The obligatory “Drudge teasing political sex scandal story” post

posted at 10:00 pm on October 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

People have been e-mailing for the past hour wondering if it’s The One. C’mon — President Spock, caught in a sex scandal? He’s years away from his next pon farr.

It’s not him:

SEX SCANDAL TO HIT CAMPAIGN…

STORY SAID TO INVOLVE POWERFUL SENATOR, SOURCES TELL DRUDGE. DAILY CALLER PLANS LATE NIGHT RELEASE…

That second line appeared on Drudge’s site only within the past half hour or so. Before it did, Ace posted that he’d also heard tonight about a sex scandal involving a senator — a Democratic senator — that was set to pop soon. Follow the link for details. Spitzer’s meltdown would be hard to top, but if the allegations are true, this would do it. No word on whether it’s someone who’s up for reelection but it’s hard to resist jumping to that conclusion given the timing.

That’s all there is right now. While we wait, via Breitbart, here’s a visit from the Ghost of Sex Scandals Past. Evidently the GOP wants people to know that rape and incest “are not problems” anymore. Thank goodness he informed me of this before election day.

Drudge at National Press Club. If you have never seen it, give it a tumble.

They HATED him.

Harry Reid with a cadaver. I mean, c’mon, look at the guy.

Please! It’s gotta be a halfway decent looking ‘rat.

Gillibrand or Landrieu, if it’s a broad ‘rat senator.

Lanceman on October 31, 2012 at 10:05 PM

meh … It’s probably gillibrand, which of couse means she’ll get elected anyway.

Which senator is going to orgies and not paying the hookers? (via Ace)

Wait. Neither of those broads are powerful.

Ohio.

I assume its breaking now; it will break soon enough anyway.

it’s a powerful Senator.

Hope it is a Dem up for reelection who was a shoe in..turn another one RED.

A sex tape of a menage a trois between Patty Murray, Barbara Boxer, and Bernie Sanders? I wonder who filmed it…

Cornell Conservative on October 31, 2012 at 10:10 PM

I don’t see how it can hurt the campaign unless it is a senator from Ohio, Michigan, or PA

BettyRuth on October 31, 2012 at 10:10 PM

“Powerful” would suggest Reid, Schumer or Durbin. Sherrod Brown would be the most advantageous. The funniest possibility would be Amy Klobuchar.

Punchenko on October 31, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Wow…off topic. But on Fox News right now. There was a cable sent three weeks before the Bengazi attacks with ‘specific warning and intelligence about Al Queda and Ansar Al Islam, the risk they pose to their security, and the inability of the consulate to survive a coordinated attack”.

Bmore on October 31, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Sherrod Brown.

BKeyser on October 31, 2012 at 10:05 PM

That would be huge. HUGE.

It would lock OH for Romney because a lot of the Northwestern goodwill Barry has stems from Sherrod Brown’s campaign.

budfox on October 31, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Saw that. Hadn’t heard the Caribbean angle. But I’d heard about Claire a while back.

why would a female-unless she’s gay-fly to foreighn soil to mess with hookers.

more a male thing to do

I am hoping it is some democrat that is up for election.

This will not matter if it were Dianne Fienstein. Most of her voters would simply not see this as lessening her moral values in any way.

I would love for it to be Sherrod Brown, but I would be shocked.

KeepOhioRed on October 31, 2012 at 10:08 PM

Have you ever seen his wife or read her columns when she was still with the PD? She and Brown are birds of a feather. But if it is Brown, whewie…what a gift to Mandel.

Hmmmm. Dem senator outsourcing sex-trade industry employment to foreigners? Just a rumor so far.

Can a Democrat Senator have sex scandal?

I can’t imagine what it would have to be to qualify.

forest on October 31, 2012 at 10:12 PM

I hope it’s Brown in Ohio.

But look at the Senate……it could be almost anyone. And now that I think about it…

SO WHAT? If it’s a Democrat the media will rally around him/her/it and will especially if they are running against a republican. And if it involves rape maybe they are just setting him/her/it to run in 2016 against Cuomo and Biden and Humas’ gal pal over at State.

meh, scandal? democrats? yawn? next.

pamplonajack on October 31, 2012 at 10:02 PM

We couldn’t be that lucky, could we?

I was betting that Axelrod would unload a gay sex scandal on Romney. Remember, this is the Thursday before we vote coming up, and that’s when the Gore people dumped the DUI scandal on the a$$clown Bushies.

I’m still expecting a sexual smear of some sort from those people. All lies, of course, but if you rope in Gloria Allred and a faux-victim, you might be able to make some Evangelicals stay home. That’s what happened in 2000.

I will be enormously relieved if Claire McCaskill has been sleeping with Mike Tyson.

Personally, I hope it’s Durbin.

But, if we’re talking cheap and powerful – that sounds like Schumer

BUT – we’re talking about the Daily Caller

So that means it’s probably Tester or Casey

I wouldn’t be upset if it was Nelson

budfox on October 31, 2012 at 10:15 PM

Oh, let it be Durbin. The people in Illinois’ need to find a way to pry him from his seat.

Then again, Jesse Jackson, Jr. will be elected after a sex scandal, a Senate seat scandal and an inappropriate use of funds scandal…

…Grrr. Nevermind.

@AceofSpadesHQ Man I like that Joe Kyrillos running for #NJSen. Best thing about him? No hooker-filled Domincan Republic sex orgies with big donors.

Per Ace above…

That would be Robert Menendez-D-NJ

He’d probably still win reelection anyway.

Schumer. The power was on before his pants! Oh Sandy! you b**ch!

cartooner on October 31, 2012 at 10:18 PM

If it turns out to be real it’s notable for two reasons: a Democrat senator in a sex scandal, and Drudge hyping something that didn’t turn out to be a giant nothingburger.

alchemist19 on October 31, 2012 at 10:19 PM

Couldn’t be Bob Casey. Bob Casey is too stupid to have sex. I think it might be Schumer or Durbin. I’m hoping it is Brown (for POTUS politics) or Claire (for a cheap laugh).

Punchenko on October 31, 2012 at 10:19 PM

It needs to be Sherrod Brown! It could actually make a difference and tip everything to Romney and Josh Mandel!
