I love this part: Domenici had agreed to keep his fatherhood secret because of their connections to the Senate. Because Family Values, and all. FSM forbid the GOTea would actually admit that two adults would get together and have an “accident”. And of course she couldn’t admit anything substantial, because that would make her a slut and place her among those Other people for having a baby while not married to the father; and of course he couldn’t admit anything because Marriage Is Sacred, or something.

This is good too: 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. It only matters when it’s about to be made public some other way.

And there’s this: Michelle Laxalt has been recognized as one of the most powerful lobbyists in Washington, and has appeared as a cable news pundit. I suppose nothing confers influence like having a Family Values Senator’s bastard to raise. “Unless my client gets [insert concession to be added to pending legislation here], I’m going to the Washington Post with the full scoop.”

On the plus side, at least he wasn’t (so far as we know) keeping a rentboy while he was voting against all those LGBT bills.
