Vito Fossella Is Back! Sort Of

More

Yes, you read that correctly. Former Congressman Vito Fossella could, once again, become Congressman Vito Fossella: the Staten Island Republican Committee endorsed Fossella to run for his old seat in 2010, Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson reports.


Fossella retired at the end of his term in 2008, after a drunk driving arrest in Virginia...followed by the admission of an extramarital affair, through which he fathered a daughter. This doesn't necessarily mean Fossella will run for reelection...but he'd have the local backing if he did.
