Andy Coulson was found guilty, but Rebekah Brooks was acquitted in the British phone hacking case!
Gawker reports that emails involved in the upcoming British phone hacking trials will show that Rebekah Brooks slept with Rupert Murdoch, his son Lachlan, and Andy Coulson, her fellow News of the World editor who became David Cameron’s chief spokesman, but resigned in 2011 as the hacking scandal grew.
You’ll recall that the British press reported earlier this year that Cameron had been shocked by reports of an affair. Supposedly, the Brooks-Coulson part of the story was that sex scandal.
For those of you keeping score at home, Rupert is 82, while Rebekah is 45, slightly older than his soon-to-be-ex Wendi Deng, who is 44.
It looks as if the two people in the British sex scandal that has David Cameron freaked out and that the Daily Mail has said it can’t name for legal reasons might be Cameron pal Rebekah Brooks and former Cameron press secretary Andy Coulson, both awaiting trial in the Murdoch phone hacking scandal.
It would be embarrassing for Cameron, but for Brooks and Coulson, I think such a revelation would be the least of their problems.
