Is this true? high-level administrator(s) paying $400 for sex. Say it ain't so. Republicans don't do this kind of thing, do they?

1. From what I read it seems to have merit
The intern was already fired. Don't know how much supporting evidence will be made public before the trial, though.

6. She's not being prosecuted for solicitation?
That's odd.

2. It wasn't a congressman
My understanding is that it was a high-level administrator, possibly appointed by Bush but not in the White House.

3. There will be no trial-She says she'll expose the other "sluts" and GOPers
if brought to trial.

This will be buried - and the media will help bury it.

This is not a Dem administration afterall - GOP media applies GOP media rules to these situations.

16. LOL - but I believe the GOP have gotten her a great job in New York
I believe it was in the publishing field - perhaps a right wing book publisher?

10. First, the woman claims that the money was for gifts vs. the actual sex
and it sounds like she isn't going to sell anyone out by switching her story on the fly.

Second, who gives a flying f*ck? I really don't understand the fascination in the whole thing anyway.

A). Oooh, a sex scandal in DC between a low level flunky and a bunch of high paid paper pushers. Wow, that's never happened anywhere else in the country.

B) The writing could have been cribbed off a R-rated "Sex in the City" take-off. Hardly original and once again, if it hadn't happened in DC no one would even give it a second look.

Almost sounds like she deliberately manufactured a controversy to get out of a crappy job and to have some offers waiting for her on the other end.

14. She looks much better in this picture than in the one in the
Washington Post. That one won't copy for me.

13. She isn't as cute as she thinks she is,
but it's doubtful they loved her for her looks anyway.

It is interesting that she went from an intern at Lieberman's office to staff at DeWine's. Normally don't the interns stay within the same party?

Oh, never mind, she did.

I think she deserves a raise.
