So... while we were looking Left, some shit done hit the fan over on the Right!
According to a salacious gossip blog called Big Head DC, Republican Trent Lott’s abrupt resignation from the U.S. Senate yesterday might have something to do with Lott’s “alleged” involvement with a “gay escort” known as Benjamin Nichols.
(Matt Drudge won’t even touch that item.)
The Huffington Post last night quoted the gay escort as categorically denying that he’d ever met Trent Lott.
But early this morning, Big Head DC updated with this from Larry Flynt’s website:
“HUSTLER Magazine has received numerous inquiries regarding the involvement of Larry Flynt and HUSTLER in the resignation of Trent Lott. Senator Lott has been the target of an ongoing HUSTLER investigation for some time now, due to confidential information that we have received.”
I suppose we’ll soon see whether Big Head DC (i.e., Rob Capriccioso) is a useless scumbucket or a beacon of truth. He has already done his part to spread the Hillary rumor.
