Defending marriage, Republican style

That means having an affair and, in this case, another child as a result of it.
Representative Vito J. Fossella, a Staten Island Republican who was arrested on May 1 in Alexandria, Va., and charged with drunken driving, issued a statement on Thursday acknowledging that he had had an extramarital affair with Laura Fay, a former Air Force lieutenant colonel, and that the two of them had a 3-year-old daughter together.

It should surprise no-one that Fossella voted for the Federal Marriage Amendment twice:
Rep. Fossella voted for the Federal Marriage Amendment in both 2004 and 2006. It's always so important to protect marriage from the horrid threats posed by Teh Gay, which are much, much scarier than the threats posed by drunken husbands who have entire second families.

He also voted to ban gay adoptions in DC. And that makes sense: the damage caused to a child by being adopted by two loving people of the same gender vastly exceeds the damage caused to a three year old by having a father who can only drop by now and again, when his real family isn't paying attention, or to his three other children by growing up in a home where there are secrets no one can talk about.

Is this new? Why are we not surprised that the people who scream the loudest about "Values" are the ones who practice none in their own personal lives..

Why can't people see through the shit of these hypocrites?

I am sure that he will be re-elected once he holds a tearful press conference with his wife by his side and promises to be more faithful.

Or, he could follow the example of Nest Gingrich...

Probably because it isn't new.

I'm a little bit more optimistic--I think he may [be forced to] resign.
