What a Shocker

Political Wire:

Late last year we noted a possible sex scandal could be linked to the bribery scandal that brought down former Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham (R-CA). Now, the Wall Street Journal confirms federal prosecutors are investigating whether two contractors supplied Cunningham "with prostitutes and free use of a limousine and hotel suites, pursuing evidence that could broaden their long-running inquiry."
God, that’s so 80s. I’m just waiting for the grainy B&Ws of Cunningham sniffing coke off a hooker’s ass while watching re-runs of Dallas. Hey, Duke—who shot JR?!

The sudden hush you hear on Capitol Hill is because "investigators are focusing on whether any other members of Congress, or their staffs, may also have used the same free services... Agents have fanned out across Washington, interviewing women from escort services, potential witnesses and others who may have been involved in the arrangement."
They’re interviewing women from escort services, huh? Why am I thinking this investigation will turn into a scandal of its own? “Federal agent Dick Jackmehoff was indicted this morning for charging Happy Endings to his government-issued credit card…”
