Edward Brooke's Affair "Reported" By Barbara Walters

Edward Brooke (R-Mass) was the first African American to be elected to the U.S. Senate by popular vote. On Tuesday he will become the first African American Senator to have his sexual indiscretions outed on Oprah by Barbara Walters. And if that isn't enough to get you dialed in to the O next week, Walters will also confide that she was the object of Brooke's affair.

According to reports, Babs will reveal that she and the senator had an affair that lasted several years during the 70s while he was speaking with a voice that would give moderate Republicans hope and she was speaking with a lisp that would give SNL comedy gold.

''I was certainly involved,'' Walters said. ''He was exciting. He was brilliant. It was exciting times in Washington.''
Yes, I'll bet D.C. was exciting once this rising pair caught a case of jungle fever.

So why did the power couple finally end it? Because they knew it was a mistake? To preserve their families? Out of respect for God's sacrament? Because it was wrong? Nope, they were just worried about their careers. They may have forsaken much, but at least they clung to their priorities.
