Indiana Rep. Mark Souder to Resign Amid Allegations of Affair With Staffer
FOX News

Eight-term Indiana Rep. Mark Souder was announcing his resignation Tuesday after admitting to an affair with a female aide who worked in his district office.

Souder, a Republican, will will step down on Friday. He said in remarks obtained by Fox News that he "sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff."

"I wish I could have been a better example," he was to say. "In this poisonous environment of Washington, D.C., any personal failing is seized upon, often twisted, for political gain. I am resigning rather than to put my family through that painful, drawn-out process. ... We are a committed family but the error is mine and I should bear the responsibility. Not only am I thankful for a loving family but for a loving God."

Multiple senior House sources indicated that the extent of Souder's affair with the staffer would have landed him before the House Ethics Committee. Sources told Fox News that the aide, identified as Tracy Jackson, a woman in her mid-40s, would accompany the congressman to events and to record ads at a Christian radio broadcast station.

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.

Typical, unfortunately ... no real news here. I just assume half the politicians lie about stuff like that since so many seem to do it. Many of them have trumped up war records and got easy rides due to Daddy, etc.

Exactly ... this story needs a little more spice. For example, we could use some good ol Republican "caught with gay escort" hypocrisy to make this interesting. There are many ideas to help this story.

It is unbelieveable how many of these guys just can't seem to keep it in their pants. I agree Frank, it seems like 85% are cheaters and 15% are liers.

Just one more insipid reason to legalize prostitution and pornography.
And otherwise, who cares?

The worst ones lie about their principles and beliefs but then vote differently or run their lives differently.
