"Family Value" Republicans & Sexual Indiscretions

Why is it always the conservative Republicans, you know that ones who scream "family values" and want to pass "family" friendly laws, are the ones who are caught with the sexual indiscretions and crimes?

Recently there was the "Family Values" Senator Vitter who frequented the prostitution ring in D.C (and also in New Orleans) and then we had Florida Rep. Bob Allen. This Republican was caught trying to solicit sex from an undercover officer in a bathroom:
Rep. Allen is the author of failed Florida House Bill #1475, the "Lewd and Lecivious Behavior Act" which would have made public masturbation in the presence of another adult illegal, whether the other adult consented or not. Florida statutes already cover such behavior for when a minor is present and the bill died in committee in two months ago. I'm pretty sure Rep. Allen was violating #1475 when he offered to blow that cop, doncha think? Lucky for him it didn't pass!

And now, over at Pam's House Blend we find another Republican:

N.C. legislator resigns after misconduct allegations surface

Yeah, and the hit parade continues for the GOP-ers, though in this case it's hard to tell what he did, but Stanly County Republican Rep. David Almond abruptly resigned today after a personnel complaint was lodged with the Speaker's office alleging "serious improper behavior." Almond was vice chairman of the House committee on children, youth and families, BTW.

Hmm...who will be the next Conservative "Family Values" Republican resigning for sexual indiscretions?
