“60 Minutes’’ reporter Steve Kroft’s greatest fear was not that his wife would find out he was carrying with another woman. It was that “right-wing zealots” would learn about the affair and use the tawdry details to try to destroy his career and CBS. The implication seems to be that he was less concerned about left-wing zealots learning his little secret, which shoots to hell the show’s network’s oft-repeated claim of ideological neutrality.
The New York Post reports that Kroft insisted that his mistress, 41-year-old Lisan Goines, “dress low-key — like ‘Laura Bush’ — with him in public to keep things hush-hush.”
The sexts between Kroft and … 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 the often-racy texts, Kroft occasionally went off-topic to boast about his buddy-buddy relationship with Barack Obama, whom he referred to as “Barry.” He also let slip in one of the texts that Obama “hates” his attorney general, Eric Holder.
But most of the texts were of a highly sexual nature. In several of them Kroft details his various states of arousal — and the limits his age, 69, are imposing on his libido. “Too old and Sick to j- -k off,” reads one text to Goines from last March. In another post from 2011, Kroft wrote, “Very hard playing golf with A bulge in my pants.”
The parties involved declined to comment.
