Rep. Souder, Abstinence Advocate, Obviously Forgot

In his hasty farewell, Souder took the well-worn path of blaming his departure on Washington. “In the poisonous environment of Washington, D.C., any personal failing is seized upon, often twisted, for political gain,” he complained. “I am resigning rather than put my family through that painful, drawn-out process.”

“I sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff,” he announced in a resignation statement.

The McGlynn: Mutual relationship?!!!

Rep. Souder and Tracy Jackson, discussing abstinence

And it wasn’t just any part-time staffer, according to sources in Souder’s office. Five months ago, Tracy Jackson was his, er, “co-host” in a video the pair produced for his congressional Web site. The topic: abstinence education.

“You were one of the only voices in the room speaking in defense of abstinence education,” Jackson, posing as interviewer, tells her alleged paramour in the video. “You’ve been a longtime advocate for abstinence education.”
