Was Andy Stephenson onto something? An old thread..........>

Foley.....Gannon.....The Franklin Cover-up?

This Foley incident is probably just the tip of the iceberg on GOP behavior that goes well beyond issues of sexual orientation and indiscretions. It seems that this could continue to unravel in many directions for a long time if an investigative reporter would follow it. DU's own late great Andy Stephenson (himself openly gay) was trying to weave some threads together in this old post:

10. I know he passed. He is still on my buddy list though. I just can't remove
his name. I meant I wondered what he was up to when he was investigating Gannon.

Love and miss you Andy! :loveya:

14. I still have his phone number programmed into my cell phone.
I can't seem to remove it either. Instead, when I find myself heading into the "Ok, I give up it's hopeless mode", it's a good reminder to stay focused and never stop fighting for what's right and for our democracy. I sure do wish he was here today for a lot of reasons- this story, in particular - especially as it relates to Jeff Gannon. Also because much to everyone's surprise, Clint Curtis won the primary and if things keep going in this direction with the GOP, beat Feeney. Especially if we can connect Feeney with Foley which my instincts tell me we can.

I miss him too.

(Sending a hug to you and Fly) :)

3. Let me bring forward the vital piece of info from that thread...
Here's what Andy found:

CAPITOL CITY ESCORTS
WASHINGTON, DC 20001
(202) 589-1777

Long known to be a CIA front company. Don't ask how I know...They apparently have been involved with more than just escorts. I am doing some searches now....anyone want to jump in...feel free. I have a huntch there is something here...can't say what. Just that there is. I was told a long time ago about Capitol City Escorts. We need to milk this one...pun/no pun intended.

16. John, Andy and I were looking at this together. We never came
up with anything as specific as what is being disclosed now.

15. Wow. That's weird. I found Andy's thread via goggle
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 03:27 PM by Dover
when I was looking for info on the Franklin Coverup (to refresh my memory of that incident), and thought 'yikes! Andy was onto this a year ago!'. I was just trying to connect the dots of all the deviant sexual issues I've read about in connection with the GOP.

11. It's nice to know that folks still remember Andy and that he's still
helping us.
Thanks, Dover. Such a wealth of information in that thread. Perhaps some of it could be relevent today in busting these bastards.

12. This is also what Hunter S. Thompson was researching when
he killed himself. Personally, I'm still not sure if he commited suicide or if he was "suicided."

17. locking

The topic of the Franklin coverup has come up before during the Gannon incident and here's what Skinner had to say about it then:

Twenty threads... And where are we now? We've got the embarrassing spectacle of DU members linking to blatantly anti-semitic and homophobic websites. These threads have become huge magnets for trolls, eager to make us all look like fools. I never thought I'd see members of this site approving of articles that accuse Rep. Barney Frank of pedophilia. Some people seem to have lost all ability for critical thought.
