WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Florida Congressman Tim Mahoney has called for an ethics investigation of himself amid reports that he had an affair and then paid the woman to keep quiet.
Minutes later Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also called for an investigation.
ABC News reported on its Web site Monday that Mahoney agreed to pay $121,000 in March to a former mistress and staffer after being threatened with a sexual harassment lawsuit.
The network, citing unnamed sources, says the congressman began an affair with Patricia Allen in 2006 while he was campaigning for Congress.

Was that taxpayer loot? If not, the IRS should've been all over that withdrawal.
I seek Congressman Mahoney’s removal from Congress.
This guy reminds me of the guy with the gun to his head while his wife laughs, and as he pulls the trigger on himself he says "Don't laugh, you're next!"
If he was a Republican, he would have been gone by now.
Maybe Charlie Rangel can give Mahoney some council on how to go about it ......
My guess is that it was campaign cash.
Don’t know about any of you but I cannot quit laughing that this guy ran against Foley’s write-in replacement because Foley was forced out. Now we have another scandal from the same RAT that presented himself as the Foley alternative.
Oust him from Congress and take back the seat for the GOP!
Depends on what the word gone means!
I thought from the headline that Pelosi would be investigated as well. Ah, I’m disappointed to see that’s not what you meant :-).
I would refuse that probe of Pelosi myself there, bud.
Will this get as much press as the Mark Foley scandal?
He hopes the HELL for a Democratic investigation. They will sweep it under the rug. Done over move on nothing to see.
Mahoney's Republican opponent: Tom Rooney
I hope Allen West, running for another Florida Congressional seat, has already called on his Dem opponent to publicly denounced Mahoney's actions.
Does this seal the investigation until after the election. Sure that will be fine for our “investigative” press.
Pray for W, Gov Palin and Our Troops
Palousie gets rid of NO ethic challenged pos.
Throw him a party, Nancy. He’s one of you.
OH! You mean the “FOLEY E-MAILGATE”?
Ironic. Foley’s Dem. replacement is caught in a REAL affair, REAL hush money, a REAL sex scandal, not just nebulous e-mails - and Fancy Pants Nancy and crew have been hiding it, obfuscating about it, lying about it. Dishonest people rationalizing away their own filth. He needs to resign Toot Sweet. Stat. Pronto!
Nickname anyone? I suggest “AT MY PLEASURE MAHONEY”.
This election is tough on the nerves. Having the words ‘probe’ and ‘Pelosi’ in the same article is just too much to bear!
Does anyone think Oliver Stone will make a movie about this?
How aboutMichael Moore? He’s doesn’t seem to be too busy these days.
Does this mean we are going to win back this seat?
