The Times Leader asks Sherwood to spill the beans

The Whole Story
But it’s not that simple. In the police report, Sherwood says he was giving the woman a back rub. Sherwood has been married for 33 years, according to his own congressional Web site.
When Sherwood spoke to Times Leader reporters, he called the woman an acquaintance. He said he didn’t invite her. But then, why let her into his apartment?

Well Donny why was she in your apartment????

Now the Washington Post Questions the Don

Don Sherwood: On-Message but Off-Massage
· Rep. Don Sherwood , the 64-year-old married Republican embroiled in controversy over an incident involving a 29-year-old woman in his apartment last year, has apologized to his family and supporters for causing them "pain and embarrassment." But he did not address his relationship with Cynthia Ore , who claims to have been his lover for six years. Police say Ore called 911 on Sept. 15, alleging that Sherwood began to choke her while giving her a back rub, but she quickly changed her story, saying they were only sipping tea. He denied assaulting Ore but did tell police he gave her a back rub.
In a terse statement issued Tuesday evening, Sherwood said he was "truly sorry" and would "begin the healing process" with his family. "I plan no further comment on this personal matter."

Breaking News

GrassrootsPA reports CNN Inside Politics is covering Sherwood. It will also cover GrassrootsPA's coverage of the Mr. Sherwood's adultery and may mention this humble blog.
I also received an email from a CNN producer asking me to share information about myself I responded
"I am a Concerned Republican Activists in Northeast PA. I do not want to reveal myself to ruin my good ties with other Solid Republican leaders supporting the Congressman, Who I admired until recently. I believed President Clinton should have resigned, and I believe the same thing about Congressman Sherwood. Finally if the Congressman does not resign I would like to support a true family values Candidate in the 2006 primary."

Donny speaks yet says Nothing

From the AP
"I'm truly sorry," Sherwood said. "Now, I have work to do. I'm going to continue to work hard for the people of the 10th Congressional District, and to begin the healing process with my family."
Thats it Don, just Im sorry no explanation. Not good enough.
She tells a much different story
When I met him he told me he was getting a divorce
The met in 1999, the year he was sworn in. Wow he would of just been elected to congress and he is already thinking of dumping his wife.
Now here is what is going to really kill Dapper Don
He never did get a divorce,” Ore has said. “He said he has to stay married to get elected.
“For me to start to go back to that day is very painful to deal with all the suffering I went through.” Ore said Tuesday. “I loved him. He always told me he loved me and I believed him.”

GOP rallies, but Sherwood is vulnerable to a primary challenge

The Times Leader talks about GOP rallying around Sherwood.
"The only thing you have in life is your reputation," said Marge Matisko, an activist with the Luzerne County Republican Party. "Don Sherwood has always been very well-respected, and he always valued that. This has hurt him personally and professionally, and that's a shame."

AP Covering Sherwood

The AP has picked up this story. The also inform the public that Dapper Don and his lady met back in 1999 at a Young Republican Meeting.

Does Don Sherwood have to Choke a?

On Saturday the Times Leader of Wilkes-Barre reported that Congressmen Don Sherwood of the 10th district (NEPA) was accused of choking a women in D.C. It seems he did not choke her(I could not resist quoting Chapelle) why was this married 64 year old with a 29 year old. This is not illegal but Conservatives should feel outraged. Clinton was wrong for committing adultery so is Sherwood. The GOP should replace him for the next election.
