These Things Happen

From the Times
, a constituent reacts to congressman Vito Fossella admitting he’d fathered a child with a woman with whom he was having an affair:

James Mahones, 26, expressed a common sentiment as he waited for a customer at his barber chair at Aces Barbershop on Giffords Lane, not far from the home in Great Kills that Mr. Fossella shares with his wife and three children.

“We still support the guy,” Mr. Mahones said. “He is a good guy. It happens to the best of us.”
