Brooklyn's Newest Baby Daddy?
Of course, many Republicans would have you believe that baby daddies are creatures of the ghetto, that they are all young, dysfunctional and amoral Blacks and Latinos.
[For the unhip, a baby daddy is a man who has fathered a child out of wedlock.]
Well, The News suggests that the person Fossella was going to see the night he was busted for driving drunk was retired Air Force Lt. Col. Laura Fay, who has a three year old daughter.
The paper also raises the possibility that the child may be Fossella's. Fossella, who represents parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island, has three children with his wife, Mary Pat. (read the article.)
What makes this all so interesting, and especially painful for Fossella, is that he's up for reelection this year. Even before this mess he felt himself in enough trouble politically that, last month, he had Vice President Dick Cheney do a fundraiser for him.
If he was worried then, he must surely be in a panic now.
Maybe he and Elliot Spitzer are off somewhere in a secret 12-step program for wayward pols.
