Another Republican lets it all hang out
Former Republican Representative from Pennsylvania Joseph McDade has been charged with flashing at least two women. Or as the indictment says,
On or about January 18, 2007 in Lee County, Florida, did unlawfully expose or exhibit his sexual organs in a public place or on the private premises of another, or so near thereto as to be seen from such private premises, in a vulgar or indecent manner, or did go naked in public...
Such a shame! Congressman McDade retired in 1998 after successfully beating charges of accepting defense industry bribes similar to the charges that put Rep. "Duke" Cunningham in the slammer.
McDade is living proof that if you're venal enough there's no end to the honors that Republicans will heap upon you.
The Joseph M. McDade Recreational Trail in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is halfway complete but is running up against environmental concerns. Quibbles aside, it could provide an ideal venue for recreational flashing.
Then there's the Congressman Joseph N. McDade Expressway, which may have to be renamed the Road to Perdition.
