    Eight-term Rep. Mark Souder will announce his resignation Tuesday after it came to light that he was conducting an affair with a female staffer who worked in his district office, Fox News has learned. Multiple senior House sources indicated that the extent of the affair would have landed Souder before the House Ethics Committee. Elected as a family values conservative as part of the Republican revolution in 1994, Souder survived a tough re-election challenge in 2008 and survived a contested primary two weeks ago.

    Washington Post ^ | July 30, 2008 | U.S. Representative MARK SOUDER
    Considering the Supreme Court's broad decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, I'm surprised that The Post would continue to raise the tired old canard of home rule ["Trigger-Happy on the Hill," editorial, July 25]. Last month, the Supreme Court affirmed that Americans have an individual right under the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms. Just as with the First Amendment, it matters not a whit whether we reside in the state of Indiana or the District of Columbia. We are protected by the same Bill of Rights. Sadly, since the announcement of the Heller decision, we have seen...

    The Washington HHS-sponsored forum touts 'harm reduction'By Cheryl WetzsteinTHE WASHINGTON TIMESPublished August 16, 2005 The Department of Health and Human Services is one of the "primary sponsors" for an upcoming Salt Lake City conference on methamphetamines whose organizers back the "harm reduction" approach to drug policy, which Republicans see as form of legalization.     Rep. Mark Souder, Indiana Republican, said in an angry letter sent Friday to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Michael O. Leavitt that the conference's approach to end the nation's "war on drugs" in favor of programs that try to limit drugs' harmful effects undercuts...

    Posted on Thu, Apr. 14, 2005 Souder backs DeLay, concedes GOP fallout fears By Sylvia A. Smith Washington editor WASHINGTON – No one has proven that the No. 2 Republican in the House has done anything unethical or illegal, Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd, said Wednesday, but “there is widespread nervousness” among Republicans. “Part is political,” he said of the allegations against Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, that have dogged the House majority leader for a year. “But the truth is, we’re all reading this stuff and saying: ‘Why did you do that? Did you cross the line? Did your staff cross...

    Not even the foggiest-headed stoner would argue they want children to smoke pot. (Especially if it means children digging into one's stash.) The challenge is in dissuading kids from doing so without resorting to potentially counterproductive myths and hyperbole. Enter Ricardo Cortes. Last month, Cortes published his children's book, It’s Just a Plant, 48 cannabis-laden pages that he hoped would be taken as a welcome dose of "reality-based education." The former high school D.A.R.E. officer and Brooklyn-based T-shirt and skateboard designer says the book is intended for "six- to 12-year-olds." It still encourages kids to say "No," but stops short...

    One of the most thoughtful politicians in Washington doesn't believe in the theory of evolution. I thought I'd introduce him to you because over the next week we're going to hear a lot of stereotypes about Republicans and especially social conservatives. It might be useful to interrupt those prejudices with the more complicated reality. Representative Mark Souder grew up in a small town near Fort Wayne, Ind. His father owned a general store and then a furniture store and was the beneficiary of what Souder calls small-town socialism. People would pay more to buy from local merchants to keep out...

  • Freep this poll: "Whose image should be on the dime, Reagan or F.D.R.?

    Currently F.D.R. is beating Reagan 74% to 26% regarding's new poll: "Whose image should be on the dime?" F.D.R. is the anthithesis of all we stand for, and his New Deal has been a Raw Deal. Monticello's apparently going to be shed from the back of the nickel, and isn't it time that Mr. Tax-cuts Reagan replaced the Donkeys' favorite socialist president?
