From the You've Got to Be Shitting Me Files

Come on:

The male escort responsible for the downfall of Christian evangelist leader Ted Haggard is now alleging that embattled Senator Larry Craig also came to see him.

…Feingold asked whether the Senator had seen [Mike Jones] in a hotel room.

Jones responded, "No, he came to see me."

Jones then added, "His travel records to Denver have been documented. That's what I wanted to say."
Craig's office—shocker!—denies the allegations, calling them "completely false." The linked article helpfully reminds us: "Christian evangelist Ted Haggard originally denied Jones' allegations of sexual relations in 2006." Heh.

Via Atrios, who appears to believe this "harmonic convergence" is too good to be true, and I have to agree. But, then again, stranger things have happened than the possibility that every closeted conservative west of the Mississippi was sharing notes on the Best Little Whorehouse in Denver.

UPDATE: Mike Rogers thinks Jones is lying. Thanks, Blogenfreude.
