DescriptionOhio Sen. Mike DeWine's office found itself linked to a storm of Capitol Hill gossip Wednesday amid reports that a low-level employee is the anonymous author of a salacious Web log.

The trouble began when the gossip Web site wonkette.com a snarky, often raunchy weblog well-read by Washington insiders because it covers Washington insiders highlighted another Web log, or blog, supposedly written by a Capitol Hill staffer.

The author, who identified herself as "the Washingtonienne," wrote that she is a staff assistant in a Senate office a high-turnover, low-paying job and detailed her sexual exploits, which include, she said, getting paid to have sex with older men including a "Chief of Staff at one of the gov agencies."

On Tuesday, the woman wrote: "I just took a long lunch with X and made a quick $400. When I returned to the office, I heard that my boss was asking about my whereabouts. Loser," according to wonkette.com.

It is unclear whether her musings are remotely true, even the editor of wonkette.com admits, but the gossip peaked Wednesday when wonkette.com and another irreverent site, swamp-city.com, identified the woman as an employee for Republican DeWine and reported that she had been fired.
