Hooker in the West Wing

It has now become clear that the White House has been giving press passes to a gay male prostitute, who operated under a false name, was not a real journalist, and was allowed access to the President and to private government memos. James Guckert received daily press passes for the false name Jeff Gannon, working for a bogus organization called "Talon News," which he has since quit. Mr Gannon/Guckert has admitted that he lied about his identity, claiming he did it "because the name was easier to remember." He has also admitted to owning website names including HotMilitaryStud.com, which he claims were "for another client." Recently, naked pictures of Gannon have been discovered at other sites like Meetlocalmen.com and Malecorps.com. This information has been accessible on the internet, and it has not been difficult to discover Gannon/Guckert's real name. So why did the White House, which campaigned on a anti-gay-marriage agenda, allow this man access to the President and to secret memos? And why has nothing been done now that the facts are known? The public deserves some answers. It would seem this is one issue that both Republicans and Democrats can agree upon. Call your Congressman and senators. My only question is, "If Mr. Gannon had been Ms. Gannon, would BushCo be out on the streets with tin cups?"
