Republicans trying to keep married Congressmen from sleeping around

Cheating politicians

An unsigned item in today’s New York Post hints that Republicans may be trying to keep a lid on some more sex scandals ahead of the midterms.

Minority Leader John "He Should Know" Boehner wants to make sure there are no Mark Foleys this time around… or anything improper at all. We’d celebrate this if it’s rooted in cynical electoral politics, designed to ensure Republicans retake one or both Houses.

GOP Rep. Lee Terry of Nebraska — who’s in a tough race against Democratic opponent Tom White — was witnessed by Page Six in close conversation with a comely lobbyist at the Capitol Hill Club in DC recently.

"Why did you get me so drunk?" Terry asked the giggling woman, among other personal remarks.

When Terry realized he was sitting near a reporter, he quickly changed the topic of conversation to his three children and the struggle to pay their college tuition.

Terry was given a 100 percent rating by the Christian Coalition for his pro-family voting record.

Meanwhile, a Kansas City blog posted photos of Missouri Rep. Sam Graves dining with a blond lobbyist from the Patriot Group at a DC restaurant.

And lobbyist Glenn LeMunyon‘s DC row house has been a hot spot for lobbyists who want to meet House members….

LeMunyon hung up on us but responded in an e-mail that his house was not being used inappropriately by anyone. Hunter’s office declined to comment. Shuster’s office said, "It is all false."

Page Six doesn’t really have much to go on for these insinuations, do they? But hey, we can always dream…
