Peter Orszag Dated Washington Post Publisher Katharine Weymouth

A New York Times article on the sex scandal involving White House Office and Budget Management director Peter Orszag contains an interesting detail: the nerdy-sexy official once dated the publisher of the Washington Post.

"His dates were noted (The Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth, among others)," the paper writes.

Both Weymouth and Orszag were included in a Politico story on "D.C.'s most eligible singles" this fall. Of Weymouth, they wrote:

Most newspaper types don't top the sexy charts, but Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth has changed the stereotype of ink-stained wretches. Ever since her sultry photo shoot for Portfolio magazine, Weymouth has been turning more and more heads around town. Divorced with three children, she doesn't have a lot of free time, but she's a catch.

Weymouth created a scandal of her own this summer when her paper planned to charge business leaders and lobbyists to attend "salons" with government officials and Washington Post journalists.
