The following bit from the Guardian article caught my eye:

Quote:
Retired admiral Bruce Loveless, 53, and the others have been accused of accepting the services of sex workers and other bribes from Leonard Francis (aka Fat Leonard) in exchange for classified information that helped his company, Glenn Defence Marine Asia.


Seriously? An Admiral called Loveless has girls procured for him by a pimp called Fat Leonard. If you saw it in a series on TV you wouldn't believe it...

My favorite quote from the Post article:

During a port visit by the Blue Ridge to Manila in May 2008, for example, five of the Navy officers attended a “raging multi-day party, with a rotating carousel of prostitutes,” at the Shangri-La Hotel, according to the indictment.

That's one way to influence people, I guess.

I dug a bit more and the story is juicy, its just that Rear-Admiral Loveless involved in a sex scandal sounds like Pussy Galore from James Bond
