This just in. According to the Washington Post, Senator Pete Domenci (R-New Mexico) fathered a child out of wedlock 35 years ago, and the world and his wife are just learning about it.
In typical cheater understatement Domenci said, “I have apologized as best as I can to my wife, and we have worked together to strengthen our relationship.”
Yeah, because nothing strengthens a relationship like 35 years of deceit. Poor woman. I hope she is strengthening her relationship with a very good divorce attorney about now.
Apparently Domenci is not strong in the eloquence or empathy departments. Equally lame is his regret for the existence of his grown son, who has to be thrilled to be publicly derided as a mistake.
“I deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. I hope New Mexicans will view that my accomplishments for my beloved state outweigh my personal transgression.”
Yes, the IMPORTANT thing here is Senator Domenci’s accomplishments, so let’s not tarnish his image with this…THIS. Note his regret is without description. His “transgression” is singular. A one-off.
And New Mexico? He really loves you. It was YOU he was thinking of all along. You’re “beloved” to him. That transgression? She means nothing!
Perhaps we should blame the 70s. Free love, I’m okay, you’re okay. Can you blame a horny married 46 year old senator for boffing a 24 year old hanger on? (Her father was also a senator at the time. Talk about daddy issues…)
You know this was the same Senator Domenci that tried to impeach Clinton. Ugh, the hypocrites. We need a conservative fucktard hall of fame. I would nominate Domenci, but folks, he’s really an amateur at this hide-the-love-child thing when compared with segregationist Strom Thurmond. He managed to hide his love child (with the family’s black maid! How Southern gothic!) for over 70 years.
You’re a fucktard, Domenci. But you only made it half way to fucktard exceptionalism.
