Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich:
When Mr. Gingrich was serving as Speaker of the
House of Representatives in 1998, he hounded President Bill Clinton
with a vengeance because of his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky.
But Gingrich was himself an adulterer. He had cheated on his
first wife in the early 1980s, and at the very moment he was
demanding Clintons impeachment, he was cheating on his
second wife. He has convinced the 'Christian' Right that God
has forgiven him and he remains one of their darlings.
Steve Wiles (Miss Mona Sinclair):
The North Carolina Republican State Senate candidate

hypocrites that don't make for good Christian role models.
Former Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister:
Mr. McAllister is quoted as saying his decision to run for congress,
was "a prayerful one. Many people make light of my spiritual
faith, but that is okay with me. I know the blessing that I have
received from the good Lord and the inner peace that comes from
being a believer. ... I knew there were a number of qualified
people in the district to be congressman, but also I realized
that I had the time and the financial capability ... that maybe
[the others] didn't."
On April 7, 2014, the Ouachita
Citizen newspaper of West Monroe, posted online a copy
of a surveillance video from an anonymous source which shows
McAllister kissing a woman in his Monroe district office. The
video was recorded in McAllister's Monroe congressional office
on December 23, 2013. The woman was subsequently identified as
a married, longtime employee of McAllister."

During his re-election campaign (yes, those fools re-elected
him in 2014), Dr. Desjarlais said

'news' blog, tells us that Tennessee has enacted a law which
requires a 48 hour waiting period for women contemplating sex

Uncle Fester also holds the distinction of being the first
relatively well known Republican from Tennessee to endorse Donald
of Orange for President.

Rep DesJarlais, Robert

him in 2014, was arrested in April for his alleged plan to commit
