Democrat Caught in Underage Sex Sting

We heard about Larry Craig and Mark Foley ad nauseum, but I hadn't heard a peep about a 28 year old aide to Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) getting caught in a sex sting until I saw it over at NewsBusters. I can only surmise that if it would have been one of Orrin Hatch's (or any other (R)) aides, I would've heard about it before now...

The sad thing is I'm not even complaining -I guess because I've become complacent to this sort of thing.

I guess the AP saw the NewsBusters story too...and quickly got an article together:

"...According to court papers, James Michael McHaney, known as Mike, tried to arrange a lunchtime meeting with an unidentified person posing as a 13-year-old boy. When the witness, working under the supervision of the FBI, asked whether McHaney was interested in sex with a 13-year-old, McHaney allegedly replied, "I'll be there," the court papers said. He later asked for a photo of the child, the FBI alleged." (source)

The Smoking Gun has the court papers and some info the AP left out:

"[McHaney asked] for a photo of the child with whom he and the CW ("cooperating witness") would have sex and whether the boy had "any pubes." When told no, McHaney allegedly replied, "That's hot."
