How many texts are we talking about? A hundred, a dozen or handful of exchanges.

If that is the worse text he did? He should just apologize or something. Maybe have an ethics ruling against him or something.

Why does the Secret Service get involved in things like this.

If I write "so and so gives good BJ's in the bathroom stall", how is that any different? Would the Secret Service investigate that or a Secret Valentine's note left on a desk?

At least it was a woman of legal age. Woot for Democrats.

FTFA: After a subpoena, the Secret Service was able to trace the texts back to Steinberg, who copped to it on Wednesday: "I acknowledge and take full responsibility for sending inappropriate and unsolicited messages to Mrs. Marlene Fernandez-Karvetsos, whom I have known for more than 15 years," he said. "I deeply regret and wholeheartedly apologize for the disrespect that I have shown her, her husband and my constituents."

LOL.

A Florida state Rep. has resigned after admitting to sexting a female"

That's how you know he was a (D).

Is it a law that all political headshots need to just ooze douchebag?
 
2012-02-27 12:08:59 PM  
I knew it was a Democrat because he actually resigned.

At any rate, good riddance.
 
2012-02-27 12:10:11 PM  
That guy was freakin ugly, if he was better looking he probably wouldn't have had to resign because you'd never of heard about it because him and the prosecutor would be getting it on.

culebra: I knew it was a Democrat because he actually resigned.

Indeed, on both counts. The man understood he screwed up, and took a graceful exit. There's too much of that kind of stupidity in politics right now, and no need to tolerate it from a Democrat.

IIRC he was big into promoting anti-stalker legislation... then started sending texts to a chick from a spoofed phone number

She should have invited Chris Hansen to take part in a hilarious sting. If the guy's stupid enough to open with "HEY SEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXY MOMMA", he's stupid enough to show up at her house wearing nothing but a bowler and a bow tie.

Yeah. Why would the Secret Service possibly care about a federal prosecutor being stalked?!?

Anyone notice how the headline "forgets" to include the "D?" This is the lame stream liberal media at it finest.

Before I clicked I said to myself "It must be a Democrat because Republican don't ever have to resign from these things".

Yeah, it was hell reading the article to discover it in the second sentence. The original article included it in the lede, but not the headline, as well - must be a conspiracy.

Sorta like the headline two below this one. Why aren't you biatching about that?
Oh, I guess you get to cherry pick stories for your outrage based upon political party.
Got it.

I assume you're laughing either because the author doesn't know what irony is, or because you didn't actually read the text messages.

Didn't know you could send texts from a Yahoo account. Stupid me.

Pretty creepy stuff. Oozes with icky. Even the apology where he uses her full name seems stalky. Yuck.

Being a Democrat, however, it must immediately be pointed out that he's not as bad as fill-in-the-blank Republican, who prefers young boys and assorted animals.

Sleazeball.

THIS.

Preemptive for the Trolls: Us FarkLibs do not apply a double standard. We may think the Dems get caught or do this crap less often, but nonetheless, when they get caught, they should piss off from office.

But your guys? "I will ask forgiveness from my family, my constituents and My God (and continue to screw all of them over while I stay in office)."

Geeze. You people will soon be erecting a statue to the guy.

Why can't creeps be creeps without the need to proactively rationalize their behavior with irrelevant comparisons? He didn't exterminate 6 million Jews, either, ya know. That guy never apologized or resigned either.

How is not resigning irrelevant? COULD IT BE???? A neocon blowhard thinks that there SHOULD be a double standard because the democrats aren't the party of family values and therefore not hypocritical by remaining in office?
