Taxpayers will pick up the tab for a special election in the 26th district of New York following Congressman Chris Lee's rapid fall. So what's the tab?
About a million dollars. That's my rough estimate, give or take about a quarter million, based on a number of special elections and estimated costs in other districts.

I've never understood why these politicians resign when they get publicly embarrassed. Like the rest of us, they should take their lumps and continue on. If their peers censure or eject them from office - or if the voters recall them, so be it. But I've always felt it a cowardly act to resign just because one's image is tarnished.

Was that all he did, flex in front of a mirror, take a pic and post it online? Did he harass anyone with this picture or was it just added to his profile or something? What is wrong with that? Does it go against the christian values that semi-nudity is wrong and animal like? I don't understand. Is it just a media frenzy trying to out scoop the next guy?
