    There's democrats caught in scandals that did resign and there's republicans caught in scandals that didn't. You're acting just like some liberal trying to turn this into a partisan thing. Idiots are on both sides. To act as though only republicans are forced to resign after stuff like this is just plain silly and you know it.

    My guess is because he felt shame. Maybe he didn't want to put his wife through all the garbage he's seen happen before when a politician cheats.

    I find it very sad when my party of "family values" sins. However, we are all sinners and at least my side tries to do the right thing.
    Dems don't even try, so any perverted or corrupt thing they do is just another day in the life of a Dem.
    Once again the party of 'family values' proves they are no better than anyone else.
    You consider it an insult to dare to say that your side of the isle is just like everyone else? That's not an insult, it's fact. Republicans can't keep their private parts to themselves any better than democrats can and vice-versa.

    Yeah he's really someone to look up to. What a hero! I'll bet his wife thinks so too!

    Conservatives have some kind of a victim mentality at the moment. They'll get over it.

    Has Charlie Rangle resigned, yet?

    A local Indiana repub congressman (Souder) blamed D.C. for his affair and said he wasn't going to put his family through the press scrutiny, so he resigned. If that isn't a victim mentality I don't know what is.

    BTW he was another one of those family values hypocrites while he was banging his staffer.

    Worst than his chasing skirt was his lack of common sense.

    You are a congressman and you place a picture of yourself with your real name online, holy crap. It was only a matter of time before someone recognized him.
    Now, none of this is illegal but this moron did the Republican Party a big favor exiting quickly. You have to give him credit there.

    Unlike the moron out here in Idaho Larry Craig who got caught in the men's public restroom and denied it all claiming he was just picking up filthy toilet paper off the floor with his bare hands.

    Do you honestly think that coming up with 1 stupid democrat that hasn't resigned means that my point that this shouldn't be portrayed in a partisan light is incorrect?

    Debating isn't solely about trying to make little jabs at the other side while saying little to nothing of substance. I could give a **** less about Charlie Rangle. I think he should be kicked out of office and thrown in jail. Not everyone is as partisan as you.

    Absolutely I find it insulting. Family values is one thing that attracts me to conservatives.

    I don't know how conservative Lee is (not familiar with him) but it still saddens me he would do that to his wife.
