The Kansas City Star characterized it as “a sexually charged relationship between House Speaker John Diehl and a college freshman in a Missouri Capitol internship program that shut down abruptly last month.”

“The conversations unveil a flirty rapport and suggest an intimacy between arguably the state’s most influential lawmaker and a young woman taking some pleasure in a secret association.”

“Diehl initially declined to comment. But about six hours after the story was posted online Wednesday morning, he issued a statement admitting the relationship.”

      Why would his room need bars? Did he participate in something illegal?

    It shouldn’t, but the fact that she was an 18 year old freshman makes it seem worse to me than if it was someone at least in their 20s.

    Damn, he sounds like a swooning high school sophomore. She’s 18 and he is how old? What a dork.
