It's been floating around the blogosphere these past few days and now the White House has finally confirmed it: photos exist of either President George W. Bush with Jack Abramoff or the president with Abramoff's children. The photos were taken at a White House Hannukah party. Why did the White House finally admit that the photos were out there? Says the New York Times:
The general assumption in Washington was that celebrity tabloids would eventually buy and publish the photographs as the unforgettable images of a scandal that Mr. Bush's aides have been anxious to keep outside the White House gates.
