Rep. Souder (Ind. – R ) steps down over affair issue……

Hypocrisy…….

Live by the sword…Die by the sword…..

From Fox News……

Eight-term Indiana Rep. Mark Souder announced his resignation Tuesday after admitting to an affair with a female aide who worked in his district office.

Souder, a Republican, will will step down on Friday. He said in remarks obtained by Fox News that he “sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff.”

“I wish I could have been a better example,” he said. “In this poisonous environment of Washington, D.C., any personal failing is seized upon, often twisted, for political gain. I am resigning rather than to put my family through that painful, drawn-out process. … We are a committed family but the error is mine and I should bear the responsibility. Not only am I thankful for a loving family but for a loving God.”

Multiple senior House sources indicated that the extent of Souder’s affair with the staffer would have landed him before the House Ethics Committee. Sources told Fox News that the aide, identified as Tracy Jackson, a woman in her mid-40s, would accompany the congressman to events and to record ads at a Christian radio broadcast station.

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.

SE…..GA-GOV: Woman Admits Affair with McBerry…..

From My Fox Atlanta:

ATLANTA (MyFOX ATLANTA) – In her first television interview Tuesday, a 24-year-old woman said as a teenager she had a romantic relationship with Ray McBerry, who is now a Republican candidate for governor. McBerry denied any misconduct with the young woman.

Rachel Gandee’s story first appeared on the internet and in newspaper accounts. Gandee addressed the allegations publicly Tuesday, in an effort she said to put the difficult time behind her.

“I mean, I trusted him so I went to him and he was the youth minister at the time,” Gandee said.

Gandee said her relationship with McBerry took place eight years ago, over a period of several months. At the time, Gandee was 16 years old.

“I guess it was like any relationship when you first start off you know, [kind of] kissing, a little bit of this, a little bit of that. It just [kind of] grew from there to what eventually happens,” Gandee recalled.

Gandee said she and McBerry had sex one time.

Gandee, who is now 24 years old, works in Fayette County as a medical assistant and her husband, Chris, is an emergency medical technician.

“At the time, I was too ashamed and scared and didn’t know what to think to say anything about it,” Gandee said.

Gandee is now speaking publicly about the relationship, just as the race for governor heats up.

McBerry has been running for governor under a conservative states’ rights banner and he has denied any misconduct.

“It’s not true. There was no romantic relationship on my end,” McBerry said. “The charge of any kind of sexual relationship came out of nowhere last week.”

OMG, my head is going to explode due to the sheer sleaziness shown by the sheer sleaziness that is having a sexual relationship with an underage girl. McBerry should be ashamed of himself, and I am re-endorsing John Oxendine for Governor.

Your thoughts.

UPDATE: Here’s McBerry’s e-mail to the GA Young Republicans on his disclusion from the debates:

Subject: Saturday’s Columbia County YR Gubernatorial Debate

Megan,

I have now contacted you twice regarding your violation of the Georgia YR’s rules in not inviting all qualified Republican candidates for the gubernatorial debate in Evans this Saturday. I expressed to you yesterday that I was calling for the purpose of trying to remedy the matter and make sure that you were aware that you are in violation of both the YR and GOP rules and principles; and you acted both unprofessional and discourteous by hanging up on me both times. Your assistant reported to my staff that you were not inviting me because of Ms. Handel’s decision to not appear at your debate if I did so.

Since you have heretofore not contacted my Campaign to let us know that you are extending an invitation to my Campaign to participate, as you are required to do per the Georgia YR constitution cited below, I am sending this email to you to instruct you what you are to do to remedy this problem immediately……….

Ex-New York Giant Tiki Barber leaves wife and two kids for his traveling companion….

Tiki Barber's girlfriend, Traci Johnson, told her family that she was just babysitting for him.

And dig this….his wife is eight months pregnant …with twins…….

And Oh, yea NBC has cancelled one of his gigs……

He better get busy quick….Four kids is gonna cost him…….


Tiki Barber‘s 23-year-old girlfriend convinced her family she was baby-sitting for the ex-Giants star as their romance heated up and his marriage fell apart.

Blond beauty Traci Johnson‘s father and aunt both believed the former NBC intern was helping out – instead of hooking up with – the three-time All-Pro and father of two.

“That’s what [her dad] Ernest told me,” said Johnson family neighbor Bob Drabik.

Johnson’s aunt, who lives near her small hometown of Pine Bush in upstate Orange County, confirmed that family members believed the stunner was taking care of Barber’s children. But a source close to the Barbers called the baby-sitting tale “100% categorically untrue.”

What’s not disputed is that Barber – who turned 35 Wednesday – split from his eight months pregnant wife after 11 years in a move that came out of the Big Blue.

What is it with Baby sitters and Sports guys?

And dig this…His wife is carrying twins….. due in two months……..

Update from the New York Post with pictures of Barber and his estranged wife Ginny…..

John Edwards man’s up….it’s his kid…He’s left his wife…..

In a statement timed to preempt a new book by a former aide, John Edwards admitted paternity of a daughter with former mistress Rielle Hunter, despite his previous denials.

“I am Quinn’s father. I will do everything in my power to provide her with the love and support she deserves. I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace.”

“It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me. I have been providing financial support for Quinn and have reached an agreement with her mother to continue providing support in the future.”

“To all those I have disappointed and hurt, these words will never be enough, but I am truly sorry.”

Also……

Elizabeth Edwards, whose cancer returned in an incurable form in March 2007, has stood by her husband, saying it does not matter to her whether her husband fathered a child with Hunter.

“That would be a part of John’s life, but not a part of mine,” she said. The couple renewed their wedding vows in July of 2007 to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.

But NBC reported that friends of the family say Edwards and his wife have separated.

The guy was always too slick for me…….

My heart goes out Elizabeth Edwards…..who isn’t an angel…but doesn’t deserve this…..neither does his grown kids…
