Good Riddance.. Don't you wish we could drain the entire swamp?

Just two weeks after he won a hard-fought Republican primary in Indiana to keep his seat, Rep. Mark Souder will resign his office. Fox News reports that an affair with a staffer has become publicly known, and Souder will exit rather than face an Ethics Committee investigation

  • Personally in my opinion, what someone does in their personal life is of no concern to me.

    So if Obama was proven to be a cheating, lying, pot smoking person, you would have no problem with supporting him or his CHARACTER as the leader of the most powerful country on Earth?! Oh wait! LOL :o)

  • Eight-term Rep. Mark Souder will announce his resignation Tuesday after it came to light that he was conducting an affair with a female staffer who worked in his district office, Fox News has learned.


    Multiple senior House sources indicated that the extent of the affair would have landed Souder before the House Ethics Committee.


    Elected as a family values conservative as part of the Republican revolution in 1994, Souder survived a tough re-election challenge in 2008 and survived a contested primary two weeks ago.

  • Good God, WHY haven't politicians learned about the internet yet?! LOL And WHY don't they know the old saying that "two people can keep a secret, as long as one of them is dead!"

  • Sounds like a smart guy. He didn't try and deny it and he is resigning. Whats your problem. Surely you don't think it's only politicians doing it?

  • Souder was absent from Washington most of last week, missing multiple votes and only voting on Thursday. While the rumors had been flying, Souder claimed that he was at home tending to his ill wife.


    Or more likely tending to his wounds he received as a result of his wife finding out about the affair.  I agree, good riddance.  8 terms is too long anyhow.  What a sleaze ball.

  • Its the bed they made when they went after Clinton and now they have to lie in it. Personally in my opinion, what someone does in their personal life is of no concern to me. People cheat on their spouses all the time and don't lose their jobs over it. But when your a part of a political party or group whos going to be all preachy about morals you get what you deserve if you can't live up to your own finger pointing.
