Co-conspirator's possible links to prostitutes eyed

I'm speechless. For once a political scandal has left me utterly without words: most of the folks under investigation are Republicans, and most of them campaigned against Democratic Congressional corruption scandals in 1994. And now they seem to be in a contest to one-up even that utterly corrupt gang of thieves.

But not even the most flagrantly corrupt Democrat ever tried to influence policy in a [literally] smoke-filled room in the Watergate Hotel! This old boys network they've got going is so absolutely stereotypical as to defy belief - I couldn't make this shit up if I tried.

Read it and laugh. Read it and weep. Read it and remember that November's only six months away.

Federal prosecutors are reviewing records of two Washington, D.C., hotels where Poway defense contractor Brent Wilkes rented suites as part of their investigation into whether prostitutes were involved as he tried to curry favor with lawmakers and CIA officials.
