A scheduled debate between Florida congressman Tim Mahoney (D) and his Republican challenger Tom Rooney did not take place as scheduled because Mahoney did not show up. He objected to the presence of TV cameras. Mahoney, who has admitted to having multiple affairs and may have paid off one of his mistresses, said the cameras would create a “circus” atmosphere. Rooney attended today had the entire event to himself, responding to questions posed by the moderator.

Update

ABC reports that Mahoney demanded his mistress “attend fundraisers and ‘tease c-ck’ to bring in more donations from the male members of the public.” He also reportedly demanded that she “engage in sexual conduct with another woman for his enjoyment.”
