The Rightblogs’ Slate: Tom Rooney

Folks, I’d like to take a moment to encourage you to chip in a few bucks to Tom Rooney.

Why Tom Rooney? He’s a conservative Army veteran who taught criminal and constitutional law at West Point and he’s trying to take back Mark Foley’s old seat.

Moreover, his opponent Tim Mahoney just made the news. It seems that Mark Foley’s Democratic replacement has gotten caught up in a sex scandal. Heh, heh, heh. That should go over really well in that district,

West Palm Beach Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL), whose predecessor resigned in the wake of a sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000 payment to a former mistress who worked on his staff and was threatening to sue him, according to current and former members of his staff who have been briefed on the settlement, which involved Mahoney and his campaign committee.

… The affair between Mahoney and Allen began, according to the current and former staffers, in 2006 when Mahoney was campaigning for Congress against Foley, promising “a world that is safer, more moral.”

At the time, Mahoney’s campaign ads featured a picture of him with his wife, Terry, with the line, “Restoring America’s Values Begins at Home.”

So, if you’re looking to really make a donation count, let me strongly suggest that you put some money towards Tom Rooney’s campaign. This is a guy who deserves your support.
