Took them only three words to get to Republican.
If he was a d’RAT it might not get mentioned at all.
Rep. Vito Fossella (R-N.Y.) said Thursday that he had an extramarital affair that has resulted in a three-year-old daughter in a statement released through a public relations firm.
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), who said he was one of Fossellas closest friends in Congress, said the political future of his New York colleague can be dealt with in due time.
Republican Conference Chairman Rep. Adam Putnam (R-Fla.) was more outspoken regarding Fossellas political future. If his district is anything like mine, I suspect that its over, he stated. Putnam added that he was not in a position to comment on whether the GOP would be best served if Fossella were to step down so a replacement candidate could be found to run in the strongly Republican district.
Im sure that the [National Republican Congressional] Committee is looking at all of their options and trying to find out what Mr. Fossellas options are and what the best options are for holding onto that seat, Putnam said.
