WEHT Jeff Gannon?

Bush and Co managed to turn a major scandal into a minor event somehow, but where did Jeff go?

Is he a prostie again?

Did they kill him with a heart attack or helicopter accident?

Did he disappear?

He's sucking cock

by Anonymousreply 101/29/2011

One of the great untold stories of the last administration. If that had occurred during the Clinton or Obama years, the Repubs would never have shut up about it. Sometimes the Dems are such pussies.

Other than sucking cock, which is a given if he is alive does anyone really know what happened to him?

You'd be surprised at how many democrats have never heard of that scandal. I don't know if we got "scandal fatigue" during W's reign of terror or what but most people don't know shit about it, Republicans will try to tell you that you're confusing it with the pedophile "Franklin Coverup" from the Reagan White House. There are conspiracy theorists who believe that Jeff Gannon/Johnny Guckert are the same person and tied to the same Boy's Ranch who supplied the child prostitutes.

So which senior official was he fucking in the Bush Whitehouse? W himself?

by Anonymousreply 801/29/2011

I'd say Ken Melhman, but I'd think Kenny was more discrete than that (and they probably wouldn't let him bring a whore to the Whitehouse on a regular basis anyway). So, it was probably someone high-up in the Bush staff. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was W.

Etc etc. I hate that he's gay but he seems pretty gay. Watch the Jeff Gannon Talon News press clips, he and W were fucking.

One thing that's certain: Jimmy Guckert (Gannon's real name) didn't get all that access by mistake. You don't get a couple hundred day passes to the White House, and at least one overnight stay, through a clerical error. White House press credentials are hard to come by, and that was true a long time before 9/11.

He had at least one friend, and probably more than one, in high places. How high is anyone's guess. The most interesting thing about it is how little coverage it got by the "free 'n independent" White House press corps.

I've heard about the Franklin Scandal. I wouldn't be surprised if there was (is?) a powerful group of pedos in our gov't.

Thing is, is how would they gain the cooperation of LEOs and the FBI for this massive cover-up, without it exploding in their faces somehow? The thing that keeps this story in the realm of "conspiracy theory" in the minds of a lot of people, is that conspiracy theorists like to speak of the gov't as a single entity, acting according to the desires of some shadowy group.

If the gov't is so inefficient, as a lot of people like to say, then how can something like this be successfully pulled off without there being some publicized breakdown in the plan, along the way?

I'm aware that members of the media, corporate fat cats, and high-ranking politicos are all in bed with each other (which explains the shittiness of tv news, and the lack of genuinely progressive legislation), but many people are aware of this fact. Also, every single one of them can't be pedos, so a cover-up lasting this long seems unlikely.

Does it come as a surprise to anyone that the real Powers That Be who operate out of the spotlight should want the occupant of the White House to be an eminently blackmail-able person?

What better way to secure obedience from a Chief Executive than to hold material that could turn him (or her) overnight from respectable dignitary to figure of scorn and shame.

I have no trouble believing that, after all the women sneaked into the White House for high-level politicians (including the president) that a man was also sneaked in. Gannon probably wasn't the first. Posing as a journalist, though, that seems so weird. Why would anyone even okay that kind of thing? Because of his past, did they think they had plausible deniability, i.e. could just blame it on him being a sneaky tricky whore?

[quote]The cheerleading, the alcoholism, the rumors of he and the current Texas Governor Rick Perry.

While I've heard plenty of stories about Perry, a number of which I'm sure will surface should he decide to run for president, I've never heard even a peep about a supposed affair with him and Bush (and I don't buy for a nanosecond that Bush is gay).

[quote]Gannon was the TKE advisor for the West Chester chapter. I am a TKE, and heard that once the story broke about his past, it was VERBOTEN to mention his name.

Interesting. I know a whole bunch of recent TKEs, Texas chapter, and gayness is pretty much a non-issue with them, considering they have at least three openly gay members, to my knowledge, and their outgoing president's best friend is gay.

Finally, for the record, I think "Jeff Gannon" was fucking Scott McClellan, Bush's press secretary between 2003-2006 (during which time the Gannon scandal erupted). While still living here in Austin, where he grew up and attended both college and law school, Scott was spotted numerous times at local gay bars -- apparently always solo and presumably on the hunt for tricks, this having occurred in the days before the Internet and Manhunt.

They fell all over themselves covering not just the fact of Monica Lewinski but the fact that Clinton stuck a cigar in her hoo-hah ad that she gave him analingus, and blew him while he was talking to a congressman.%0D %0D But a man whore with a uniform fetish -- during war time, no less -- and suddenly it's the kink that dare not speak its name. By the way, just for the record, word is that the original Watergate tips were exchanged because Carl Bernstein had met Mark Felt (of the FBI) at swinger parties in the Virginia suburbs, a phenomenon given even less play than fake military gay hookers.%0D %0D I can tell you this, folks: I've never worked in a city whose general level of horniness came even close to Washington's.

I agree, R150. As much as it would be a good story for it to be Bush, not only would Bush not have to pay for it, Bush could have had his choice of any number of hot men of any type he wanted.

Gannon/Gucker is fugly, just the kind someone like Rove would like so as not to be intimidated by the guy's attractiveness.

And I doubt Gannon/Gucker is biding his time, waiting for a tell-all; R147 is correct. Either was given enough money to disappear or he really did disappear.

Correct, R152, but it's my opinion, without any evidence whatsoever, that if GWB wanted a male sex partner, he would someone hot.

Gannon is so fugly it's hard for me to imagine anyone would pay for it. Unless it was Rove, who might want someone just as fugly as himself.

Again, I don't have evidence of that.

Guckert made more than 200 appearances at the White House during his two-year tenure with the fledging conservative websites GOPUSA and Talon News, attending 155 of 196 White House press briefings. He had little to no previous journalism experience, previously worked as a male escort, and was refused a congressional press pass.

Perhaps more notable than the frequency of his attendance, however, is several distinct anomalies about his visits.

Guckert made more than two dozen excursions to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On many of these days, the Press Office held press gaggles aboard Air Force One which raises questions about what Guckert was doing at the White House.

by Anonymousreply 15610/27/2011

R156, weren't a lot of those visits after hours, as well? Like 7 p.m. or later?

I don't remember details, but I remember from the reports at the time, it seemed unbelievable the mainstream press had taken such a 100 percent hands-off policy on a story that was begging to be exposed.

by Anonymousreply 15710/27/2011

On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show either the entry or exit time missing. Generally, the existing entry or exit times correlate with press conferences; on most of these days, the records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.

Imagine the ensuing maelstrom if a gay male prostitute with a slew of solicitous websites (among them, militaryescorts.com) featuring nude photos of himself pimping his services was found to be kicking around the Obama White House.

Jeff Gannon/Guckert became the most famous male hooker since Joe Buck when he made more than 200 appearances at the White House posing as a journalist with the conservative websites GOPUSA and Talon News, attending 155 White House press briefings. He possessed no previous journalism experience, and had previously been refused a congressional press pass.

If that weren't enough to raise eyebrows, Guckert made more than twenty-four visits to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.

Heaven help us should Gannon/Guckert show up at the Obama White House.

Rush would have a coronary. Seriously, he might not survive it. Oprah would do 'When male hookers go political'. Simon and Paula would do 'America's Next Gay Male Prostitute'. Whoopi would surely storm off the set.

Fox would have a heyday. O'Reilly would point that extraterrestrial finger shrieking 'You want chaos! You want to see gay sex in the streets!' Michelle Malkin would call for jihad against 'al-Gayda' while demanding to see the President's HIV test results (while somehow managing to shamelessly mention the high HIV rate amongst black women in DC). Glenn Beck inevitably would rant on about the Islamic/gay hooker conspiracy out to take over the world. Roger would green-light a three-hour special to air right after the Superbowl 'The Pervert in the White House'.
