Aspiring Filmmaker Screws Around With Congress

It took some doing. But Brett Lewis is just about finished with his ode to everything that’s wrong with #ThisTown, the ribald “C Street.”  

“Some things happened along the way, but I persevered,” Lewis, who lost his mother to cancer last spring, said of the unexpected twist and turns he’s had to navigate to translate the vision in his head on to the big screen.

Former Sen. Alan K. Simpson couldn't solve the nation's financial woes as co-chairman of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform — but where he fell short in economic affairs he perhaps is making up for in affairs of the heart.  

The 84-year-old Wyoming Republican, who held office from 1979 to 1997, is being partly credited for the recent marriage of a New York Public Radio podcaster, Anna Sale, and a wildlife research scientist, Arthur Middleton.

Updated 3:03 p.m. | Personal information gathered from a cyber assault on online-fling facilitator Ashley Madison has now hit the Web, and a handful of Capitol Hill accounts appear to have been laid bare.  

Per media reports , the client records harvested by hackers identifying themselves as "Impact Team" include some 36 million email addresses. Ashley Madison does not, by its own admission, engage in any type of email verification, making fictitious accounts another resource in the cheater's toolbox.  

New Site Makes Sport of Sizing Up Pols

Lawmakers looking for a little pick-me-up (or, possibly, some of the most depressing news ever) need look no further than the completely inane “Sexy Congress” selection tool.  

The nascent time suck functions on a basic premise: Pick the pol(s) you find most attractive.  

Redditors Get Off on Plugging C-SPAN

Playboy scoured the Internet (OK, just Reddit) in search of rock-solid sex tips and apparently came away with a deeper appreciation for public broadcasting.

Social Media Enthralled by Political Lovefest

The 114th Congress has only been in session for a few days now, but meme-makers appear to be quite smitten with what they’ve seen.  

Unlike the party poopers at the National Republican Congressional Committee — who are shocked (SHOCKED, I tell you) by all the naughty bits in “The Global War on Morris,” the satirical novel from former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairman and newly minted author, Steve Israel of New York — the web savvy have embraced the bonhomie on display by our elected officials. Whether it be a flirtatious peck on the House floor ...

Blake Farenthold Relaxes Grip on Sex-Related Domain

One lucky porn pusher will be able to exploit a whole new traffic stream this summer — just as soon as Rep. Blake Farenthold relinquishes control of blow-me.org.  

The Texas Republican had the prescience of mind to snatch up the salacious sounding domain back during his cyber-speculating days, laying claim to the sodomitic-sounding site in 1999.

Sleazy Pol Sparks Spectacular Reddit Guessing Game

Reddit, the online hub known for its no-holds-barred “Ask Me Anything ” discussions has been consumed by the SHOCKING! (shocking?) revelation that some elected official, somewhere may have slipped a paramour a few bucks to keep quiet about their extracurricular activities.  

“Relative of mine slept with a notable politician and was paid to keep quiet. Has the hush letter in writing,” a Redditor who posts under the moniker diztorted floated in a forum rife with heartbreaking tales of childhood molestation and jarring anecdotes about stumbling upon unknown siblings/secret second families.  

Alan Simpson Dishes About Sex, Love and Marriage

Former Sen. Alan K. Simpson is truly milking this whole “I’m-retired-and-over-80-so-I-can-say-whatever-I-want-now” thing but good, letting it all hang out in an interview about affairs of the heart with WNYC reporter Anna Sale.  

During her totally frank talk with the randy octogenarian, Sale discovers that the Wyoming Republican favors coarse language (“He peppers his sentence with cuss words,” she observes), reading “Othello” helped him recognize his own jealousy issues and that he still very much enjoys playing grab-ass with his wife of 60 years, Ann Simpson.
