Details of a David Letterman affair have yet to be revealed, but the affair (actually, affairs) has been made public after a $2 million attempt.

David Letterman is the latest (following such great guys as Mark Sanford and John Ensign) to have his infidelities made public. While news of a David Letterman affair would probably be expected, multiple involved parties and some serious extortion make this story interesting.

The David Letterman affair, just like all these stories, should be a reminder that secrets don’t stay secret forever. Stats for Blackmail Fails Trending: Older & Chilly
