Mahoney MUST resign. I heard the tape of him bullying, threatening & berating his mistress. IF you've heard the tape, you now what a slimey punk he is, and you'll agree that he MUST resign. If you haven't heard the tape- please do so, so you'll know how low this POS is.

It is especially slimey that he put his wife out front like that as some sort of sick prop. It is funny to watch his political ads though:

He already has a lead in the polls and will most likely win. In a couple of weeks, you all will find a new cause to be passionate about. Get a life and leave him alone.

In case you didn't know, this is what politicians do. Bill Clinton did it and today, when he goes somewhere, he is greeted like a movie star, people love him.

Get over it and get a life. This is a non-story

Hope you don't choke on all that kool-aide you're guzzeling. Now the FBI is investigating, it turns out he has had at least TWO mistresses and he is a lousy legislater to boot. He is a puppet for Nancy "Her Royal Pelosiness" Pelosi, and we all know what a joke she is.

If the money came out of his pocket, who cares who he was sleeping with?

More emotions... Less logic. How do you "Feel."

Libs are Soooo anxious to make every negative bit of news about Obama a "non-story". ACORN, all his bad associations, his phoney tax proposals, his America hating wife, etc. You guys try hard but the real news about Obama is he is a realy bad guy in Lambs/Messiah clothing.

The problem is NOT just that he cheats on his wife. We expect that from most Democrats & a few Republicans. Lawyers are taught to lie, scam & cheat in college. He should resign NOW because he's lied about it, used campaign funds to buy her silence AND mostly because he bullied & threatened her. He can no longer be a congressman. Who does he think he is? Ted Kennedy? barney Frank? He's gotta go.

Cut and paste---

Mahoney's attorney said Wednesday that the lawmaker did not use campaign funds to buy the silence of a former aide.

Mahoney, a wealthy venture capitalist, used his own money to pay Patricia Allen and her attorneys $121,000 when she threatened to file a lawsuit after Mahoney fired her from his campaign staff earlier this year, said his lawyer, Gary Isaacs.

In his most recent financial disclosure form filed with Congress, Mahoney listed his net worth as between $3.2 million and $12.7 million.

Isaacs provided documentation of the payments to The Associated Press in an attempt to quash rumors that Mahoney, 52, may have used campaign money to pay off Allen, which could be illegal. At the very least, Republicans charge, it would be highly unethical.
