    Domenici has been out of public life five years. The child has had a military career before going into law practice. Does it matter that he releases this NOW?

    Or should we all be disgusted by this kind of thing no matter how long after it has taken place before the need to make public confessions gets to these people?

    I am both annoyed by the facts, but the timing almost makes things like this makes this story a yawner. OK,......Have at.

    Looks like Pete was in his 50s and Michelle Laxalt in her early 20s. (If that.)

    Those GOP country club get-togethers must be awesome.

    “I deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior,” Domenici said.

    Shouldn't that quote just be memorized by every house member when they are sworn in? Its going to be needed at some point.

    Here's why they released it:

    Domenici and Michelle Laxalt said they were releasing the information now because they thought someone else would shop it around to media outlets to damage Domenici’s reputation.

    By the way, I also believe Steve Cohen that he didn't realize he had a daughter until a few years ago. I'm convinced, given what my birth mother has told me, that there is a paint company salesman south of Pittsburgh who has no idea he has a fourth, much older child.

    “Recently information has come to me that this sacred situation might be twisted, re-written out of whole cloth, and shopped to press outlets large and small in a vicious attempt to smear, hurt and diminish Pete Domenici, an honorable man, his extraordinary wife, Nancy, and other innocents.”

    Go fuck yourself, Michelle.

    A 'sacred situation' ?

    A horny-handed 50ish guy schtupping the cutie-bootie 20ish daughter of a professional colleague?

    I feel the need to sanctify myself. Praise da lawd.
