Wasserman-Schultz on Weinergate: It’s Okay, He’s a Democrat
(By Michael Alan)
This goes beyond Rep. Foley, it goes to the values of the Congressional leadership. These are not family values, these are not American values.
What I’ve called for is an investigation to be completed within 10 days. And quite honestly, yes, I do think that Denny Hastert should resign . . . I‘d like to see the Republican caucus call upon their leadership, Speaker Hastert, Majority Leader Boehner, to get this resolved quickly. Do it before the election. And I haven‘t heard them say that. They‘re saying have the FBI investigate, have the House Ethics Committee investigate. They need to push their leadership to get this resolved so that they can move on, and we can make sure that we can restore the trust that they have shaken the public in Congress.
But TNR‘s Jonathan Chait, who is one of the few lefty bloggers honestly covering this story, points out a Vanity Fair piece that suggests similar evidence of Weiner’s issues as far back as 2001:
The [interns in their early twenties] are heckled as they enter. “Tell us your name and where you are from,” says one of the men . . . The evening glides along in a gently tipsy manner. “You are very beautiful girls,” one man keeps repeating . . . Their real names and states are as follows: the auto-parts salesman is Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.); the lean Mike is Michael Capuano (D-Mass.); the jolly guy who imitated Brando is John Larson (D-Conn.); the man who was worried about interns is Robert Brady (D-Pa.) . . . The next day, New York’s Anthony Weiner finds the time to hunt down Diana’s E-mail address. He writes that he hopes they might meet again. Diana is overwhelmed that he’s managed to think of her on a day that must be heavy with import and emotional intensity. Last night he mentioned that he’d be going to Manhattan to inspect the World Trade Center wreckage with the president. They’d be traveling together on Air Force One . . . She has left Anthony Weiner dangling, after he E-mailed her that she should come and visit his office “in person.”

Or, maybe the Foley flap was a chastening event for her, after she reflected on it.

Complicity of the democrap Congressional leadership and with the active help of the liberal media. The liberals' defense is that they have no standards so you can't expect them to act morally or to resign for immoral conduct. Since republicans do pay service to moral values they are much more likely to have to resign on disclosure of such conduct.
@ Cliff ….
That's a good one. 🙂
Mark Foley and Jim Kolbe both went after 16-year-old boys.

Thank you Auntie. Of course that makes it perfectly okay, doesn't it?
What a bunch of hypocrites.
