More Conservative Backsliding: Tennessee Republican Caught in Intern Scandal

Oops! It's happened again—another anti-gay, pro-family conservative Republican has betrayed his own (supposed) values and admitted an affair with a 22-year-old intern.

This time the culprit is a state legislator in Tennessee. Naturally, he's married and a father and a phony, like so many of the social conservatives.

For those of you keeping score at home, there's a trend in this sort of GOP hypocrisy. Here are four of the most famous: Sen. John Ensign, Gov. Mark Sanford, and—let us not forget—Sen. David Vitter and Sen. Larry "Wide Stance" Craig.

The story, from Raw Story, is here.
