Why can't they keep it in their pants?

ATLANTA — Georgia's powerful House speaker resigned Thursday after a suicide attempt and allegations by his ex-wife of an affair with a lobbyist.

Glenn Richardson, the state's first GOP speaker since Reconstruction, had won sympathy from even his political enemies when he revealed last month that he attempted suicide by swallowing sleeping pills. But then his ex-wife went on TV and accused him of having "a full-out affair" with a lobbyist while they were still married.

Richardson did not address that allegation in a brief statement issued through the House communications office in which he said he will leave both his position as speaker and his House seat on Jan. 1. He did mention his recent admission, made in the wake of his suicide attempt, that he has grappled with depression.

They have to know by now it WILL come out.....What is wrong with these MEN?

  • I think its all a power thing, they do not think anyone will find out and if they do- they will not tell. Each of these men think they are more powerful than those poor saps that "got caught". I also have to wonder about these women willing to sleep with married men- do people have no shame or what?
