World News Tonight

The new anchors are Elizabeth Vargas and Bob Woodruff. Brian Williams wished them a good luck--though he made sure not to point out it was not in excessive amounts.

In other news, the Hotline reports that a sex scandal may be breaking soon dealing with Duke Cunningham and Brent Wilkes.
According to the U-T, Wilkes also "ran a hospitality suite, with several bedrooms, in" DC -- "first in the Watergate Hotel and then" in a Capitol Hill hotel.

Come again? A "hospitality suite with several bedrooms?"

Talk about raising more questions, including:
-- Why does a lobbyist need a "hospitality suite with several bedrooms?"
-- Who uses those bedrooms and for what?

These lobbying scandals involving Cunningham and Wilkes and Abramoff are looking more and more like a bad movie script every day. Except with one difference from the movies: this stuff actually happened.
According to San Diego's Union-Tribune, which has a major story on this. It should be noted that Brent Wilkes was the "San Diego County finance co-chairman of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign and the state finance co-chairman for President Bush."
