Abramoff/Scanlon pleas brought to you by slutty manicurist

DC Media Girl, whose only faults in the whole wide world are
  1. She doesn't post very often.
  2. Her site doesn't offer RSS feeds for her blog.
found an unexpected little tidbit in the Abramoff/Scanlon bribery scandal. Scanlon was apparently ratted out by his ex-fiancee, Emily Miller, who was bitter about Scanlon's impending marriage to a manicurist. Miller had worked as a press secretary for Tom Delay. Later, she was apparently the minder appointed to make sure Colin Powell didn't say anything the administration would not approve of, in addition to playing a minor role in the 2000 voter scandal in 2000.

Who is this mystery woman, this manicurist trollop who has unhinged the most magnificent fund-raising machine the world has ever known? Is she a Democrat? Does she do french tips? Did Scanlon plead guilty to keep his fragile flower off the witness stand? Will she be the Fawn Hall of this decade — after all, sometimes you have to go beyond the written law? And most importantly, were the intellectual underpinnings of the neoconservative world acquired from Max Shachtman and Leo Strauss — or from the collected episodes of Dynasty and Knots Landing?

Inquiring minds want to know. A restless world awaits, nay, demands answers.

I'd make it a Dynasty/KnotsLanding deal. Maybe a bit of Dallas, too.
