Hookergate Update: Indictment Against Ex-CIA #3 Dusty Foggo

Longtime readers will remember the first hookergate scandal (before the DC madam and Sen. David Vitter and later, Elliott Spitzer, etc) revolving around Rep. Randy 'Duke' Cunningham, his briber/co-conspirator, Brent Wilkes and his long-time buddy at the CIA, Kyle 'Dusty' Foggo.

Now the AP is reporting:

A new indictment of a former top CIA official alleges that he received bribes in the form of "sexual companionship" from a friend seeking an edge in landing multimillion-dollar contracts from the agency. Federal prosecutors in Alexandria, Va., on Tuesday obtained a superseding indictment against Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, who as executive director held the CIA's No. 3 rank before leaving in 2006.

The indictment accuses Foggo of accepting tens of thousands of dollars in meals, vacations and other perks in exchange for helping friend Brent Wilkes obtain various contracts with the CIA. ...(more)

The Wshington Post makes it seem slightly less salacious, like it involves an ex-mistress he tried to get a job at the CIA and not a prostitute. Not quite sure if they are talking about different parts of the same indictment or not, but I'd say it appears that way at this point. Wilkes had plied Cunningham with prostitutes, among other things, so it's not surprising at all he would have used the same tactic with Dusty. Wilkes and Foggo had been roommates in college, best men at each others' weddings, and even named their sons after each other.

In related recent news:

  • Convicted 'Duke' Cunningham briber/co-conspirator Brent Wilkes just received a 12 year sentence and sits in jail while pending an appeal because he can't afford the bail thanks in part to the housing crisis. Despite his financial woes, he was denied a court appointed attorney last month.
