Pete Domenici, Republican Sex Machine

Posted on | February 20, 2013 | 9 Comments

You know how, whenever there’s a Democrat scandal, liberal blogs try to pretend like they don’t notice it? I hate that, and so I’m not going to pretend not to notice that former Sen. Pete Domenici, 80, fathered an illegitimate child in 1978 with the daughter of Domenici’s Republican colleague, Sen. Paul Laxalt:

She raised the son, Adam Paul Laxalt, as a single mother. According to past Virginia voter registration records, he was born in August 1978, 35 years ago. Michelle Laxalt would have been 24 at the time; Domenici would have been 46.

So, here you have a married Republican senator banging a chick barely half his age, a chick who just happens to be a fellow Senator’s daughter, and . . . Well, it was the ’70s, eh?

Back in 1978 — no, I’m not going to tell any of those stories. But I was a long-haired teenage rock-and-roller back then, not to mention a Democrat. How was I to know that Republican senators were partying down like the cast of Boogie Nights?

Also, I’ll point out that the Washington Post included Domenici’s party affiliation in the first sentence of the article, whereas by contrast when a Democrat congressman pleads guilty to federal felony charges . . . eh, not so much.

Finally, while it is embarrassing to admit that a married Republican senator fathered a baby with a chick half his age, at least he didn’t leave her to die in a submerged Oldsmobile.

    […] Senator Pete Domenici. Domenici, who retired in 2009, admitted to fathering an child in 1978. WaPo made sure they identified Domenici as a Republican in the very first sentence of their report. But no, we’re not supposed to think the media is […]

    Met him once and voted for him twice. It was disappointing to hear this today.

    She was still way older than the Dominican hookers Menendez has been banging … now what party does Menendez belong to, can’t recall, but at least he’s no longer in office. Oh wait …

    Having spent too many years amongst the damned, I will not know, I hope I have not ever, and I pledge to hope to not much in the future, be other than Buckley, who knew and should be replicated to whatever much much much more than decimated aproxy they be.

    As in Junior, to you.

    And I will take liberty with the meaning I determine to or for as it were “aproxy” as it were, were as it as to be such.

    Domenici’s sins are more akin to Steve Cohen’s than that corrupt douchenozzle Menendez.

    Laxalt? Pretty sure I banged all of them a couple of times each back at the Crazy Horse in Georgetown. Or something.

    You know, when this chick got pregnant, she didn’t have an abortion; she didn’t wreck his marriage and move in with him; she didn’t go on Oprah; she basically kept quiet and raised the kid, which is what the lot of mistresses is supposed to be.

    No, I’m not blaming the barely-legal woman and letting the powerful man off the hook; I am pointing out that once upon a time, society used to elevate marriage above mistresses. (Without ranting too much, I suspect that this business of treating girlfriends, fiancees, random women, and sometimes wives like mistresses, or worse than mistresses, may have been part of modern society’s elevation of homewreckers.)

    I don’t wish to condone hanky-panky, especially by supposed mentally and emotionally competent adults, but the real question here is what Domenici did after the fact. Did he give the child and its mother support–both monetary and personal? That’s what we need to know.

    As for the woman, I wish her well in every way, especially as she seems to have acted responsibly after the fact. But at a more realistic time the age of consent used to be fourteen, and twenty-four is well beyond that. I hope we can now leave her alone.

    This sort of thing, by the way, is part of why I believe the voting age should be raised to at least twenty-five. We could expect a better class of legislator.
