Abstinence-only pusher Rep. Mark Souder caught in affair with staffer

This is just too perfect. After years of pushing abstinence-only education in the name of family values and the “sanctity” of marriage, Indiana congressman Mark Souder (R) has announced his resignation after an affair with his staffer, Tracy Jackson, has come to light.
What’s truly amazing about this is that Souder and Jackson actually recorded a video together on the values of abstinence-only programs. Via TPM:

Because sex outside of marriage is bad! So, so naughty…
Souder’s resignation is great news for sex advocates in Indiana, but what’s almost as ironic as the lovers’ video is that we have Fox News to thank for breaking the story. Who woulda thunk.
We’re in the process of looking for a transcript, stay tuned.
