HETEROSEXUAL SCANDAL UNCOVERED!
The nation's capital is still reeling
after being hit by the biggest bombshell
since Watergate. Elizabeth Ray, an admitted heterosexual, landed a direct hit
weeks ago when she accused Rep. Wayne
Hays, D-Ohio, of various heterosexual
escapades at the taxpayers' expense. Rep.
Hays, known for some time to be a heterosexual, first denied having committed any
heterosexual acts with Ms. Ray but later
on, as evidence mounted, admitted having
a heterosexual relationship with her but
claimed it was not at government expense.
Ms. Ray also claimed to have carried
on heterosexual liaisons with other members of Congress. News reports began to
surface that FBI investigators had unearthed a large heterosexual ring operating in the Capitol corridors. The ring
includes a close-knit group of political
friends who have carried on their heterosexual affairs discreetly, so as not to
alarm their constituents back home. Large
parties attended mainly by heterosexuals
were reported. Other low-ranking government employees began to come forward
admitting their heterosexuality and claiming to have been given their jobs in
return for certain heterosexual favors
they provided for various congressmen.
Investigations are still underway
at this time, with no final report having
been made, leading one to suspect that
heterosexual politics are rampant in the
Capitol and that only the tip of the iceberg has been uncovered. Perhaps the
final report will enable Congress to rid
itself of those self-proclaimed heterosexuals who have indulged their satyric
desires at the taxpayers' expense.
