News: Congressional/CIA prostitute scandal in the Watergate  
A new wrinkle has emerged in the Randy "Duke" Cunningham bribery case that forced the Congressman to step down last November. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that defense contractors brought prostitutes to rooms rented in the Watergate for Congressmen and CIA officials. This builds on a report yesterday in the Wall Street journal, which questions whether other lawmakers were involved. Dean Calbreath of the Union-Tribune said that at least six other names have surfaced in the investigation.

Shirlington Limousine, the service that allegedly brought the prostitutes to the Watergate, is run by a man with a 62-count rap sheet stretching back to 1979. Shirlington Limousine recently won a $21.2 million contract with the Dept. of Homeland Security.

Sounds like the Bush administration will have to start subpoenaing notes from reporters at the San Diego Union-Tribune and investigate national security leaks involving people that talked to them. Isn't that how it works?

One thing is for sure. Whoever did this will lose their jobs...unless that person actually works in the White House. In which case...they'll fire some desk clerk at the congressional gym to make sure someone is punished.
