I’ve never heard it outside the beltway. Over the last 30 years or so I’ve visited the Washington DC metropolitan area fairly often, probably averaging at least once a month, so I get a little of the local gossip.
Bill Clinton gossip was always the funniest, supposedly the man drove his bodyguards and other handlers crazy, always darting into crowds to kiss babies or eat street food, detouring into McDonalds to get cheeseburgers and just generally making it impossible to protect him.
I imagine some of the more salacious rumors probably come from prostitutes. I have friends who do good work with HIPS* and believe me there are a lot of sex workers in the Washington area. Like, really really really a lot, even compared to Baltimore or Philly.
* FAIR is active there, too; there’s apparently a significant amount of underage trafficking in our nation’s capitol. The cops harass both organizations pretty constantly.
