Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN) To Resign Over Affair

Arch-conservative family values Congressman Mark Souder, elected in the 1994 Gingrich revolution, will be resigning today in light of the disclosure that he has been having an affair with an aide.  Sources are standing by to determine if the aide is a dead woman or a live boy.


“As I leave public office, my plans are focused upon repairing my marriage, earning back the trust of my family and my community, and renewing my walk with my Lord,” he said.

Yep, uh huh. Over/under on the lobbying firm he will join by November?


if I ever “take a walk with the lord” I hope its a silly walk

@Nabisco: Walk of shame with the Lord or hiking the Appalachian Trail?

@SanFranLefty: I’m just tired of these soulless political fucks who transgress and then drag the fucking community along with them. Hey Souder, your “community” doesn’t give a flying fig, it’s your wife who’s likely to kick you back to French Lick if you don’t shape the fuck up.

/ends rant/

@Nabisco: No pride I tell, you, this guy has no pride at all. Jeez, he’s acting like he’s a Democrat, resigning over this. What would Vitter/Ensign/Kyl Gibbons/Craig/Sanford do? Stick it out, man!

And this is such a boring story as it develops? Female aide? Consenting? Yawn. (And a little bit of “eeww” at the thought of hitting that).

Unless the aide is 17 or a MTF trannie or it comes out they were wearing diapers and dual-head dildos, this story is (yawn) dullsville.

Half a diaper, only for the usual hypocrisy and dragging the wife and kids through the mud.

@mellbell: My pre-caffeinated self meant the Nevada Governor. Why Kyl popped into my head as his name instead of Gibbons, I don’t know. I’m sure Kyl has a dildo, robe, or little boy in his closet.

@SanFranLefty: Ah, ok. I was thinking, “Damn, that one really flew under the radar, didn’t it? He should be loaning out his PR guy to those other saps.” And yeah, Gibbons is truly one for the ages.

@SanFranLefty: Your Mayor Goodhair has pretty much set the standard for affairs with staffers.

@Dodgerblue: Well, here’s a video of Souder’s mistress “interviewing” him about abstinence-only-before-marriage for a faux-news story. She also interviewed him about walling off the US-Mexico border and creationism.

@SanFranLefty: She seems too intelligent to get involved with a sack of shit like Souder.

Any of the wonkier types know what happens now, given that the Republican primary was two weeks ago?

@mellbell: Cook Political Report gives his district a Partisan Voting Index of R+14, yet the Democratic challenger in 2006 (who’s running again this year) kept him to within 9 points. Could be a very interesting race, regardless of which Republican ends up on the ballot.

Can’t watch it here at work, but TPM has a video of this clown and the woman in question waxing poetic on creationism, abstinence, and other dumb GOP ideas. Can’t wait to get home and watch ….

@blogenfreude: I couldn’t make it past 2 minutes. I thought he’d be crazier talking about teens fucking like while animals on the roofs of parked semis in desolate industrial parks while jesus rips his own eyes out in despair, etc. Sounds like the retarded pastor who likes to hang out at the rest home and beg for hand jobs from old ladies with Alzheimers.

@SanFranLefty: It was probably all that talk about abstinence that ratcheted up their libidos to the point of a mad rush to doff their clothes. (It’s hard for me to imagine how anyone can actually be a Republican, much less have intercourse with one.)
