The Florida congressman who campaigned on a motto of “Restoring America's Values Begins at Home” and “a world that is safer, more moral” is accused of having an affair and paying off his former mistress.
Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-FL, has called for an ethics investigation of himself amid reports that he had an affair and then paid the woman to keep quiet. Minutes later Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also called for an investigation.
Mahoney has agreed to pay his former mistress $121,000 to prevent a lawsuit, according to an ABC Television report. Mahoney, who serves West Palm Beach and parts of Charlotte County, took office when his predecessor Mark Foley resigned after being exposed in a sex scandal.
