It's just amazing what comes out of Kings mouth. In the Washington Post, King comes out swinging against the media for reporting the story "The media in New York has become Vito's enemy," he said, singling out the New York Daily News and the New York Post. He says while he acknowledges there are serious issues, they "don't warrant eleven days of front-page stories with color pictures of his kids and his wife."
Drunk driving, mistress, hidden child is not worth eleven days of stories? What is he kidding?
Fossella was a moralizing asshole, standing atop the "family values" soapbox attacking others lifestyles. Of course this is news.
And King's reasoning for Vito not resigning? "despite all that's swirling around him right now...Vito could win in November. He's extremely popular there. He has to decide what that could do to his family."
I guess King is missing the bigger story now where it looks like Vito and his goomah went on taxpayer paid trips together. "Democratic and GOP congressional officials are scrutinizing Rep. Vito Fossella's mysterious and pricey January 2003 trip to France, the Daily News has learned.
He was the sole lawmaker authorized to go - and his mistress is suspected of joining him. The Staten Island Republican visited La Hague, France, supposedly on a "fact-finding" mission."
When it all comes down to it, I think King doth protest too much.
If you know what I mean.
