Waiting for the 10th Shoe to Drop

The New York Times has a quick round up of the what it calls a "scandal-scarred GOP." From the NYT:

Forget Mark Foley of Florida, who quit the House last year after exchanging sexually explicit e-mail messages with under-age male pages, or Jack Abramoff, the lobbyist whose dealings with the old Republican Congress landed him in prison. They are old news, replaced by a fresh crop of scandal-plagued Republicans, men like Senator David Vitter of Louisiana, whose phone number turned up on the list of the so-called D.C. Madam, or Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska and Representative Rick Renzi of Arizona, both caught up in F.B.I. corruption investigations.
It's been a long summer for Republican operatives charged with damage control. The NYT graphic (above) takes you to a quick rundown of just five scandals that have rocked the Republicans in the past few weeks. (NYT)
