What ! SS is not only not endorsing Mahoney but calling for him to drop out too.
What about his record ? The one in Washington.
He didn't do a great job for his constituents the past two years? Isn't ones personal life their own? Not a word about whether his opponent is capable.......
AND, what about that potential for a filibuster proof Congress, SS forgot about that ? One would think the BIG picture would override any moral issue, after all the likes of Teddy K 's been
there for years .

Nope, even dignity and class have been tossed to the winds by Mahoney. Philandering erased all of the dignity and class. Beyond that, he voted for that crazy $700 billion Treasury bailout whose proceeds the Treasury Secretary can't even decide how to spend. There is one remaining test. It is that of voters. If they don't turn Mahoney out in a landslide, the voters don't have any class either.

Of course, not every Republican has resigned when embroiled in a scandal, but when I think over a quick list, it seems Republicans resign while Democrats remain defiant.
Nixon resigned, Clinton didn't.
Tom Delay resigned, William Jefferson won't.
Tim Foley resigned, Tim Mahoney won't.

If Alaskans can re-elect Ted Stevens after his felony convictions, the voters can re-elect Mahoney for having an affair that really only impacts his wife and their relationship.

don't forget alcee hastings who was impeached, convicted and forced out of a federal judgeship but then ran for congress as a demonrat and won...or the crack smoking mayor of d.c.

His personal life aside, Mahoney is still better than the hack that's running against him, and much better than the "Chicken Hawk' he replaced.
At least he chased women, not boys!

Not so with Gerry Studds. And he was reelected twice!

The investigation of financial improprieties is yet complete.

it is already a known fact that mahoney's mistress was put on the public payroll as a congressional aide...this is a misuse of public funds...even if he did not actually pay the $121,000 out of campaign funds...
mahoney cannot be an effective legislator after this...
he needs to do the right thing now and resign...
shame on all the democrats who support him regardless of the slime he is...the unions are giving him strong support...
in the future i will look very carefully into the background of persons supported by unions...
they have also lost my trust...

Rooney would have won anyway as it is a heavily Republican district. Mahoney only got in because Foley screwed up. So it will revert once again to a Republican seat.

The voters showed him. Let that be a lesson to any official who expects the voters to accept him with all his warts. Behave yourselves, dammit.
