The Democrats may have found the way to win back the Senate from those whose campaign for "family values" has just hit a major speed bump. As you know, Florida Republican Rep.

This isn't the first instance of congressional impropriety. In 1983, two members of the House were censured for their dalliances with teenage pages.
