Cybersex Scandal: Pre-Foley

No breaking news here. Most of the Beltway Folks have read about this already. But for those of you outside of Washington, this is not only interesting, but it has HUGE implications for the online world.

The quick and dirty of it is that this fella, Robert Steinbuch, was engaged in a relationship with a fellow Capitol Hill Staffer. In fact, they both worked for outgoing OH Senator Mike DeWine. Unbeknownst to him, his girlfriend, Jessica Cutler, was keeping an online journal of their relationship. And a few others!
Ms. Cutler called him the "current favorite" and said he resembled George Clooney, liked spanking and disliked condoms.
I'll save the rest of the details for the actual article. The boring part is that they are going to court, after years of discovery. This will get really dirty and personal. I feel bad for both of them.
