Former Congressman Vito Fossella may have had a DWI, which led to the revelation that the woman who picked him up from the Alexandria, Virginia police station was actually the mother of his love child—but that doesn't mean he can't run for his old seat again! According to Politico, he is "seriously considering entering the race for his old seat" representing Staten Island (and a little bit of Brooklyn).
Currently, Rep. Michael McMahon, a Democrat, is in power, but he may face some vulnerability since unions are angry that he voted against the health care bill. Politico reports, "A Staten Island Republican executive committee candidate screening that was set to take place this week was pushed back supposedly because it conflicted with a Tea Party screening, the sources said, but several Richmond County sources believe it was done to buy Fossella time to make a decision."
Fossella was at the SI GOP's Lincoln Day Dinner last week when a comic made a joke about John Edwards' love child. The source told the Post that Fossella "looked uncomfortable" and his "face was red." But he did get an ovation!
