After the Foley Resignation(Democratic American Values)

Jessica Santillo, spokeswoman for Foley's Democratic opponent Tim Mahoney, said Foley's resignation would not change her boss' strategy and Mahoney will not make Foley's problems an issue. She is quoted as saying, "Before, we were running a strong race, and we will continue to run a strong race. Mr. Mahoney, from the beginning, has run to restore American values to Washington."

I wonder…is Santillo referring to the values of Reagan and Bush, or of Clinton? Since Clinton was the last Democrat in the White House, I would assume she is referring to his values. Values like :

- The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance
- Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates*
- Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation
- Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify
- Most number of witnesses to die suddenly
- First president sued for sexual harassment.
- First president accused of rape.
- First first lady to come under criminal investigation
- Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- First president to establish a legal defense fund.
- First president to be held in contempt of court
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad
- First president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court*

Or maybe she is referring to the values of Congressmen like Ted (Chappaquiddick) Kennedy or Barney (it’s my apartment and I’ll pimp if I want to) Frank, or William (cold cash) Jefferson? While Republicans have condemned the actions of Foley and distanced themselves from him, the Democrats continue to embrace the Kennedys, Franks, and Jeffersons of their party.

Don’t think she and I see eye to eye on what “American values” means.
