  The Sherwood Payoff?
You know, with all the stuff going on today, I missed this one but it's worth mentioning.
A Republican congressman accused of abusing his ex-mistress agreed to pay her about $500,000 in a settlement last year that contained a powerful incentive for her to keep quiet until after Election Day, a person familiar with the terms of the deal told The Associated Press.

Rep. Don Sherwood is locked in a tight re-election race against a Democratic opponent who has seized on the four-term congressman's relationship with the woman. While Sherwood acknowledged the woman was his mistress, he denied abusing her and said that he had settled her $5.5 million lawsuit on confidential terms.

The settlement, reached in November 2005, called for Cynthia Ore to be paid in installments, according to a person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is confidential. She has received less than half the money so far, and will not get the rest until after the Nov. 7 election, the person said Thursday.

A confidentiality clause requires Ore to forfeit some of the money if she talks publicly about the case, according to this person and two other people familiar with elements of the case.

Wow. This is something. Pay off the mistress, problem goes away. I guess not in Sherwood's case. There's a breakdown of the controversy that goes back to 2004 here. To your right, Ms. Cynthia Ore. GOP's having a bad week.

Hey, yeah, more from the FORCIBLY MANDATE THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE PARTY! "We can screw around on our opposite-sex spouses with women AND men, snort meth off their butts and beat them, but the world will end if we let those heathen hell-bound sodomites get married and pay the marriage tax penalty like us real people!"

My Lord, my Lord. God must have to take 5 million Advil a day to get rid of His headaches.
 
I think we need at least 2 million of Advil today to deal with the fact that folks keep voting these people BACK into office.
