A Simpler Way To Do This ...

... Would be to just presume that any pol talking about abstinence education was screwing around.

Following the latest such scandal, the Hill has a handy run-down for people who have forgotten or just find it amusing to hear it again:
The admission by [Indiana Republican congressman Mark] Souder was just the latest in a string of sex scandals to have tarnished the Class of 1994’s legacy, which was defined in part by an aggressively socially conservative agenda.

Sex scandals loom over South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R), a member of the ’94 freshman class who divorced his wife this year after admitting in 2009 to carrying on an affair with an Argentinean mistress. Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) remains under investigation for an affair he had with an aide who was married to another staffer working for him. A Senate Ethics panel and the FBI are said to be looking into an alleged deal Ensign had made to keep the affair under wraps.

Former Rep. Mark Foley (R-Fla.) resigned abruptly in 2006 after having allegedly sent sexually explicit messages to male congressional pages.
