New Allegations in Mahoney Sex Scandal

As I predicted, we can’t count on the Democrat to the right thing and set down. I guess it’s up to his constituents to let him know what they think. Unless I miss the mark, I suspect they will make him step down on election day.

Current and former members of the staff of Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-Fla) say he has yet to come completely clean about his multiple affairs, abusive behavior and alleged ethical lapses.

Last week, following a series of reports on The Blotter, Mahoney confirmed that he had hired one of his mistresses for his Congressional staff and that he was also carrying on an affair with a Florida county official who sought his help with a federal grant.

But a document obtained by ABC News reveals new allegations of threatening behavior and sexual harassment toward a female staffer, that go far beyond Mahoney’s public confession, including claims that he urged one of his mistresses to serve as a “tease” for big donors.

The former Congressional staff member, Patricia Allen, was paid $121,000 by Mahoney after she was fired and threatened to sue.

Meanwhile this week Mahoney resumed campaigning, meeting with newspaper editors in Florida to ask their “forgiveness”, saying despite his personal problems he’s been a good congressman for Monroe County. Mahoney is scheduled to debate his Republican opponent Friday afternoon at the Forum Club in West Palm Beach.
