Another GOP Family Values Politician - Caught in a Sex Scandal

It has almost become a given if a politician runs on "Family Values", he or she will get caught in a sex scandal.  Well, more proof to that hypothesis comes in the form of Rep. Mark Souder (R-IN).  He has long run on that old platform, family values, and so I guess this should come as no surprise.

In a Fox News exclusive, Souder says he is leaving office to spend more time with his family.  Sound familliar?  Seems Souder was having an affair with a 45-year-old staff member.  That infraction would have ended up with him in front of an Ethics Panel and a messy press situation. 

Thanks to AmericaBlog for finding this nifty tidbit.
