Democrats full of compassion in FL

Democrat Congressman Tim Mahoney (FL 16) is in a bit of a dustup over payments to his former mistress. ABC News has a recording of the phone call when Mahoney fired his mistress. I thought Democrats were full of compassion and looked out for the little people. This guy is downright mean.

Chris Cillizza has the political implications for the seat held for former Congressman Mark Foley, who resigned shortly before the 2006 election. Looks like the campaign of Republican Tom Rooney just got a boost.


  1. I wouldn’t call Tim Mahoney a Democrat, but then again I wouldn’t call him anything other than an SOB

    This is interesting, in a prurient kind of way. But, what does it have to do with our local political issues just a few weeks before the election? The guy’s clearly a bum – often what we get when we elect the egos that run for office. Thankfully, he’s not Arizona’s bum.

    You really shouldn’t open this can of smelly stuff – because your guys always smell worse than their guys.

    Arrested in motel sting.

    ALBANY – A former assemblyman and current parole-board member was busted last night on child-pornography and soliciting charges, officials said.

    Chris Ortloff, 61, was arrested in a Plattsburgh-area motel room in a State Police sting at about 5 p.m.

    Ortloff, who allegedly had arranged a date on the Internet with an underage victim he thought would provide sex, had child porn and what was described as “sex paraphernalia” in his possession, according to the officials.

    They said Ortloff, a Republican who represented Plattsburgh, would likely face felony sex charges under state law, and could also be charged with violating federal anti-child pornography statutes.

    Ortloff, married with two sons, could not be reached for comment.

    “He was always the tough-on-crime guy in the Assembly who wanted to increase the criminal penalties for all kinds of sex crimes,” said a former associate.

    Ortloff, once the Assembly’s assistant minority leader and ex-chairman of the Clinton County GOP, was named to the board by then-Gov. George Pataki in 2006. His term runs through 2012.

    He’s one of 19 part-time, $102,000-a-year board members.

    You’re high. Rep. Studds was a Dim Congressmen that was caught sleeping with underage MALE pages. Instead of going to jail for life, his moronic constituents re-elected him to office MANY times.

    The point? Dims TOLERATE their deviants and re-elect them to office. Jefferson, Franks, Studds, etc. Republicans demand their resignation and do not re-elect candidates who engage in bad behavior.

    No, Sam, sorry, hombre, the Dims are WAY worse at scandals than the Rs ever are, but I do admit, Rs wind up in scandals about as often as the Dims.
