#2 Nice combination. Stupid and a scumbag...

The affair between Mahoney and Allen began, according to the current and former staffers, in 2006 when Mahoney was campaigning for Congress against Foley, promising "a world that is safer, more moral."

Following his election in 2006, Allen was hired, at taxpayers expense, to work on Mahoney's Congressional staff in Florida, at a yearly salary of $36,000. After complaints about the affair circulated in Washington, Allen was moved to the campaign staff, the staffers say.

Friends of Allen told ABC News that Allen sought to break off the affair when she learned Mahoney was allegedly involved in other extra-marital relationships at the same time. Her friends say she told them Mahoney threatened that ending the relationship could cost her the job.

"You work at my pleasure," Congressman Mahoney told Allen on a January 20, 2008 telephone call that was recorded and played for Mahoney staffers. "If you do the job that I think you should do, you get to keep your job. Whenever I don't feel like you're doing your job, then you lose your job," Mahoney can be heard telling Allen. "And guess what? The only person that matters is guess who? Me. You understand that. That is how life really is. That is how it works," Mahoney says on the call. "You're fired," Mahoney tells her. "Do you hear me? Don't tell me whether it's correct or not."

Allen says, "Tell me why else I'm fired."

"There is no why else," Mahoney responds.

Later, Allen says, "You're firing me for other reasons. You don't, you're not man enough to say it. So why don't you say it."

The portion of the tape provided to ABC News cuts off when the two begin a profanity-laced argument.

#3 From this we infer that only the hint of gay sex involving a Republican is enough for the media and the Democrats to call for his resignation but a full-out hetero relationship involving a Democrat AND the payment of hush money barely warrants a peep from the media.

Oh...and there was a gay sex scandal connected with the sub-prime mess and collapse of the financial sector (Barney Frank and Herb Moses of Fannie Mae) but no one in the media has any interest.

#4 "You work at my pleasure," Congressman Mahoney told Allen . . .

Now there's a line with double meanings if ever there was!
