Former New Mexico Sen. Pete Domenici told the Journal on Tuesday he fathered a son outside of his marriage over 30 years ago, revealing a secret kept for decades. (snip)
She [the mother] is a daughter of former U.S. senator and Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt....

I still like Pete Demenici. I was involved in NM GOP Politics during some of his term. He did good work.
I am sorry for his wife. I am sorry for his son. I am sorry for the family.
Another compromised winner from our side. Wake me when the house cleaning begins.
If he were a Democrat this wouldn’t be a big deal. Clinton would be high-fiving him.....
the libtards’ hateful comments are hard to read. How can people be so stupid
Why is this news?
I guess because it shows the games powerful men play with young women never change; somehow the country goes on . The one that really floored me was Henry Hyde. After that, the Vitters, Ensigns, etc. that keep rolling through just seem like part of the Washington wallpaper.
I am sorry that Domenici is such a freaking D%head and should be ostracized for life.
Living a lie as a US Senator sets you right up for blackmail....Gee ... do ya think that’s why Barky “retired” him?
Get a Grip!
good grief...what is it with politicians???
Sorry for the son.
The Domenici’s are a great family. Pete is a good man who, like us all, has his failings and times where he does not live up to his best expectations. Not that it makes for an excuse, but I do know that at the time Pete and Nancy were going through some very hard times due to the health problems of one of their children.
I’ll pray for the family, and I will continue to admire them.
He was a horrible example of a human being. My happiest day was his departure. What a liar.
A sleazy profession attracts sleazy people.

Well, Well, Well
Where are you from? Don’t expect you to be here long.
I knew Pete Domenici and he was not as you describe.
I was at one time GOP County Chairman in a county in NM. Lived there for 14 years. I knew many of the public officials.
I make no excuses for his actions that are revealed, but I do know things he did accomplish that were very good for the nation.
I like to see who we are talking about.
when one sees irresponsible conduct from Republicans, especially those who bend over for OBAMA, sell out morality,always look like their just coming home from a vacation, have superlib wives that the media doesnt report on, one can see how democrats and their “outing” experts exercise power over the republicans...the reps had the chance to defund obama/central planned healthcare but punked out...one wonders why ?
Texas fossil or New Mexican. He was horrible and became a RINO before our eyes. But worst of all — he was an unfaithful lying hypocrite. Thanks for your kind remarks. You do have a good Governor now over there.
I’m sure Paul Laxalt would have strangled him with his bare hands if he were alive today. What about the father of Monica Lewinsky? He blamed Ken Starr. I’m sure the offspring fella is well adjusted. That doesn’t make it ok.
I read through some of them and it is beyond stupid. “he’s a hypocrite.” Well, yeah, he is. So are they - they’ve never failed to live up to their own standards? And one of the reasons some of them say are because he voted for Clinton to be removed from office in the impeachment trial. Clinton was not on trial for infidelity, first of all, and second of all, even if Domenici had done the same things Clinton did that has no bearing on Clinton’s innocence or guilt. Their comments are absurd...but that is what being a liberal pretty much requires - checking reality at the door.
Perhaps strangest is this line from the article:
Recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be twisted ....”.
“Sacred” does not seem to be the right word.
I agree about Rick.
Grew up 14 miles from him. Know both of his parents.
His family beat mine here by 3 years. My ancestors came to this county in 1889.
Well anyway...while so many are bashing the Senator there is a real human being involved in this - and based on this bio looks like he turned out okay and is a stand up guy - decorated Navy Veteran.
I hear ya, but let’s face it, there is a whole lot we don’t know, especially, what were Michelle’s wishes in the matter.
Don’t you think that schizophrenia should be covered as an illness like any other? I witnessed the daughter’s abrupt change - it was tragic. It was an illness no different than cancer or heart failure.
They talk the talk.
Everything is “God, Family, Country”.
“Honor above all”.
There is more honor in a whore house than in the White House or the Halls of Congress.
I think this is very common in DC circles.
Power goes to your head-big and small head, that is.
But who is to say if Domenici was compromised for a long time by insiders pulling strings and threatening exposure.
The GOP always acts like someone has the goods on them.
Makes one wonder what other pols have closeted skeletons.
The best parody of this I have seen elsewhere with just a simple edit:
“Former New Mexico Sen. Pete Domenici told the Journal on Tuesday he fathered a son outside of his marriage over 30 years ago with former U.S. senator and Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt.”
If you like big government and Obamacare.
Ouch that one hurt.
Yes, but why didn’t he wear a rubber? Oh, wait, that is probably against his religion. Oh, wait, so was the sex.
At least his illegitimate child is alive and was not aborted.
That it was an all around an ill-conceived act is not in dispute.
I actually can't believe this secret was kept for 30 years.
Diogenes is still searching...and probably will be doing so for a long time.
Another idiot that can be blackmailed. Get rid of him.
