President Clinton abused his wife with his extra marital affairs and he didn't resign his office. The United States senators refused to fire fire him even though he did not set a good example for our youth to follow.

I love how the GOP always brings up Clinton 10 or more years later but any Foley reference is staunchly defended.

What Clinton did was disappointing, but not illegal. Olson claims to have this huge Christian philosophy and is an advocate for "families"...and now he has allegations that he beats his wife. How can you condone that by comparing it to something, that wasn't illegal, that Clinton did?

The bottom line is Olson, just like Bachmann, won himself a position of powerlessness. Do you think anyone will take his moral agenda seriously anymore?
By abusing his wife, Olson also gave a black eye to his Minnesota Republican party.
I say let him stay :-)

They have to bring back Clinton because the right has nothing else to go on so they will bring back Clinton when talking about a 40-50 year old man you sending sexually explicit messages to underage boys, or when a homosexual meth head evangelic preacher cheats on his wife, or when a man abuses his wife.
But come on, its not like Olson was cheating on his wife and abusing his mistress, no republican would never do th---oh,
never mind

... or better yet, put him on that Sunday morning Mac Hammond show and let him cry and beg Jesus...
not to let his wife pi$s him off again...
Yeah, that'd work :-)

Just for the record -- adultery is, in fact, a crime in some states.
An "extramarital affair" is illegal in the District of Columbia, where adultery is a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of $500 or 180 days in jail.
It's a misdemeanor as well in Virginia, Maryland and more than 20 other states, and a felony in Idaho, Massachusetts, Michigan, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.

Felony in 5 states? I wonder how often this crime is prosecuted...

It seems like the GOPers out here have written Mark Olson off as the defenders of MO are few and far between now. Less posting on defending the alleged actions of MO.

Even T-Paw and his party have written off Mr Olson.

From Dump Mark Olson

Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty joined in the call Friday."If it turns out that he is found guilty or pleads guilty to the conduct alleged, it's just not appropriate for him to be serving in the Legislature," Pawlenty said.

Minnesota House Republicans are breaking off ties with a fellow GOP legislator facing domestic abuse charges.Republicans voted Thursday to oust seven-term Representative Mark Olson of Big Lake from the caucus. In short, they won't supply him with staff support or other services. Caucus spokeswoman Jodi Boyne says the move means -- quote -- "Basically, he's on his own."
