Ahhh, let the mud slinging phase of the election begin. Heck, that's the only way Obama got his Senate seat in the first place. It'd be nice to get this seat back, and maybe a few more. But, Democrats are held to far lower standards than Republicans.

At least he wasn't trying to hit on underaged boys.... But he is still a complete moron. What kind of delusions make these politicians think they are immune and are going to get away with this behavior. Republican or Democrat - they apparently are ALL CROOKED.

Your Correct, They're all Crooked. Look at Ted Kennedy, he killed a woman and continues to get re-elected. Bill Clinton Lied under oath. Most of them cheat on their spouses, either with men of woman. They live by their own rules without any punishment.

That's because Politicians really aren't citizens (in their minds)- they are demi-gods. With all the fraudulent voters Obama's Acorn folks have lined up in our State - I won't be surprised if the guy still doesn't get re-elected.

This is what is wrong with politics! He needs to be removed from office and run out of the state. We need to hold our politicians up to a higher standard!

We also need to get these people out of office who only want to be in office because they can not get a job and they need the money. I have changed my view on whether we should pay our politicians! I think it should be unpaid and done as a public service! Too many of these people need the work and cannot get jobs anywhere else!

Lie Cheat and Steal seem to be the norm and we would get rid of a of them if we watched them more closely.
We need to kick them out of office and send them to jail! It is time to actually police our political officials and do something to the crooks!

When asked about Mahoney's affair and the suit, Pelosi said she didn't know anything about the settlement.

"This is completely news to me."

LOL, typical Nancy. Everything is completely news to her. What a bubblehead.

Term limits! Throw them all out!

And Florida had the nerve to move their primaries-with support of both parties-because they believed this state sd. have more influence upon electing the nominee?

Hmmm. Interesting what a high opinion some of the folks in Florida think of themselve and this state considering the endless list of "events" such as this.

Impressive, real impressive.

I think they threw out the wrong guy. It seems that the RePERVLicans forget about the child molester who was in there to begin with... Mahoney is no saint and will face sanction, but that doesn't take away from a child molester, does it? It sure sounds like some people on here think so, and that truly frightens me!

You could learn a lot from this Elliot Spritzer cat...at least he only paid 8000 or so and he didn't have to hang with her.

So what he paid 121,000 grand to his former mistress, this is normal for a corrupt Congressman. People are you surprized anymore at what the US congress gets away with these days. SS please this is not news, everybody knows the US goverment are thugs with a licence to steal.

Mark resigned, lets see if this piece of scum does. Double standard. For once I am proud that ABC went live with the story. I'm guessing they wanted to beat FOX news on this one. BTW Wexler lives in MD and his kids are in Private school in MD so lets toss his butt out too
