Elsewhere: The water in Florida


Only two years removed from Mark Foley and his infamous erotic instant messages to teenage pages, Florida is making the wrong kind of political headlines again.

In a story that is sure to have enough legs to support a dining room table, ABC News has reported that Foley’s successor, the guy who was going to restore morality to the scandal-ridden Florida congressional seat, reportedly cut a check for $121,000 to settle a dispute with his ex-mistress and ex-staffer.

Talk about a wheelbarrow of hush money.

Since Foley was a Republican and Tim Mahoney is a Democrat, does that mean its the Republican party’s turn to have a pol get all self-righteous about restoring morality and fall flat on his or her less than two years later? What’s with the water there in Florida’s 16th congressional district anyway?
