Scandals Turn to Sales
Wilson and her husband, retired diplomat Joseph Wilson—headliners in the Robert Novak-Scooter Libby leak case—sold this five-bedroom, five-bath Georgian Colonial in Foxhall for $1.8 million. The house has views of the Washington Monument, double decks, a library, and a two-car garage.
After resigning last fall—in the wake of a scandal involving sexually explicit instant-message conversations he had with teenage Hill staff—former Florida congressman Mark Foley also left town. He collected $899,000 for a two-bedroom, three-bath Federal-style rowhouse on Capitol Hill.
If these point to a new trend, we may see “for sale” signs in front of the homes of Libby or beleaguered former Smithsonian head Lawrence Small.
