'House of Cards' Actress: Senior Obama Official Told Me Reporters "Sleep with Sources"
Reaganite Republican ^ | 19 February 2014 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 02/19/2014 10:06:56 PM PST by Reaganite Republican

An actress on the Netflix original (hit) series 'House of Cards' says that in the course of doing research for the show -a story about a fictitious congressman, staring Kevin Spacey, and based on a BBC miniseries-  she was told by a "senior White House official that -as on the show- reporters DO sleep with their (married) sources... at least in this putrid regime.
Robin Wright -who plays Claire Underwood, wife of Spacey's congressman character on the show- said that in the course of researching her role, she learned some surprising things (to her, anyway) about what goes on in D.C. 

According to Wright, a "senior persion: in the Obama administration told her that reporters sleep with their sources, among other things
(I got $100 says it's Biden!).


Her conclusion? "D.C. is more corrupt than Hollywood. It really is. It’s more sleazy than Hollywood-
how much infidelity goes on." 


'Sleeping with sources' has been central theme in the plot of the show...

Hollywood and Washington DC. Two cesspools. Both could drop into the sea, and we would not miss them.

I think she is a hottie and judging from the above she must be a natural blonde.

Considering that these are democrat reporters we are talking about, I think this is too much information.

So she was a big enough idiot to marry the guy, but smart enough to dump him?

Yep, once married Penn and her most famous role was Buttercup. Just the kind of credentials I look for when deciding on the credibility of a source.

Charlize Theron can't take her eyes off rumoured boyfriend Sean Penn as she sits beside him flirting at his charity gala


She made Sean get rid of his gun collection.

Well she had a good argument - with all the hired armed security guards they have, they don't need to get their hands dirty themselves. That's for the little people.

I always think of her as "Jenny" from Forrest Gump...

It's already been exposed how many members of the media sleep with members of the Obama administration. There IS collusion between this administration and the major news outlets in America.

The mindset of Hollywood actresses who hook up with commie sympathizers is beyond me.
