their own, then forget them. They suffer the consequences.

With all of the politicans caught cheeting they are probably steeling the condoms for themselves.

jsuf, not only is there an entitlement attitude in DC, they also want bigger condoms. So it's free AND big.
