Iraq Ambassador Nomination Jeopardized by Racy Emails to Journalist

As a former national security staffer for President George W. Bush, President Obama’s nominee to be U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, Brett McGurk, was supposed to garner bipartisan support for his confirmation.
That support has suffered after emails of his wooing a female Wall Street Journal reporter – perhaps jokingly referencing favors of access and information – were leaked last weekend, Senate sources said. He later married the reporter.
