WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Despite a recent adultery scandal, Democratic U.S. Representative Tim Mahoney, is set to debate
Republican challenger Tom Rooney.
Friday at 3p.m. the two will go head to head, and as expected the scandal surrounding Mahoney will surely by a hot topic.
Mahoney has admitted to having at least two affairs, one with a
former staff member whom he paid to keep quiet about the tryst.
He is under investigation by the FBI and a House ethics panel, but
refuses to resign or get out of the race. His wife, Terry Mahoney,
filed for divorce Monday.
Voters chose the first-term Democrat on a family values platform
to replace Mark Foley, a Republican who resigned amid revelations
that he sent lurid Internet messages to teenage male pages who
worked on Capitol Hill.
