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.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
