Hello. I'm the House Majority Leader. What are You Wearing?

Washington has something of a sex scandal on its hands.

The likely next House Majority Leader took money from a phone-sex millionaire.

MP3 File


Rep Roy Blunt (R-MO) (left) is on his way to winning the coveted post of House Majority Leader -- replacing Rep Tom DeLay (R-TX) who's been indicted and is awaiting trial in Texas.

Rep Blunt has a political action committee -- or PAC -- that's contributed money to other Congressmen to buy -- make that "earn" their loyalty in these kind of races for House Leadership posts.

And it turns out that the biggest contributor to Mr Blunt's PAC made his fortune in the 90s with a phone-sex business.

Jeffery and Dawn Prosser chipped in a total of $10,000 for Mr Blunt's PAC -- which by the way is called the "Rely on Your Beliefs" fund.

Lessee. Republicans have taken a ton of cash from Jack Abramoff's casino connections. The likely next Republican Leader took a ton of 1-900 cash.

Gambling and phone-sex.

So tell me how those "Values Voters" came to vote for the GOP? (Roll Call via The Raw Story)

I am not a Republican so I can only say so much. But, this guy (Blunt)bothers the crap out of me. He is part of the problem and not the solution.
