    Why can't these idiots keep their personal affairs discrete? Yes I understand they are human, and we all have needs but once the cat is out of the bag, own up to it and tell the world to kiss your behind! So what if they do or don't throw you out on your ear? It's already too late.

    What is the strange part: he's married, has a kid, and has the ignorance and audacity to POST pics on THAT website? What are they feeding these morons? I mean DOH! What an imbecile!
    "CraigsList" are you kidding me? What was he going to do,... start a male prostitution ring with him as the best offering? (snicker)

    Why is it that Republicans resign when caught with their hand in the cookie jar, but Dems just deny it, stay in office and hope people forget, which they do. Clinton, J.Edwards, Rangel, etc. all busted and stay in office.

    Yep, what he did was minor compared to the Libtard shennanigans. Slick Willy would have laughed that one off in a NY second......

    I guess the GOPers have no backbone.

    Edit to add.....
    Just saw the news report. This guy is more sleazy than I first thought - this ain't his first time doing this. Trolling for babes while married, told the chick he was 'divorced'.
    At least he took the honorable route and quit - instead of continuing to feed at the Goobermint Trough like the DemPigs......
