That opened the door for Nannygate II.

McNamee said he remembered seeing the Clemens family nanny parading around the party in a peach-colored bikini. Committee investigators interviewed the nanny, whose name is being withheld to protect perhaps the only innocent person in this entire affair, and she said she and Clemens‘ family had been at the party and had stayed at Canseco’s house that night.

Chairman Henry Waxman, a California Democrat, then said the committee had tried to get Clemens‘ lawyers to turn over the contact information for the nanny, which they did not do for several days.

In fact, in a move that sounded one step away from witness tampering, Clemens contacted the nanny and had her meet with him at his home before she was interviewed by committee investigators.

“The impression it leaves is terrible,” Rep. Waxman said.

“I thought I was doing y’all a favor,” Clemens answered.

In one ironic and pathetic moment, Rep. William Lacy Clay, a Missouri Democrat, asked Clemens, “What uniform will you wear to the Hall of Fame?”

Clemens joked that he didn’t hear the question.

If a perjury case is brought against Clemens, it could be prison orange.
