Sally Quinn: lecher-magnet!

I had somehow missed La Quinn's self-parodic piece on being kept in the dark by hubby Ben Bradlee about Deep Throat.

And à propos of Washington secrets, she let's drop that Texas Republican Senator and lush John Tower
who was a friend of my father, had attempted to sexually assault me when I was 18 and a college freshman.

We don't get details. And it's a he's dead, she said.

Tower, it seems, is not the only senator to have importuned the woman:
As she describes in her book "The Party: A Guide to Adventurous Entertaining," she was first patted on the bottom at a Washington cocktail party by a randy Sen. Strom Thurmond when she was 17.

Happy parsing!
