Secret Service's Disclosure of "Temporary Appointments" Granted to "Jeff Gannon" Reveals That the Service Can Only Account for 49 Days of Security Clearance for Gannon Out of the More Than Two Years He Spent "Reporting" in the White House Press Corps
By Advocate Staff
We've covered the Gannongate scandal so many times in this space, we can't, in fact, easily or comprehensively link to our coverage of this enormous, stunning, and almost criminally under-investigated scandal without running out twenty or more links in the first paragraph of this article.
Suffice to say that if you begin reading The Nashua Advocate archives (to be found on the sidebar to the right) on February 16th, 2005, and continue reading the next month's worth of articles, you'll have a fairly good primer of where our story stands so far, to include a coordinated effort between "Gannon" and the G.O.P. to bring down U.S. Senator Tom Daschle last November; out-and-out lies from the Bush Administration and the Republican Party of Texas regarding the scandal; Democratic calls for a Congressional investigation which were gleefully ignored by the supposedly upright and national security-conscious Republican Party; and much evidence (see here, for example) that Gannon was a White House propaganda plant, if not much, much (and salaciously so) more.
[And that's just a taste of what's out there--to appreciate each and every mind-bending twist and turn in this saga, one really has to peruse the entire Advocate archives from mid-February to mid-March].
So what a story this is: a practicing gay hooker infiltrating the White House press corps after being hired by a fictional conservative news service, despite having no journalistic experience or professional credentials whatsoever, despite using an alias, and despite failing every possible measure for legitimate entrance into the hallowed halls of the Bush Administration's secret lair.
That is, the White House--which, in fact, we own, not Bush.
Now the U.S. Secret Service has revealed damning documents which blow this already stranger-than-fiction (but wholly true) scandal entirely out of the water.
1. Secret Service Access Control Records which establish that so-called "reporter" "Jeff Gannon" (real name "James Guckert," "working" name "The Bulldog"; yes, we're serious) entered the highest-security building in the world--The White House--on dozens of occasions when there was no journalistic reason for him to be there, because, in short, no press briefing was being held. That's right, a practicing, alias-using gay hooker roaming the halls of the White House, doing God knows what for God knows what reason. Repeatedly. And what's even better, the Secret Service can't locate many of his "in" and "out" times for his hours-long forays into the People's House. Scandal?
2. The Secret Service has also now answered written interrogatories submitted to the agency by Democratic Members of Congress. These answers contain irrefutable proof that Gannon received extraordinary and entirely inexplicable special treatment from members of the Administration in accessing the White House under the dubious--even incredible--circumstances in which he pitched tent there for more than two years as a phony reporter and "professional" Bush Administration propagandist.
3. Top progressive news agencies like Raw Story are already starting to put together some of the pieces of the puzzle in response to this new evidence from the Secret Service.
And the picture isn't pretty.
Consider this excerpt from the article linked to above:
Guckert made more than two dozen excursions to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On many of these days, the Press Office held press gaggles aboard Air Force One--which raises questions about what Guckert was doing at the White House. On other days, the president held photo opportunities.
On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show either the entry or exit time missing. Generally, the existing entry or exit times correlate with press conferences; on most of these days, the records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.
In March 2003, Guckert left the White House twice on days he had never checked in with the Secret Service. Over the next 22 months, Guckert failed to check out with the Service on fourteen days. On several of these visits, Guckert either entered or exited by a different entry/exit point than his usual one. On one of these days, no briefing was held; on another, he checked in twice but failed to check out.
"I'd be worried if I was the White House and I knew that a reporter with a day pass never left," one White House reporter told Raw Story. "I'd wonder, where is he hiding? It seems like a security risk."
In fact, if this were the Clinton White House there would be a Senate investigation with full subpoena power being undertaken right now.
And indeed, the Ranking Minority Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, U.S. Senator Joe Biden (D-DE)--a man who knows a thing or two about identifying and investigating grand-scale security breaches in the White House and in American government--has said publicly (on television, no less) that he thinks an immediate investigation is warranted.
And that was before this bombshell from the Secret Service, which establishes Gannongate as, at worst, a massive national security scandal, at least a stunning propaganda scandal, and quite possibly--as The Advocate has been speculating longer than just about anyone, since February 16th--a homosexual sex scandal involving top members of the Bush Administration.
Only the light of inquiry will uncover the filth, graft, media manipulation, and possible criminal activity which undergirds this story.
So, any bets on whether the Moral Majority in Congress will be willing to investigate a gay hooker with a false name traipsing through the maximum-security White House without A) a care in the world, or B) any reason whatsoever to be there, particularly since he's claimed publicly (which we now know to be a lie) that no one in the Bush Administration did him any special favors?
Oh, but you bet your ass they did him special favors, and not merely in allowing him to be one of the few reporters called on at the President's (ultra-rare) January 26th, 2005 press conference.
The Bush Administration, and no one else, made this now-discredited reporter famous and violated traditional, long-in-place White House credentialing and security policies in order to do it.
What precisely did they get in return, from a gay hooker with absolutely no professional credentials in any other sphere of operation?
Where's a rocket scientist when you need one? to check - on the days that Gannon was at the White House, was Rove there also? If not Rove, who? I know that to even mentioning this is Un-American, Un-Patriotic, and anti-Jesus. But, if true, the people have a right to know, in light of the anti-gay prejudice which pours out of their hypocritical mouths every day. Plus, it would be funny as hell.
By nights her hubby did not come home and match it with the nights Gannon did not check out! It's well known he is the type that can be had, and just why is it he had to leave the guard? Could it be he mixed more than coke and smoke? Inquiring minds need to know!
