    Indiana Rep. Mark Souder Resigns After Affair With Staffer

    Eight-term Indiana Rep. Mark Souder announced his resignation Tuesday after admitting to an affair with a female aide who worked in his district office.

    Souder, a Republican, will will step down on Friday. He said in remarks obtained by Fox News that he "sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff."
    Kudos to Mr. Souder. He was caught with a GIRL. No rentboys here.

    On the other hand........................

    Just who the hell does he think he is? A Democrat? LOL.

    Finally.....

    "As I leave public office, my plans are focused on repairing my marriage, earning back the trust of my family and my community and renewing my walk with my Lord," his statement reads.
    This is for Democrats and Republicans both - Why is it that they always talk about walking with the Lord AFTER they get caught? Souder gets righteous. John Edwards got righteous. They ALL get righteous, and it is always after the fact. Is it about religion and getting right with God, or is it really about politics? They had better think twice. Once you are in Heaven, you don't run for office, so a little elbow rubbing with God, and a little name dropping of "God", just isn't going to work. LOL.

    Was he one of those "family values" preachy Republicans? They seem to have a knack for the complete opposite.

    Actually, he IS one of the "family values" guys.

    I just had a thought - Since this was a female, is he going to hold a press conference and announce that he is not straight?

    The one good thing that comes out of all of these hypocrites is that any time the GOP now tries to claim that they are the party of "Family Values"....they are laughed right out of the room.

    Seriously, I think it's the hypocrisy that is most disturbing in cases like this. when they pretend to be holier than thou supporters of "family values" and are anything but that...

    In some ways, had this guy not been like that I might say "Well, you know, it's none of my business."

    Leave Governor James McGreevey out of this.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    If you're going to cheat on your wife and screw teenage girls - for god's sake be a Democrat where they pat you on the back and tell you to "go get 'em!"

    It once more depends on if they are a hypocrite or not. And certainly there are plenty of examples of Republicans doing these things and being excused by their fellows.

    John Edwards, for instance, constantly talked about how important his family is to him, and paraded around his wife and spoke of family values. He was rightly criticized by Democrats for this and has no political future whatsoever.

    Newt Gingrich, on the other hand, cheated on his wife and served her divorce papers while she was in a hospital bed recovering from serious surgery. He's one of the possible GOP Presidential candidates in 2012.
