Have no problem with republicans cleaning out the duds. Get Ensign and SC governor out too!

Too bad, demoncrats don't do the same. They keep their duds and protect ie, Charlie Rangel, Barnie Frank,Alan Grayson-billionaire nut, Blumenthal the Vietnam liar, Chris special mortgate rates and millionaire dollar irish cottage-Dodd.

Clean out the republicans. Hope democrats clean out too. Not possible with Pelosi in power.

I'm sure the GOP is at least relieved that he wasn't caught with a teenage boy, or picking up men in restrooms. Thank gawd it's a HETEROSEXUAL scandal!:)

does he still get his lifetime health-care and government pension? do you think that is why the costs are so high? seems to be the only reason they run. the best health care and they do not have to really spend any of their money!

who cares who the guy is boinking...
was he breaking laws? was he peddling influence? was he screwing up the mortgage industry while making his friends billionares? was he manuvering huge government contracts towards friends or family members? was he cheating on his taxes? was he guilty of insider trading?

there's a WHOLE BUNCH of congressmen, republican and democrat doing ALL of those things, and NOTHING is happening to them!

looks like the media might (omigod! really?) have their priorities a bit fcked up!

I'll bet you don't make that complaint when a DEM gets caught with his pants down, huh? LOL

The media follow the "priorities" of the American public - which includes a love of scandal, sex, and cheating. They couldn't care less if a CongressCritter is taking money under the table, unless Limbaugh tells them to.

People get the media they deserve.

I agree. But, don't run on the ticket that you have great family values and you are a wonderful Christian.

I only have a problem with it when they say they are "devout Christians" and want to protect "Family Values". I really couldn't care less otherwise. As long as he does the job he is elected to do and his constituents are happy with him, have at it. It's really none of my business. Maybe it makes him more productive and happy.

Oh look, another sexually immoral politician. Just par for the course at this point, what's funny is how so many of these hypocrites on both sides preach family values, are anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-sex and use God as their defense, while they are engaging in sordid activities. Just should be an example for people to not look up to these people because they aren't perfect, nor morally, ethically and intellectually superior to anyone.

I think it's amusing that the conservative, holier-than-thou, family values Christian Republicans keep getting caught toe-tapping in restrooms, screwing hookers, on the down-low, or having affairs. The hypocrisy is amazing and the schadenfreude is very satisfying to me.
