According to Max Blumenthal in the Daily Beast, former Republican Congressman Chip Pickering kept a secret diary in which he wrote about his extramarital affair with Elizabeth Creekmore Byrd at the infamous C Street House in Washington, D.C.

The judge would not allow the diary to be introduced at Pickering’s divorce hearing on July 7 and placed it under seal at the Mississippi courthouse.

However, Mrs. Pickering has filed an alienation of affection suit against Byrd, and it is possible that the diary may be made public in this lawsuit.  Apparently other members of congress and residents of the C Street House are worried about what Pickering had to say about them in his diary.
