Body of Wife of Senior White House Official Found in Burning Car
Roll Call is reporting that according to the D.C. Fire and Metropolitan Police departments, Turtonís car was discovered ablaze in a row house garage, presumably the Turton home, in the 800 block of A Street Southeast near Eastern Market.
Turton worked as a lobbyist for the Raleigh, N.C.-based utility giant Progress Energy.
She was the former chief of staff to Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.)
Now this gets interesting, because Rosa DeLauro owned the house in which Rahm Emanuel lived rent-free during House sessions for five years.
Word from DC is that the place was wired for audio and video. Ashley Turton, as DeLauro's chief of staff, probably wrote the checks to pay bills on that condo and would be privy to "extra" expenses.
I had already written a thread about this here.
But it's seems all most threads get pushed of the first page pretty qucik.
