    Timothy Edward "Tim" Mahoney (born August 15, 1956) was a U.S. Representative for Florida's 16th congressional district and a member of the Democratic Party. He was elected in November 2006 after his opponent, six-term Republican incumbent Mark Foley, resigned on September 29, 2006, after questions were raised about an email exchange with a congressional page.

    In October 2008, media outlets began reporting allegations that Mahoney paid hush money to a mistress to conceal an extramarital affair.[1][2]

    Tim Mahoney ran for reelection in 2008 but lost the November 4 election to Republican Tom Rooney.
    On September 18, 2008, the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call ran an article questioning Mahoney's residency status.[13] It alleged that Mahoney had registered to vote at "a horse barn" for the purposes of having residency in his Congressional District, while his primary residence was actually in another district.

    ...

    On October 13, 2008, ABC News reported that Mahoney had agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him.[1] Because Mahoney won this seat in 2006 after a sex scandal forced the incumbent to resign, several[15][16] considered it ironic that a sex scandal of his own coming to light a month before the election, especially since he first campaigned against such corruption.[17] Some professional political pundits, such as Charlie Cook, have already reclassified the race as "Leans Republican."[18] The FBI is looking into whether Mahoney hired the first mistress — and put her on the federal payroll — so she would not reveal their affair.[19]

    Mahoney admitted to having "numerous" affairs, "certainly more than two."[20][21] Mahoney's wife Terry filed for divorce in Palm Beach County court on October 20, 2008.
    A sterling record of morals and integrity.

    Re: Mark Foley to Become Talk Radio Host After Email Scandal

    By the way, why would anyone care what Foley is doing when the current Democrat sitting in his former seat is embroiled in scandal and it hardly gets a headline?

    Isn’t funny how real scandals are hardly reported by the media but a few non-descript e-mails from a Republican to Pages constitutes headline news and major attention?

    So it begs the question; why is the media ignoring this story?

    Indeed Mahoney was a moral hypocrite who had every right to be busted. Then the hush money to the mistress. Interesting note and thanks for posting it Right about the race Mahoney ran again Tom Rooney in 2008 when he lost. Mahoney had registered his to vote at horse barn to be counted as part of the district he was representing. Tom Rooney tried to make light of it only to find out he was registered at a dog track. Politicians...

    I wasn't aware he had lost in a re-election bid; it explains why the news about him just faded into obscurity.

    Mahoney isn't the current congressman from Florida in Foley's district Rooney is. Mahoney lost reelection when those things came to light.
