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.

It’s not Brown, but they would.

His wife is very well known as she was a major op/ed writer for the PD until ’09 or ’10.

Sherrod sells himself as Mr. Union/Blue Collar/Buckeyes/Browns

Not some weirdo prog have hooker orgies.

It would flip the state on its head.

But, it’s Menendez.

So, it amounts to a bear crap in the woods.

Don’t really think he qualifies as “powerful”, but sadly the rest of your statement is completely accurate.

It’s an oxymoron. By definition Democrats cannot be “shamed” regarding sex so I find it hard to believe that such a scandal could have legs.

Right. Catherine Herridge characterized it as a smoking gun. She looked visibly pissed off to learn what she learned about the Bengazi cable, but verbally said all the measured things you expect someone to say who was attempting to be fair and not jump to unsupported conclusions.
