    Welcome to the club, Rep. Mark Souder. So you had an affair with a staffer. After you had been elected on a platform of family values. Take a number, it’s getting crowded in here. There’s Mark Sanford, who’s unusually fond of rambling hikes – and apologies. And Larry Craig, who enjoys playing footsie in airport restrooms. And John Ensign, who supported a federal ban on same sex marriages by proclaiming marriage is “the cornerstone on which our society was founded.”

    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.

    GEORGE SOROS’ INFILTRATION OF CPAC STATEMENT FOR THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD CONGRESSMAN MARK E. SOUDER (IN-03) FEBRUARY 8, 2006 Mr. Speaker, George Soros, the radical liberal financier who dedicated himself to defeating President George W. Bush in the last election, has taken a lesson from Jack Abramoff. As much of Abramoff’s pernicious lobbying technique has come to light, we’ve seen how he was adept at manipulating certain conservative organizations to pursue a decidedly anti-conservative agenda, namely the promotion of gambling. By working hand in hand with the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), for example, he was able in 2000 to undermine conservatives’...

    The Washington Timeswww.washingtontimes.com HHS-sponsored forum touts 'harm reduction'By Cheryl WetzsteinTHE WASHINGTON TIMESPublished August 16, 2005 The Department of Health and Human Services is one of the "primary sponsors" for an upcoming Salt Lake City conference on methamphetamines whose organizers back the "harm reduction" approach to drug policy, which Republicans see as form of legalization.     Rep. Mark Souder, Indiana Republican, said in an angry letter sent Friday to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Michael O. Leavitt that the conference's approach to end the nation's "war on drugs" in favor of programs that try to limit drugs' harmful effects undercuts...

    Candidate's Stage Fright Ends Debate Parra: 'I Just Can't Do This' October 22, 2004 FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- A northeastern Indiana congressional candidate said she abruptly ended a debate because she got stage fright. Democrat Maria Parra walked off a television stage Thursday, ending what would have been her only debate with incumbent Republican Mark Souder in the 3rd District congressional race.

    One of the most thoughtful politicians in Washington doesn't believe in the theory of evolution. I thought I'd introduce him to you because over the next week we're going to hear a lot of stereotypes about Republicans and especially social conservatives. It might be useful to interrupt those prejudices with the more complicated reality. Representative Mark Souder grew up in a small town near Fort Wayne, Ind. His father owned a general store and then a furniture store and was the beneficiary of what Souder calls small-town socialism. People would pay more to buy from local merchants to keep out...

    This winter our Wilberforce Forum presented our second Capitol Hill lecture series: “Contours of a Christian Worldview.” Our goal is to encourage members of Congress and their staffs to apply a Christian worldview to their primary calling—making laws. One of the speakers who participated in both the first lecture series in 2000 and this year’s lecture series is University of California at Berkeley scholar Phillip Johnson, who also received our Wilberforce Award this year. In 2000 Prof. Johnson addressed for the members of Congress the need to teach the controversy surrounding evolution. Claiming that evolution is established fact, you see,...
