The latest in the continuing seeming non-scandal that is Baucusgate, the Senator's spokesman has revealed that Melodee Hanes, former aide to the Senator and currently his girlfriend, met with his divorce lawyer in 2007, months before Baucus and his wife separated. Baucus' spokesman contends that the meeting was in Hanes' professional capacity, to discuss how a potential separation could affect Baucus' schedule and other considerations. We know it has deeper implications because it involves government, but compared to the Tiger scandal this one is just plain dull.
