Well, it’s not as if anything will happen since this guy is one of the major Obama suck-ups in the media. If he was even perceived to be conservative his career would be finished.
The Manhattan mistress of married “60 Minutes’’ newsman Steve Kroft sent him sexy lingerie photos during their affair, but he insisted she dress low-key — like “Laura Bush” — with him in public to keep things hush-hush, according to newly revealed texts.
A source close to Kroft’s lover told The Post that the TV hotshot was “really paranoid about right-wing zealots” finding out about their affair and using the tawdry details to try to destroy his career and CBS.
He’s on to us.
The sexts between Kroft and Lisan Goines — obtained exclusively by The Post — include a nude selfie of the lusty lawyer that she sent to her much-older lover. Other photos show her wearing a red thong and busting out of a black bra.
But “dress in Washington is Either professional or Laura Bush,” Kroft messaged his illicit squeeze in advance of their September 2011 play date at the Park Hyatt on 24th and M streets in DC.
“Don’t dress like Beyoncé,” Kroft warned the Harvard-educated beauty, according to the source.
In addition to fearing the zealots, Kroft, 69, was “beyond terrified” that his wife of 23 years, fellow journalist Jennet Conant, would find out about the affair, the source added.
Too late for that, Steve. And why is it you hate black people so much?
“He was unwilling to be seen publicly with [Goines] because she’s black — because they’d be more noticeable,’’ the source said.
The source, however, said Kroft was proud to boast to Goines about his closeness to the leader of the free world — and let slip that Obama “hates” his attorney general, Eric Holder.
Hmm. That seems newsworthy. Maybe 60 Minutes should look into that.
“[Kroft] definitely said Obama feels comfortable with him, because he was the first person to take him seriously when he was running for president,” the insider said.
“They have a rapport. They used to smoke together.”
What were they smoking? Then Kroft moves on to Bill Clinton territory:
“Very hard playing golf with A bulge in my pants,” Kroft texted Goines of the resulting handicap.
“I’d like to see just how hard it is,” Goines parried.
