Tainted District?

The Democratic Congressman who replaced disgraced representative Mark Foley, Tim Mahoney, agreed to pay a former mistress -- who was also a staff member -- $121,000 after she threatened to sue him, reports.

There is actually audio of Mahoney firing his mistress, including the money quote here:
The only person that matters is guess who? Me. You understand that. That is how life really is. That is how it works.
The district's next congressman will be Idaho Senator Larry Craig, who will reportedly move to the district to "be with my kind of people." (uh, joke there)
