The husband of Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), one of the most powerful Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, is the "galloping favorite" to buy Newsweek from The Washington Post.

The purchase would mark an odd synergy between a congresswoman with access to the most clandestine intelligence available, and an agenda-setting newsmagazine.

According to Politico's "Morning Score," a newsletter which cites no specific sources, Sidney Harman is favored to win control of Newsweek. The Washington Post recently put Newsweek on the block amidst a rapid circulation decline.

Rep. Harman ranks among the richest members of Congress, with $160 million in assets, according to US News and World Report.
