It appears that temptation has brought down another family values crusader. I blame gay marriage!

Rep. Mark Souder (R-Ind.) will reportedly resign over an alleged affair with a staffer. Souder has long championed abstinence-only education, opposed gay marriage (because that would, you know, ruin the sanctity of hetero marriage), and has been one of the most vocal proponents of sending federal SWAT teams in to raid medical marijuana clinics in states that have legalized the drug for treatment. In fact, Souder once said merely discussing the idea of legalizing medical marijuana is akin to debating the legalization of rape.

Souder’s website sums his political phiolosophy as one that’s “committed to fighting the assault on American values.”

I wish my fellow Hoosiers had had the good sense to oust Souder on his record. But this will work.

Good riddance.

UPDATE:  Here’s a video produced by Souder’s office in which the congressman explains his passion for abstinence-only education. The woman interviewing him in the video . . . is his mistress.

You really can’t make this stuff up.
