Washington Post: Richard Blumenthal was a Hunk
Sen. Richard Blumenthal was the subject (read: objectified subject) of a Washington Post blog this afternoon featuring a 1980’s portrait of the then federal prosecutor.
The photo comes from a previous article published in the Post which wrote: He looks rather like a Jewish Robert Redford in a suit and tie, and evidently has prompted a fair share of female hearts to flutter. The photo was posted on Washington Post's Reliable Sources blog, which covers gossip and celebrities in D.C.
Ironically, Blumenthal, who never shies away from a news camera or microphone, was tasked with investigating leaks to the media in the Abscam scandal. His good lucks apparently attracted the attention of the Post who then featured him.Washington Post: Richard Blumenthal was a Hunk
