Six-term US Congressman from New York who rarely made headlines until a 2008 drunk driving charge in Virginia. News of the DWI led to revelations that he maintained two homes -- one with his wife and children in New York, and a second with his long-time mistress in Virginia. After discussing it with his families, Fossella declined to run for re-election in 2008. In 2010 he was re-nominated by the Staten Island Republican Party to run again for his old seat in Congress against Democratic incumbent Michael McMahon.
