The party of "Family Values" strikes again

This is one I would probably leave alone. The black evening gown and fishnet stockings were simply a fashion statement. There being no history of attempting to deny rights to others, a guy can dress any way he wants. Hell, I'm betting he was more tastefully attired than some of the businessmen I passed this morning.

Just because a Bush appointed federal judge exercises poor judgment and gets behind the wheel... pissed...

OK. That's a reason to criticize. Still, he had the good sense to resign after pleading guilty.

However, this next one is a little different. Robert McKee, a Republican delegate to the Maryland state legislature and child protection crusader has found himself forced to resign.
Robert A. McKee, a long-serving Republican delegate from Western Maryland, announced his resignation yesterday after authorities, who say they are conducting a child pornography investigation, seized two computers, videotapes and printed materials from his Hagerstown home.

First elected to the House of Delegates in 1994, McKee was chairman of the Western Maryland delegation and sponsored legislation to protect minors from sexual predators. McKee, 58, also resigned yesterday from his post as executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washington County, a child mentorship program where he has worked for 29 years.

"For me, this is deeply embarrassing," McKee said in a statement. "It reflects poorly on my service to the community."

Gee. Ya think?!
