    State Rep. Mike Horner ends campaign after being named in racketeering, prostitution

    State Rep. Mike Horner of Kissimmee, a leading Osceola County Republican and a rising star in state GOP circles, abruptly ended his re-election campaign Monday after he was named as a client in a prostitution and racketeering case.
    So what is the difference between this Republican and Republicans in sex scandals I have posted about before? It was a WOMAN this time. I'd like to buy Rep. Horner a beer. He should also go where sex scandals with the opposite sex abound - The Democratic Party. John Edwards would sponsor him in a heartbeat.

    Article is here.

    It's the double standard. If a Republican gets caught, he's out in a heartbeat. If a Democrat gets caught, he gets a committee chairmanship.

    John Edwards got a committee chairmanship? I didn't know that.

    He's a state representative, not a national representative.

    He wasn't forced out. He decided to stop campaigning.

    The most recent scandals where the accusation was male to female was Weiner, who WAS forced out.

    And Weiner was a Democrat. How'd that chairmanship go for him?

    He was just a client

    I was expecting that he was running a prostitution and blackmail ring. That would have been interesting

    I'm a client. Maybe I should go into politics.

    There are double standards some places, but not here. Weiner and Spitzer were pretty much forced out while David Vitter is still a senator.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Exactly, which is why THIS Republican should switch parties. LOL.

    And you say he wasn't forced out? He decided to quit campaigning? You don't think he would have been forced out had he continued? He merely saw what was coming after he got caught. It wasn't being a stand up guy. Had he not been caught, you can bet the bank he would have continued. I like to laugh when people start inventing excuses as to why Republicans should get a pass, while John Edwards gets what he deserves. LOL.
