Florida Democrat Congressman Using Tax Payer Money to Silence Mistress

Florida Democrat Congressman Using Tax Payer Money to Silence Mistress

We got proof of the circle of corruption in the Democrat party. In the span of many months, we seen Obamas economic advisors, Jimmy Johnson and Frank Raines, having ties to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Congressman Barney Franks conflict of interest having a male lover with Fannie Mae, Senator Chris Dodd getting sweet mortgage deals and huge payoffs from Fannie Mae, and Congressman Rangel with IRS problems.

To round this off, we have a Democrat Florida congressman seeking to probe himself after being caught in a immoral marital affair.

Today straight from the Associated Press, reporter Brian Skoloff gave this revealing article showing misconduct of a congressman who ran a campaign on ethics and reform. It upsets me to know that two wrongs don't make a right. In this example, Foley was ousted for a non-sexual relationship with a male page, which was wrong, while Mahoney used tax payers money to silence the girl who he had a sexual affair. When will this culture of corruption end? It's non-stop. Please continue to read Skoloff article.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney, married with a child, declined to say Monday whether he had carried on an affair with a former aide and paid to keep her quiet, then called for an investigation by the House ethics committee into his own conduct.

Mahoney issued his statement hours after ABC News reported on its Web site that he had agreed to pay $121,000 in March to a former mistress and staff member after being threatened with a sexual harassment lawsuit. Mahoney said he would be vindicated.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also called for an investigation.

The network, citing unnamed current and former Mahoney staff members, said the congressman began his affair with Patricia Allen, 50, in 2006 while he was campaigning for Congress, promising to return morals to Washington.

Mahoney won the race after former Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Foley resigned when it was revealed he sent lurid Internet messages to male teenage pages who had worked on Capitol Hill.
