I have thus far resisted discussing the “Washingtonienne” sexblog scandal because, hey, this is a family website. (Okay, okay, really it’s just because I was too lazy to post about it.)
But now the Washington Post has published an interview with Washingtonienne — a.k.a. Jessica Cutler, until recently a staff aide to Sen. Mike DeWine — which a) makes the story more “legitimate”; and b) saves me the work of explaining what happened.
What’s more, the Post story reveals that Washingtonienne is also a former Joe Lieberman intern! So that makes this a must-post story here on BrendanLoy.com!
So yeah, anyway, read the whole thing, and find out what the hell I’m talking about. :)
But there are no hard feelings, apparently. On Friday, Wonkette published the first Washingtonienne interview — then last night, she went out for drinks with the only D.C. blogger more infamous than herself, resulting in this picture:
That’s Wonkette on the left, Washingtonienne on the right. Because this is still technically a family website, I will refrain from publishing my uncensored thoughts on the photo. :)
Washingtonienne’s blog no longer exists at its original location, but it has been archived here. Parental discretion is very much advised.
P.S. Check out who owns the domain washingtonienne.com! Savvy bastards.
P.P.S. Stand up for your right to (ahem) kiss and tell! Save Washingtonienne! :)
P.P.P.S. On a (slightly) more serious note, Volokh has a good analysis of the First Amendment implications of Washingtonienne’s firing.
