Hometown sexless scandal update 

Big Head DC's Rob Capriccioso emailed this AM to point out a blog at the Dallas Voice that gives another summary of what is so far either just a liberal wet dream or a race to the signing-bonus tell-all finish line. One of the red herrings here may be Hustler publisher Larry Flynt's $1 million offer to any snitch whose published snitching leads to the downfall of a Capitol Hill moral hypocrite. The Hustler intimates to the Voice's Webb that it has some goods on Lott, but doesn't necessarily want to spend the cash on more "investigation" (God forbid) or paying informants for a story they might not publish since Lott has already resigned. (Raising the question in here somewhere: Can you buy a better democracy? Also, should someone ask Flynt, whose company claims to have "lots of information on lots of different people" but says it's only interested in busting hypocrites, if you really can play J. Edgar Hoover as a good guy?)
