In another political sex scandal in Britain, one of Prime Minister Tony Blair's closest political allies is accused of using his influence to get a visa for his lover's nanny. Home Secretary David Blunkett's affair with a married magazine publisher is a potential embarrassment to Blair, who faces a general election in May. NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports.
