Former Rep. Mark Souder has gone the confessional route, somewhat as Mark Sanford did, about his affair with an aide. Too much information, again.
"I prayed multiple times a day, sang hymns with emotion and tears, felt each time that it wouldn't happen again, read the Bible every morning. . . . So how in the world did I have a 'torrid' (which is an accurate word) many-year affair? How could I compartmentalize it so much?"
Say. Didn't Kenneth Starr used to talk about going down to the river to sing hymns regularly? Just saying.
