DC sex scandal?

This one comes with the big caveat that it may not be a big sexy sex scandal filled with lots of sexy sex that was traded for favors.

It may have been for, like, a mahjong club or for someone whose neighborhood just couldn't get cable or something. But those shouldn't be difficult to explain and prove, right?

Hotlineblog reports: "According to the U-T, [lobbyist Brent] Wilkes [disgraced Republican Duke Cunningham's "co-conspirator No. 1"] also 'ran a hospitality suite, with several bedrooms, in' DC -- 'first in the Watergate Hotel and then' in a Capitol Hill hotel."

Hotlineblog asks the questions so we don't have to soil ourselves with suspicion and intrigue:


Come again? A 'hospitality suite with several bedrooms'?
Talk about raising more questions, including:
-- Why does a lobbyist need a 'hospitality suite with several bedrooms'?
-- Who uses those bedrooms and for what?
I reiterate: It may have been for the cable.

For those who like a bit more meat on their bones, Laura Rozen explores the somewhat less salacious but equally suspicious-sounding connections between Wilkes and the CIA, [HERE]. (Hotlineblog; hat tip: DailyKos)
