Is disgraced former Rep. Vito Fossella thinking of running for his old seat?
The Staten Island Republican chose not to seek reelection in 2008 after a simple (but serious) DWI arrest revealed that Fossella had a second family, complete with love child, living in a Virginia suburb.
...In recent weeks Fossella has been weighing a run for the seat currently held by Democratic Rep. Mike McMahon, with the kickoff for ballot petitions fast approaching and the political climate unsettled nationwide.
A Staten Island Republican executive committee candidate screening that was set to take place this week was pushed back supposedly because it conflicted with a Tea Party screening, the sources said, but several Richmond County sources believe it was done to buy Fossella time to make a decision.
If he does decide to run, Fossella better hope that people stop making John Edwards jokes.
