I'm trying to remember all the Republican sex scandals of 2009. Any missing?

Mike Duvall, Republican politician who resigned after his sex comments were broadcast. In the video, the married family-values crusader talks in graphic detail about women he slept with -- at least one of whom appeared to be a lobbyist with business before the utilities committee on which Duvall sat as vice chairman.

Paul Stanley, Republican former member of the Tennessee Sen., resigned from the state Senate effective Aug. 10, after his affair with a 22-year-old intern and a subsequent extortion attempt was revealed to the public. 

Mark Sanford, governor of South Carolina, disappears during Father's Day weekend, returning to confess an extramarital affair in Argentina.

John Ensign, Senator from Nevada, refuses to resign after confessing to an extramarital affair with a married staffer, claiming she was trying to extort him. Later, it was learned he was attempting to pay her and her husband off through his parents and finding them jobs.

Alan David Berlin, an aide for Senator Jane Orie of Pennsylvania. He is also a furry who contacted a fifteen year old boy over the internet, and offered to "yiff" the boy in a panda outfit, while his parents weren't home. The parents discovered the graphic emails on the boy's computer and called the attorney general's child predator unit sometime in May. Police raided his home and discovered various furry outfits such as a wolf costume, as well as a cat outfit; all complete with two holes cut out at the undersides of the costumes. He is now arraigned in Dauphin County jail on a $250,000 bail.

Bruce Barclay, former Cumberland County commissioner, videotaped hundreds of sexual encounters — many with male escorts — using cameras hidden throughout his Monroe Township home.

Matthew Joseph Elliott, former aide to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was convicted of sexual exploitation of a child.

Vito Fossella, the only Republican member of Congress from New York City, admitted to police to having a child out-of-wedlock when stopped for drunk driving.

Robert McKee, Republican delegate from Western Maryland, announced his resignation after authorities seized two computers, videotapes and printed materials from his Hagerstown home in a child pornography investigation. McKee also resigned his position as executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County.


The point of my question is to try to put into perspective the moral authority of a party who claims to represent family and Christian values.

    I know you would not understand the phrase of "those living in glass houses" but maybe you should look at all politicians who have been involved in scandals such as the beloved lefts Edwards. But you know it is much easier to cast stones when you do not look at your own house first. But then again I understand that the left feels nothing is actually wrong with these types of behaviors.

    So, your point is? Let's face it, sex scandals run in cycles. The only way that you or should I say we can attempt to prevent these scandals is to use our vote wisely when it comes to whom we are going to allow to represent us and whom we're going to allow to run "OUR" government for us, there's still a lot of good honest folks out there, its up to use to find them.

    I have no idea because by now, this sort of news is boring and even expected. I'm sure it is just as hard for their sex partners to remember as well.
