Former Congressman Vito Fossella checked into Virginia's Alexandria Detention Center to serve the first half of his four-day sentence for a May 2008 DUI. The Daily News has a photo of him being dropped off and opined that he "seemed dressed more appropriately for a weekend barbecue than a stay in the slammer," given his jeans and pink polo shirt. The Staten Island Advance reveals that he "likely will be kept alone in the small cell painted white with long slits for windows, a steel sink and toilet and a cement bunk for a bed," though "he may be given a roommate if the jail becomes crowded." Other former inmates who have been at the ADC: al Qaeda suspect Zacarias Moussaoui, "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh and spies Aldrich Ames and Robert Hanssen. Fossella will get out tomorrow at 6 p.m. and will need to spend another weekend there to complete the sentence. Some believe he may try to re-enter politics again, in spite of the DUI conviction and admission that he has a mistress and love child.
