Question of the Day
“This is a test of the Democrat Faux Outrage System. Had this been an actual outrage, then someone of consequence would be making these claims,” observes a parody headline at Fark.com, an online news aggregator.
RETURN TO SENDER
Former Republican congressman Christopher Lee of New York is refunding $734,000 in leftover campaign money to 1,100 donors, following his resignation last month after his flirtatious come-ons and a pin-up photograph on Craiglist were revealed by a potential date.
“I regret very much how my actions affected my family, staff and constituents. I make no excuses for my behavior. It was wrong,” the married Mr. Lee said in a letter to donors. “Now, as a private citizen, my first priority is to try and pull back together a life for my family. God willing, with the continued support of family and friends, it will happen.”
