From a reader: “Dana Priest is on MSNBC right now saying we’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s paper to find out why he resigned. The Post must have called him for comment on a story running tomorrow about his involvement with Brent Wilkes.”
I don’t know if you have been following the story about the corrupt defense contractor providing hookers for Republican members of Congress who were providing him with huge defense contracts. See Sex, Lies, and Government Contracts, Hookergate: Everybody Wants a Piece of the Action, Who Will Be the Woodward and Bernstein of New ‘Hookergate’ Story?, Watergate Subpoenaed in Hooker Probe and Hookergate being buried by press for more on that.
Well one of those Members of Congress later became CIA director. And just 2 weeks after the news about the hookers… CIA Director Porter Goss Resigns
Talking Points Memo
Left Coaster: Party On, Porter – Don’t Let The Door Hit You In The Ass
