"May 23, 2008 -- THE ISSUE: How the media covered the Fossella scandal and news that he won't run for reelection.
'Do you mean to tell me that Mark Foley, David Vitter and Larry Craig shouldn't have gotten strict press scrutiny ("Vito Fossella and the Press," Peter King Post Opinion, May 21)?
They all violated a sacred trust.
Leading a duplicitous second life, Vito Fossella has embarrassed his poor wife and family.
Peter King, ever the lawyer, tries to mitigate the damage Fossella has done by blaming the press.
Maybe if his friend had acted like an honorable human being, King's article wouldn't have been necessary.
'Is King for real? Does he honestly expect the public to feel his pain because his good friend, Fossella, was not only busted with a DUI but also had a spare family stashed away in Virginia?
King whines about unfair media coverage, but he was quite vocal in expressing his displeasure when Eliot Spitzer and Bill Clinton's extra-marital shenanigans dominated the headlines for weeks on end.
If Fossella had been a Democrat, King would be demanding his head on a plate.
'The Post and the other newspapers are covering this story because it's news, and people are interested.
Build a bridge and get over it.
