Sometimes, I think Aaron Sorkin is writing the news these days. I missed this story on the road the last couple of days, but it's a rich one:

Federal investigators are trying to determine whether [former Republican congressman Randy 'Duke'] Cunningham and other legislators brought prostitutes to the hotels or prostitutes were provided for them there, according to a report in yesterday's Wall Street JournalĀ  and confirmed by the Union-Tribune.

The alleged practices were funded by a defense contractor. I doubt the other legislators are Democrats. The story is getting longer and stronger legs. DeLay is gone; Limbaugh has struck a plea bargain in return for mandatory drug treatment; Cunningham may have been given escorts as a bribe ... in the Watergate hotel! Who needs a miniseries?
