Michael O’Brien speculates that we may have not seen the last of retiring Republican Rep. Vito Fossella who was recently sentanced to jail for five days for a DWI. Fossella is holding a thank you gathering for his supporters this weekend and O’Brien speculates this may be a testing of the waters to see if he would have the backing to compete in an attempt to win back his seat from Democrat Representative-Elect Michael McMahon (New York-13) in 2010. Along with the DWI Fossella has admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock.
My two cents: If Republicans are going to earn back Americans’ trust we can’t do it with men like Fossella. I think he should stay retired.
