    Rep. Tim Mahoney paid $121,000 to a former mistress who worked on his staff and sued him after he threatened her job when she tried to end the relationship, former and current staff aides told ABC News on Monday. Mahoney, D-Fla., won his congressional seat in 2006 after Rep. Mark Foley, a Republican, was forced to resign in the wake of a scandal involving a congressional page. According to ABC News, Mahoney, who is married, started an affair with Patricia Allen while campaigning against Foley on a morality platform. Allen came on to his staff after he won the election...

    The disappointing results of the recent election have led to a lot of discussion about WHY this happened. In the search for the grand unifying theory of why we lost, there seems to be an inordinate amount of bitterness and recrimination.The problem is that we all are looking at this through the perspective of our own beliefs. Conservatives look at the loss of Chaffee and Northrup and think "If only we had had a real conservative in those seats." Moderates point to the loss of Hayworth and Santorum and caution about moving too far to the right. Some blacks look...

    Rahm’s War By Jenni Vinson Trejo November 9, 2006 “We have captured the House”, was the cry bellowed from the political battlefield on Tuesday night after Americans set out to vote. “We hope to besiege the Senate”, was the second cry uttered by elated political soldiers as they assessed the position they had fought their way to. Their general, Rahm Emmanuel, trained ballet dancer turned Clinton finance manager, turned Illinois Representative has been the driving force behind the successful Democrat campaign. Ironically, those most opposed to the idea of war, availed themselves of the science and techniques of the art...

    President Bush signed H.R. 2520, the Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Act of 2005, to expand federal support of [I assume this means: existing lines of] embryonic stem cell research. Vice President and Mrs. Cheney, on a multi-purpose visit in Pakistan, cut short their trip so the VP could cast a tie-breaking Senate vote on deficit reduction if necessary. Welcome to Sanity Island!
  • Hacking at Greenspan

    One phrase that no Member of Congress should ever use lightly is "political hack." The ironic possibilities are too rich. So we weren't sure whether to laugh or cry last week when Senator Minority Leader Harry Reid called Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan "one of the biggest political hacks in Washington." Mr. Greenspan's sin had been to suggest, in answer to questions posed by Members of Congress, that he favors personal investment accounts for Social Security. He couched his endorsement in his usual jargon and caveats, but he clearly touched a political nerve. Liberal pundits fired their air rifles, and...
