Forget Spitzer, What About Cheney’s D.C. Mistress?

Forget Spitzer, What About Cheney’s D.C. Mistress?

How soon we forget the blockbuster ABC News scoop that was – and then wasn’t – much bigger and more explosive then Governor Spitzer’s, because it alleged Dick Cheney was a client.

In fact, when the news broke, Bush’s “AIDS Czar” Randall Tobias, a former Eli Lilly top exec, resigned in shame. He should have stalled a bit like Louisiana Senator David Vitter did – the story was going to be killed, according to Wayne Madsen who named the ABC employee that pulled the plug after White House pressure.

Madsen expanded on the story after ABC dropped it, to allege that convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff was a client, as well as a lawyer in Rudy Giuliani’s firm.

Senator Vitter has admitted and apologized for his part in he scandal, but is still in office, likely to be subpoenaed in the Spring 2008 trial of Madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey.

Perhaps more sinister then the prostitution allegations are the questions of complicity in a media wash-out by ABC, whose in-house staff was originally given call records directly by Madam Palfrey.

Also according to Madsen, the probe of the DC Madam reveals much more troubling questions, including the unsolved murder of a US attorney and another fired in Bush’s DOJ purge, both of whom were investigating the DC Madam case.

This network cover-up mirrors similar allegations made in Dan Rather’s lawsuit against CBS News/Viacom. Hopeful his $70 million suit will go forward, Rather claims his controversial Texas Air Guard story was killed not because of the infamous disputed memo, but because of a call made from the White House.

Rather too, will likely name who in the Bush Administration made the call, and who at Viacom took it, also claiming CBS News quashed the Abu Ghraib detainee abuse scandal to curry White House favor, until it was reported by Australian news.

Spitzer Is Linked to Prostitution Ring

New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer apologized to his family and to the public for a “private matter” on Monday but made no reference to a New York Times report that he may have been linked to a prostitution ring.

Spitzer, who built his reputation going after white-collar crime on Wall Street as the state’s prosecutor and as governor vowed to clean up state politics, said nothing about possibly resigning.

Fox News television, citing unnamed sources, said before Spitzer spoke that the governor was expected to resign.

Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet with a prostitute at a Washington hotel last month, the Times reported on its Web site.

“I have acted in a way that violated the obligations to my family and that violates my — or any — sense of right and wrong. I apologize first, and most importantly, to my family. I apologize to the public whom I promised better,” Spitzer told a packed room of reporters in New York City with his wife at his side.

“I am disappointed that I failed to live up to the standard that I expect of myself. I must now dedicate some time to regain the trust of my family,” Spitzer added.

He did not take questions from reporters and Spitzer’s aides declined to comment further.

As New York’s state attorney general before being elected governor in November 2006, Spitzer was sometimes called the Sheriff of Wall Street for his prominent role in investigating financial cases.
