UPDATE: 17 july…
Following my recent post regarding C Street, we now know of another Republican resident of C Street caught with his pants down.
The wife of former Congressman Chip Pickering has filed a lawsuit against his mistress, one Elizabeth Creekmore Byrd, a member of the wealthy family that owns Cellular South. Pickering is now employed as a lobbyist for the company.
Pickering’s wife, in her lawsuit, states that her husband and Byrd began having an affair while he was living at C Street, the subject of several of my blog posts on here.
I have to ask the question: While the Fellowship was brainwashing Republicans to vote and toe the fundamentalist Christian line, was it also providing a safe haven in Washington, DC, for the same politicians to carry out their affairs in secrecy at C Street?
Drugs? Alcohol? Wanton women? I swear…the C Street residence is quite the Animal House, isn’t it?
One final word: Pickering “cast himself as a defender of decency, particularly on television and the Internet, and was among House members urging then-President George W. Bush to declare 2008 “the National Year of the Bible.”
