GOP Family Values: Pete “Stripper” Sessions Finally Starts Divorce Process

From the Forty Deuce website via AmericaBlog

Here’s a little news nugget timed for release during the Friday afternoon news eclipse:

U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions, a member of the House GOP leadership, has announced that he and his wife of 27 years are separating.

That’s right: Yet another “family values conservative” (where “family values” means sticking it to mothers and kids) is well on his way to getting a divorce. Quelle surprise. NOT.

It’s even less surprising if you remember this little part of Sessions’ past:

…it seems that at least two of Norm’s fellow Minnesota Republican officeholders, Michele Bachmann and Erik Paulsen, were among the beneficiaries of Texas Republican Pete Sessions’ Forty Deuce strip-club fundraiser for the PAC that gave them money. (Seems that Sessions is in tight with casino and strip-club operators.)

Sessions’ fundraising PAC is called the “People for Enterprise/Trade/Econ Growth“, and here’s the FEC data for Bachmann ($2500) and Paulsen ($5000). Wonder how many other “family values” types got Pete Sessions’ stripper money?

Okay, what’s the over-under on cute female blond twentysomething lobbyists and/or staffers showing up on Sessions’ arm in the next few weeks?
