Anti-gay adulterer/drunk driver Fossella won't seek re-election

Rep. Vito Fossella (R-NY-13), the disgraced drunk driving adulterer from Staten Island, announced today that he would not seek re-election to his House seat. In spite of pressure from Republican leadership in the House, Fossella will hang on to the seat through the end of his current term. He will still be holding office when voters go to the polls on Election Day.

Fossella chalked up quite an anti-gay record in his ten years on Capitol Hill. As noted in an earlier post, he voted repeatedly against basic fairness for gay Americans and their families. His homophobia was so deeply rooted that he reportedly even shunned his lesbian sister Victoria Fossella and her partner Maggie Scharsella.
