Well, well. Looks like one of our least-liked Democrats is being investigated by the FBI for steering FEMA money to a second mistress in ecxhange for sex, in addition to the questions about the $121,000 he paid in hush money to the first one.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy...links to story and original diary by brownsox below the fold.
First the background, but a quick summary is this guy's a Blue Dog who woudn't endorse Obama, won election in Larry Craig's former district on a platform of bringing morality back to Congress, then proceeded to cheat on his wife with two women (that we know of).
Enter the FBI from the nytimes:
The FBI is looking into whether Mahoney hired the first mistress -- and put her on the federal payroll -- so she wouldn't reveal their affair, the person said. The woman, Patricia Allen, has not returned repeated calls.
Whoops! But wait, it gets even better.
The FBI is also looking into whether Mahoney helped Martin County secure a $3.4 million reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for hurricane damage in exchange for sex with a county official in 2007, the federal law enforcement official said.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not relishing the thought of losing a seat, but this is the perfect example of how we need to be supporting better Democrats, not hypocrits that give the Republicans ammunition against us.
