I really enjoyed reading this op ed about Hookergate by Dr. Susan Block. I certainly hope this gets better media coverage.

At Last, a Scandal We Can Enjoy!

Hookergate

By Dr. SUSAN BLOCK

Wake up and smell the sex! That sizzling aroma wafting up from Washington penetrates the nostrils like the scent of hot dogs grilling on the barbie. And just like that sweet meaty bouquet of backyard BBQs on Memorial Day, it's hard to tell, from a distance, just whose backyards are having all the fun. Fortunately, the FBI, a few bloggers and even some mainstream reporters are sticking their noses into this pork-laden sex scandal we're calling "Hookergate" (as well as "Fornigate," "Tailgate" and "Watergate-gate").

We do know that one of the smoked sausages belongs to freshly incarcerated Republican Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham, former Vietnam War "Top Gun," and House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Hot Dog from San Diego who was sentenced in March to more than eight years in prison for taking $2.4 million in bribes from military contractors. Cunningham's personal booty (detailed by CounterPunch's Jeffrey St. Clair in his salacious new book, Grand Theft Pentagon.) included a yacht docked on the Potomac where he lived rent-free, cutely dubbed "The Duke Stir," owned by his "owner," San Diego defense contractor, Mitchell Wade. Wade's largesse paid off well for him, as the Dukestir brought home the bacon in the form of tens of millions of dollars in defense and intelligence contracts for Wade's fledgling company MZM Inc.

But this cozy arrangement that cost taxpayers millions wasn't just between Wade and Cunningham. Now the FBI is looking into just which U.S. government officials enjoyed the Wade-paid Poker 'n' Prostitutes parties at the Watergate Hotel (yes, that Watergate Hotel).

I think it's about time that the American people are told about what goes on behind closed doors.

This just shows how badly this administration has mislead everyone, especially their hard line conservative faith based followers.

Aside from US tax dollars being spent, I really could care less if this guy was in to prositution.

Like when Bill Clinton was being scrutinized for his affair with monica lewinsky, alomst got impeached for it.

I care...

I care if they were involved in prostitution rings.

The politicians hold security clearances. Prostitution opens them up to the chance of blackmail from either another politician, a staffer or a foreign agent.

I care if they were involved in prostitution rings.

But aren't the Republicans the Stars in the Documentary "Conspiracy of Silence?" Although I've heard it was never shown in America it is about Republicans having Sex Parties with Children in the White House, so what's the big deal about Prostitutes? It may be illegal in many places in America except one of your western states, but still it's just Prostitution not pedophilia.
