Democratic Double Standard

Remember when the Democrats were incensed that a Florida Republican representative might have sent inappropriate emails to an intern?  The Republicans convinced the representative to resign almost immediately.

Well, the Democrat who replaced the Republican has his own little, sex scandal, only this time, the Democrats are doing everything they can to help this creep stay in office!  Talk about a double standard.  According to Democratic theology, if you do something wrong, and are conservative, get out of town!  If you do something wrong, and are Democratic, “how can we help you?”

Be sure to read the last part of this article to see what lengths the Democrats will go to elect a fellow Democrat!  How immoral is the Democratic party?

Congressman’s $121,000 Payoff to Alleged Mistress

Tim Mahoney Elected to Remove ‘Ethical Cloud’ of His Disgraced Predecessor, Mark Foley

West Palm Beach Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL), whose predecessor resigned in the wake of a sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him, according to current and former members of his staff who have been briefed on the settlement, which involved Mahoney and his campaign committee.

The affair between Congressman Tim Mahoney and Patricia Allen began, according to current and former staffers, in 2006 when Mahoney was campaigning for Congress against Foley, promising “a world that is safer, more moral.”

Mahoney, who is married, also promised the woman, Patricia Allen, a $50,000 a year job for two years at the agency that handles his campaign advertising, the staffers said.

A Mahoney spokesperson would not answer questions about the alleged affair or the settlement, but said Allen resigned of her own accord and “has not received any special payment from campaign funds.”

Senior Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives, including Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), the chair of the Democratic Caucus, have been working with Mahoney to keep the matter from hurting his re-election campaign, the Mahoney staffers said.
