The Man Who Knew Too Much Talks

Former LBJ aide Bobby Baker "in recent years quietly recorded an even more unvarnished account of his anything-goes-era in Washington," Politico reports.

"His recollections--of an age when senators drank all day, indulged in sexual dalliances with secretaries and constituents, accepted thousands of dollars in bribes and still managed to pass the most important legislation of the 20th century--were collected by Donald Ritchie of the Senate Historical Office in interviews with Baker in 2009 and 2010. The resulting 230-page manuscript was so ribald and riveting, so salacious and sensational, that the Historical Office refrained from its usual practice of posting such interviews online."
