(Now Ex) Senator admits to fathering child of another Senator's daughter

You can't make this **** up!

http://news.yahoo.com/former-senator...-politics.html

Quote:
Former New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici revealed today that he fathered a son in an extramarital affair with another senator's daughter more than 30 years ago and has kept the secret since then, only telling his own family in the last "several months."

In a statement to the Albuquerque Journal, the 80-year-old Republican, who represented New Mexico for more than 30 years, said the mother of his son "made me pledge that we would never reveal that parenthood and I have tried to honor that pledge and so has she."

Domenici wrote that he was worried about the privacy of his son, a 34-year-old Nevada lawyer named Adam Laxalt, as well as the potential impact on Laxalt's mother, Michelle Laxalt, 58. Domenici has eight other children with his wife Nancy.

"My past action has caused hurt and disappointment to my wife, children, family, and others. For that I am solely responsible," Domenici, who still lives in Washington, D.C., said in the statement. "My family has been aware of these events for several months. I have apologized as best as I can to my wife, and we have worked together to strengthen our relationship. I deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. I hope New Mexicans will view that my accomplishments for my beloved state outweigh my personal transgression."

This is great. Nice to know we have quality role models in office.

Lemme guess, another conservative, family values, social scold Republican?

Honest about it? Yeah, thirty years later, hardly what I would describe as a noble stand for honesty and accountability.

Not that Dems are by any means innocent of such things, but at least they don't pontificate hippocritically one moment then go around and transgress every value they just blugeoned the other party over the head with.
