Republican: If one family is good, two must be better

Republican family values Representative Vito Fossella loves families so much he has a second one that he keeps hidden.

Fossella was arrested for drunk driving after breaking tables in a D.C. bar. He called his mistress to help bail him out. The mistress is also the mother of his three year old daughter. Fossella’s wife didn’t know about the affair and the child and she wasn’t very pleased when she refused to be near him during a press conference.

As if that weren’t enough, he was picked up May 1 for drunken driving:

GOP Rep. Vito Fossella’s blood alcohol level was .17, nearly twice the state legal limit, when he was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Alexandria, Va., in the early hours of Thursday, according to documents filed today in Alexandria General District Court.

He called his mistress, rather than his wife, when he was arrested.
