N.Y. Representative Arrested Last Week in Possible DWI Admits to Out-of-Wedlock Child

A congressman from New York has admitted to fathering a child in an extramarital affair three years ago.

Under mounting scrutiny, Staten Island Rep. Vito Fossella, who has three children with his wife, released a statement this morning naming the child's mother and confirming the existence of their 3-year-old daughter.

"I have had a relationship with Laura Fay, with whom I have a 3-year-old daughter," Fossella, 43, he said in the statement.

Fossella, a conservative Republican, acknowledged that "imperfections" in his personal life have "caused pain to the people I love." He declined to address his political future -- a decision he said was "furthest" from his mind.

"Over the coming weeks and months, I will to continue to do my job and I will work hard to heal the deep wounds I have caused," he said in the statement.

I'm wondering if she knew already, though. The little girl is 3. That's pre-K age.

This is terrible. I know Fossella and his wife and children. His oldest son is in the same class as my brother. They used to be friends, don't hang out much anymore but play on the same rec baseball team. This is really shocking to say the least, Vito has always been an incredibly pleasant and nice person to be around. He always attends his son's activities.

This has been in the local papers for over a week now in Staten Island, and my brother and Vito's son received Confirmation yesterday. There were people there taking pictures and stuff during the ceremony who needed to be kicked out. So unfortunate.

Also, that is a terrible picture of his wife. I know shes embarrassed and all but she is certainly much better looking than that in person. ;)

That doesn't mean that she knew anything. One of my neighbors is married with kids of her own and her father's wife doesn't know about her.

She probably didn't. At least not about the kid. Having been a wife myself. :rolleyes: But, if it were me and I did know, I still woundn't have gone to be by his side. Fuck him.

His name is Vito. I wouldn't mess with him.

Seriously, do you think the NY Post didn't know about this long ago?
The DUI is what got him in trouble, after that it was anything goes.



It's NY, how many GOP officeholders are there really? Bloomberg doesn't
count, he was a lifelong Democrat until he ran for Mayor. He's run the office
as a Democrat.


Really, I don't mind if he loses his seat.

I do find it funny if you're a Democrat morals and affairs don't matter at all,
since, hey,you're a Democrat - Mayor of LA, Mayor of SF, President Clinton, Kennedy
(insert any of them at this point).... But, if you're a Republican, liberal or
conservative, you're instantly supposedly done.

If this guy is as big a jerk as this to his wife, good riddance if he's done w/the office.
Loser.

Ditto to his girlfriend.

The ring, doesn't it mean anything to you lady?

I always feel sorry for the families but you have to blame Fossella not the people taking pictures. Power and these men's penis seem to be a tragic combination.

Vito was a Democrat until he ran for office. He comes from a family of Democrats. He has a history of voting pretty middle of the line as well.

Difference is the Dems. don't claim to be the party of moral values accusing and judging anyone that doesn't believe in what they believe in.

Calvin, I feel sorry for the family having to go through this, but you can't blame the media. He's the one to blame for bringing this shame and disgrace on his family. What kind of role model does he present to his son and his daughter. That's heartbreaking for a kid, let alone a faithful and devoted wife. Is that the thanks you get? :( He knew he was a public figure and what something like this would do to him and his family if it came out, and doesn't it always come out? :shrug:

The ring, doesn't it mean anything to you lady?Please don't try to spin this. You Bush Republicans have based your whole platform on "family values" as you've galvanized all those religious kooks into voting for you. That's why it's always so ironic when one of you gets caught fucking a page boy, sucking dick in an airport restroom, or screwing around with another woman.

I really wasn't blaming the media. I am definitely in complete agreement with you. I guess it came off wrong. Was just saying how unfortunate this all is to his family and the ones around him. :)
