Attorney General Eric Holder sent a memo to all employees at the Department of Justice with a very simple directive: You are not allowed to solicit prostitutes — ever.

In the memo, Holder writes that employees are not allowed to solicit prostitutes even on their free time or even in countries where it is "legal or tolerated."
