Scooter’s Sex Shocker : The New Yorker

This, my dear friends, could easily describe the kind of abuse that occurs in the secret societies we speak of in other posts. See the writings and interviews of the “Survivors” under the tab “Secret Societies”. I. (Irve or Irving?) Scooter Libby, attorney and former Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was convicted of a felony in relation to the Valerie Plume affair.

Where his Republican predecessors can seem embarrassingly awkward—the written equivalent of trying to cop a feel while pinning on a corsage—Libby is unabashed:

At age ten the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest.
