Ask Brian Bilbray - May 2 Edition

It is interesting how many members of congress and CIA employees are having a hard time remembering the details of those cigar and booze filled nights over at Brent Wilkes' "hospitality suite." Via TPM Muckracker:

Porter Goss never participated.

Dusty Foggo played poker, but never saw any hookers.

Jerry Lewis (CA-41) never hung with Wilkes outside of California.

Duncan Hunter (CA-51) doesn't drink, smoke or hang out with riff-raff.

John Doolittle (CA-4) doesn't speak to the press.

What about one of Wilkes other pals in congress, Brian Bilbray. Bilbray received some big money from Wilkes and was active both in congress and as a lobbyist while Wilkes was running his "hospitality" operation for lonely members of congress.

Why isn't someone from the Pulitzer Prize winning San Diego Union Tribune asking Bilbray about his associations with Wilkes?
