Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI is “investigating whether two contractors implicated in the bribery of former Rep. Randall ‘Duke’ Cunningham supplied him with prostitutes and free use of a limousine and hotel suites.” The Journal also said the investigators are exploring “whether any other members of Congress” are involved.
Last night on MSNBC’s Scarborough Country, Dean Calbreath of the San Diego Union Tribune – which recently won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the Cunningham case – said that “as many as a half a dozen” members of Congress could ultimately be implicated in the prostitution scandal.
When Democrats get into scandals, it's about sex. When Republicans get into scandals, it's about money. And power. And, apparently, also sex (but not blowjobs).
But hey, at least it's never about murder:
Ed Rogers, GOP lobbyist on Hardball: Sure. Look, this is going to come out. Nobody is going to keep it a secret. Jack Abramoff is so radioactive—I've got Jack Abramoff fatigue already. I mean, good grief, he didn't kill anybody. Maybe that one guy in Florida.
There you have it, folks: Republican "valyews." Aren't you glad we've put those nasty Clinton blowjob days behind us?
