U.K. Lord Quits After Coke, Sex Scandal

John Sewel, a member of the British Parliament’s House of Lords, quit Tuesday after video was made public of him allegedly snorting cocaine off a sex worker’s chest. Sewel apologized for causing “pain and embarrassment” and said he hopes his decision “will limit and help repair the damage I have done to an institution I hold dear.” Sewel, who was caught on camera wearing a prostitute’s bra, had been chairman of the Lords Privileges and Conduct Committee.
