There may be a medium-sized White House sex scandal brewing, and I could not be more psyched. I am not being sarcastic.
The new sex scandal is, in fact, an old sex scandal: Remember when the Secret Service got caught cavorting with prostitutes in Columbia in 2012? Back then, the White House said none of their staffers were involved in the cavortion. Now, according to the Washington Post, it appears that unpaid intern Jonathan Dach may have in fact taken a prostitute up to his room, and that the White House knew about it.
This is a big deal for three reasons: 1) The fine young man in question is the son of a major Obama donor; 2) though unpaid at the time, he started working at the White House this year as a policy adviser in the Office on Global Women’s Issues (LOL, etc); and 3) this story does not involve ISIS, Ebola, Ferguson, or in fact anyone dying horribly at all. I love it. Let’s talk about it all the time.
