Republicans Involved In Lobbyist Sex Scandal At The Watergate Hotel?

Are members of Congress involved is a sex scandal? The following article is dated Fri Apr 28, 2006, a week before CIA Director Porter Goss unexpectedly retired.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that there is enough evidence of a lobbyist-sponsored prostitution ring that investigators are scurrying across D.C., trying to figure out exactly which lawmakers were involved…

Prosecutors were tipped off about the sex-for-favors scheme by Mitchell Wade, who has already plead guilty to bribing Cunningham and is cooperating with investigators.

And let us not forget that, at this point, it is a Republican sex scandal. Porter Goss, if you'll recall, was a highly partisan Republican lawmaker for fifteen years before he was tapped as CIA Director…

Is the CIA Director involved in a D.C. prostitution ring? (It's so surreal just to type that question out).


Is this why Porter Goss resigned?

Is this why so many members of Congress follow along with this administration’s insane policies? Have the lobbyists got this administration (including Congress members) by the jewels?

Are the 'hospitality suites' made available and the activities within being used to blackmail members of Congress?

Why aren’t we hearing more about this scandal?

So many questions… but this suspected conspiracy would certainly explain a lot.

Goss leaving was already going to happen...

But senior administration officials said Bush had lost confidence in Goss, 67, almost from the beginning and decided months ago to replace him. In what was described as a difficult meeting in April with Negroponte, Goss was told to prepare to leave by May, according to several officials with knowledge of the conversation.

Yes, it was predestined, but the public didn't know that. This could all tie into the Randy "Duke" Cunningham scandal, which broke last year. There are pieces of a puzzle here and they look like they fit together. Some are missing, but this looks highly suspicious to me.

Sign On San Diego

December 4, 2005

Over the past 20 years, Wilkes has devoted much of his career to developing political contacts in Washington. He and his associates have spent at least $600,000 on political contributions and $1.1 million on lobbying beyond the gifts mentioned in the Cunningham plea agreement, as they cultivated such politicians as House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and Appropriations Committee Chairman Jerry Lewis.

Wilkes befriended other legislators, too. He ran a hospitality suite, with several bedrooms, in Washington – first in the Watergate Hotel and then in the Westin Grand near Capitol Hill.

A number of sources who have had business dealings with Wilkes say he hinted at that time and afterward that he was affiliated with the CIA. CIA sources say he was never employed by the agency.

By the time Wilkes returned to San Diego in the late 1980s, he had established relationships with members of the House Armed Services, Intelligence and Appropriations committees.

Neither Wilkes, Foggo nor Lowery responded to requests for comment.

There is so much more here to be investigated. So much that I doubt we'll ever hear about...

Where's deepthroat when you need him?
