CIA Director Porter Goss Resigns

Fri May 05, 2006 at 11:11:16 AM PDT

This isn't part of some White House shake-up. This is a scandal-plagued Bush appointee resigning just as an investigation into another Republican corruption scandal hits too close to home.

Former Republican lawmaker and current CIA Director Porter Goss's name has surfaced time and time again in the Republican bribe scheme, which began with a focus on disgraced Republican Congressman Duke Cunningham and his Republican lobbyists (hmm, do I think I mentioned "Republican" enough in that sentence?).

It is Goss's hand-picked #3 man at the CIA, Kyle "Dusty" Foggo who is under serious investigation in connection with a massive bribery scheme that touches on sweetheart deals, million dollar contracts, and yes, even hookers.

I want to read that Porter Goss "wants to spend more time with his family".

The Watergate Hotel (yes, that hotel!) has apparently been subpoenaed in connection to the hooker business. And the owner of the limo firm implicated in the whole thing has lawyed up "big time".
