    Hmm. I have to figure out who the guest is tonight.

    Edit: it's Jim DiEugenio!

    With the name Otto Otepka brought up on the last 2 shows .. here's my admittedly dubious connection from Chandra Levy to Otto:

    What's the deal with the Justice Department’s Bureau of Prisons?



    Chandra Levy attended the University of Southern California to earn
    a Master's degree in Public Administration. While in California, Levy
    had served as an intern for Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, and
    California Governor Gray Davis. There she discovered the private world
    of high level politicians, many of whom live wild satanic sex lives. She
    moved from from her home in Modesto to Washington DC in September 2000
    to begin an internship at the Federal Bureau of Prisons...

    As an intern in the Federal Bureau of Prisons during the winter and
    spring of 2001, she worked in the Public Affairs section, and Press
    Office. Chandra's co-workers at the Bureau of Prisons praised her work
    and noted that Chandra was very computer literate. Her last duties at
    BOP before her unexpected termination, and her disappearance, involved
    helping arrange media coverage of Timothy McVeigh's execution,
    originally scheduled for May 16 2001. Chandra had a government signon
    for Lexis-Nexis that she used at the BOP. There are extensive personal
    information research capabilities at Nexis, and she had access to those
    and other highly confidential services as well in working with criminal
    related research at the BOP...

    What Did Otto Otepka Know About Oswald and the CIA?

    Jim Hougan
    wrote of a wiretap that was discovered that ran from Capitol Hill to
    the Esso building, terminating not in the basement, where most lines
    terminate, but on the top floor behind a locked door to which the phone
    company didn’t even have access. The floor was leased to the Justice
    Department’s Bureau of Prisons, and the room was marked as a “restricted area”. Goldberg had a source that claimed Walter Sheridan was the ultimate recipient of this tap. In addition, Bernard Fensterwald appears in this story
    When he heard that Goldberg was on the trail of the tap, he walked into
    Goldberg’s office and offered to help. Fensterwald convinced Goldberg
    to sign a statement that wasn’t true under the guise that this would
    help him. The situation became a nightmare for Goldberg. Fensterwald
    also played a role in protecting the tap.

    The tap was brought to the attention of Senator Long’s Ad-Prac
    committee by Bernie Spindel, a famed wiretapper himself. Spindel claimed
    government agents were constantly working on the tap. Fensterwald
    then committed a “blunder”: he requested information on the cable from
    the telephone company. This had the effect of sending a warning to
    whoever was bugging the hill. Because such requests took several days to
    process, the buggers had plenty of time to remove the tap that was
    under investigation. Why would Fensterwald, a sophisticated lawyer who sat on a committee specifically involved with wiretapping issues, make such an obvious mistake?
