Those of you outside of New York probably aren’t following this story, but State Island Representative Vito Fossella grabbed headlines last week when he was arrested for drunk driving.
Well, as can expected, the Republican politico’s private life has been getting probed like you wouldn’t believe. One of the juicier details: the married father of two had an illicit affair – and bastard child – with another woman.
It’s good old-fashioned fun, of course, and Pride Agenda just made it even more of a knee-slapper by reminding us of Fossella’s predictable political history: “…We thought it would be useful to remind people that the Staten Island Representative had voted not once or twice–but three times to, as many of his colleagues argued, ‘preserve the sanctity of marriage.'”
Sanctity, indeed. Yet another Republican homophobe who has been busted for being a lying, cheating hypocrite. I’m sure his Republican constituents on Staten Island are shocked, SHOCKED that their golden boy is a sham. Gives me a warm feeling…
And he cried about it today. How come these supposedly macho str8 Rethugs are always crying their asses off? Hey, Vito. BOO-FUCKING-HOO! If you had been smart you would have just gotten a blowjob from a gay guy. We can’t get knocked up, and we don’t suck and tell if you treat us OK. Asshole.
Looser! Straight whore!

He’s got one of the lowest HRC ratings in Congress. The fact that he’s from NYC has been a citywide embarassment for 10 years. He’s well known as a bully and a user who feeds at the public trough.
Well, put a stick in him. He’s done.
His private life is no one’s business. We are not serving gay interests by stigmatizing people’s sexual behavior, not that between consenting adults.
DUI is another matter.
Also, he’s hot.

Puddy Katz: When someone makes a career over the “sanctity of marriage,” his having cheated on his wife and sired a love child most definitely IS his constituents’ business.
But you’re right: I could definitely hate-fuck him.

I think you’ll have to take sloppy seconds to his wife’s hate fucking him and there might not be much left when she’s through. Sorry.

For people who seem so concerned that the effect of her parents public divorce on the McGreevy daughter I find it very offensive that you have referred to Mr. Fosella’s out of wedlock child as a bastard.
In the strictest definition of the word it may be true but what effect do you think being called that in the media will have on this child. Shame on you for your misplaced snark.
I agree totally with Alan Down in Florida @8. Fossella’s child should not be stigmatized by being referred to as a bastard, nor should his other children. Only the right-wing politician should be stigmatized for his hypocrisy, and perhaps the wife if she takes a public position to stand-by-my man and support his politics.
And Hells Kitchen Guy (@4) is right: it is embarassing for New Yorkers that this guy is from our city. But what’s worse is that there is a large concentration of people who think like him on Staten Island, the most conservative section of the city and the district Fossella represents. Perhaps it is wishful thinking that his secret affair would have been with another man, because he could be added to the list of closet-case politicians representing SI. There have been several, all but one of whom is/was Republican (at least among those I know about).
DUI is very serious. I could care less about his personal life, the DUI alone speaks for itself and his judgement. I don’t agree with him, but he has done one thing right – resigning. Now if he would take Sens Craig and Vitter there could be some credibility restored in Washington.
This man’s personal life is our business because he has made our personal lives his business.
