Authorities in Texas took to the Internet to nab seven men accused of arranging to pay for sex in north Harris County during an undercover prostitution sting Thursday.
One of the suspects is Joseph Francis Andolino, a 59-year-old senior vice president with Halliburton.
I guess fracking really does create jobs.
Strip Joints and Prostitutes: Here’s what America’s Natural Gas Alliance did for you today
UPDATE: I have to remind you that strippers who move into an area to service the oilfield mafia are included in the jobs numbers. CNN Money: Drilling into big oil’s big job claims.
It includes everyone from the roughneck in North Dakota drilling a new oil well, to a trucker driving equipment to that oil job site, to jobs created by the spending of those oil workers, such as a clerk at a Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500) or a stripper serving the workers drawn to one of those North Dakota oil boomtowns.

So you are saying the natural gas industry is going to stick it to those of is in the gas patch one way or the other.
Yeah. Looks like it.
You definitely don’t hear a lot about the negatives of oil boom up here. Housing is crazy expensive and hard to find, schools and police are swamped. And, it’s tough to find people to fill these positions (police) when the oil fields pay three times as much. Our awesome “media” leaves a few things out.
