Let’s Play Guess The Party Affi….Huh? They Mentioned It?

Apparently, the big wigs at ABC News are sloshed today. How did they allow this? Congressman’s $121,000 Payoff to Alleged Mistress: Tim Mahoney Elected to Remove ‘Ethical Cloud’ of His Disgraced Predecessor, Mark Foley

West Palm Beach Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL), whose predecessor resigned in the wake of a sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him, according to current and former members of his staff who have been briefed on the settlement, which involved Mahoney and his campaign committee.

Mahoney, who is married, also promised the woman, Patricia Allen, a $50,000 a year job for two years at the agency that handles his campaign advertising, the staffers said.

It’s a long story over there, but, it boils down to three words: Culture of Corruption. The affair began while Mahoney was running AGAINST Foley.

I have a feeling that the three writers, Emma Schwartz, Rhonda Schwartz, and Vic Walter, will be having a convo with some folks at ABC News for daring to print that story with just a little over 20 days to go till the election.

The big question is, will the GOP get off their butts and take advantage of this? Call for Mahoney to resign? Doubtful. Honestly, most of them have lost their spines and willingness to fight.

As Captain Ed points out, the story even mentions that the Democrat tried to cover this up. Say, I wonder what Nancy “Those who covered up Mark Foley’s behavior must be held accountable” Pelosi will have to say about this.

Don Surber thinks that the water should be tested for Viagra in the 16th District. Oh, and that Mahoney should resign, just like he called for Foley to resign.

Jammie Wearing Fool writes that the media will do exactly the opposite of when Foley was the subject, especially since “adultery is a resume enhancer for Democrats.” Think John Edwards.

More: Well, Queen Nancy is calling for an ethics probe of Mahoney. Seriously, though, do you think it will go anywhere, and that a Dem congress will find Mahoney wanting? More likely, the issue will be buried in committee.

Heh heh. DUmmies are losing it. Not going to excerpt since this is cross-posted, language, but, humorously, one DUmmy calls Mahoney a GOP in Dem clothes, and another calls him a Fundy. Reality Based Community! 🙂
