Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN), a champion of abstinence education and traditional family values, will resign effective Friday after an affair with a female staffer in his district office, he announced today.
I never tire of these stories.
It's just more evidence of my long-standing view that those who publicly scream and preach the loudest about morals, ethics and family values are usually the ones with something to hide.
Therefore I rejoice at the sudden and magnanimous downfall of Congressman Souder - not because I gain some sadistic pleasure from seeing other human beings suffer, but because fraudulent hypocrites like the not-so-honorable Republican Congressman are dangerous people when in positions of power and subsequently have absolutely no business crafting laws that govern other people's lifestyles and behavior.
**Side note: I guess this means it's time to update ye olde GOP Sex Scandal Flow Chart.
