Many Brooklynites, when they hear Congressman Vito Fossella's declaration that he made an "error in judgment," will be overcome with satisfaction, in the belief that that a member of the family had finally come to his moral senses.
But it turns out that Fossella [photo] is not referring to his recent reliance on friend Dick Cheney (architect of the Iraq fiasco) for financial help, as Fossella tried to hold onto his Congressional seat.
(Recall that Cheney did a fund raiser last month for Fossella.) [see Times article.]
Rather, the Representative is talking about something that is, let's say, more personal.
It turns out the error in judgment was his arrest yesterday on drunk driving charges in Virginia.
