Considering how common sex scandals are in politics, that was rather short-sighted of them.
The DC Madam the government stepped on recently has started a payback of her own. She's published telephone logs on the internet. A nice family values Republican Senator has been caught. What a surprise.
And the Senator has something else to look forward to.
Perhaps that's why the Senator has gone missing and there's a "For Rent" sign on his Washington apartment.
His compatriots are a little more understanding.
