Yawn. He is retired! Does he do anything that affects our lives now? Why is this news? I really don't need news stories pointing out elected officials do one thing and say another. 2 faced? Elitist? Mightier than thou? Please.
Pretty shameful to keep this from the wife for 30 years.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Bring all of our troops back from overseas to help with the corruption clean up right here. We have the most immoral and corrupt group of politicians here in America. Why are we concerned about any other leader or leaders abroad? We have our own mess to clean up in Washington D.C..
A retired politician fathered a child 30 years ago. Big deal. I guess they had to hurry up and find a story on a GOP to pull some of the glare away from Jessie Jackson, Jr. They should have popped in something about Michelle Bachmann, that always gets the libs lathered up!
Did he give financial support for his son? He had 8 other children, also. Thirty years of secrecy! The son should have known way before this happened.
There is not a politican for either party who isn't a hypocrite, a fraud, a cheat or a low-life....period. We need term limits for all federal and state elected officials.
Disgusting! Another hypocrite.
Republicans talk about family values and honesty but here's yet another example of how they don't walk the walk. Newt Gingrich, Larry Craig, Pete Domenici, the list goes on and on. Others have affairs and sexual dalliances too but they don't have the hypocritical audacity to claim to be holier than thou like these phony "family values" Republicans do.
Another republican hypocrite. No surprise really.

He took public stands denouncing other's sexual picadillos if they were in the other party, why not himself? Did the Senator use his influence to get his illigitimate son a job in Washington? This would be rather newsworthy don't you think? Jessie Jackson Jr is a thief and deserves jail time! As I type, another story about him is being reported on the TV, he is not being forgotten by the media and he shouldn't be! It doesn't matter to which party he belongs his were criminal acts and he has at least owned up to it! While I dislike many GOP stands on issues and lean toward a more liberal view I won't condone crime from any of our elected officials. Ms Bachmann manages to put herself in the paper because of the ridiculus things she says and does or doesn't do! Including getting one of her campaign workers fired from the board that she had served on for years because of the theft and distribution of a private mailing list by Bachmanns staff while true to form Ms B keeps silent and lets it happen without condemming it publically or coming to the aid of her campaign worker. I'm not surprised at all, she frequently seems to behave in a self-serving way while ignoring many of the precepts of her declared faith while pursuing personal fame.
