Taking the Fifth
And yesterday, after a gay escort appeared on Peter Boyles' KHOW radio show to reveal that he'd had a three-year relationship with an unnamed Springs religious leader, top Republicans were scrambling to figure out the mystery man's identity (and perhaps do some last-second uninviting). But by ten o'clock, the name was out, thanks to Channel 9: Ted Haggard.
Haggard, who heads the 14,000-member New Life Church, has denied being involved in a gay relationship. But don't look for him to be standing too close to Cheney tomorrow. --Patricia Calhoun
