So W. Mark Felt is Deep Throat.
Is it any wonder DC has been able to keep so boring a secret? Hell's bells, Linda Lovelace--who starred in the porn movie that gave us the pseudonym--had a far more interesting story. But Felt's tale isn't without a chuckle itself. It seems the motivation for Felt to become the famous leak might have been simple revenge for not being promoted to FBI chief in the wake of his hero Hoover's death and/or for the Nixon administration's meddling in FBI affairs. Hardly the noble hero the Left has been fantasizing about for the last three decades. Felt was a pig and a selfish one at that.
