    This was a truly bizarre incident:

    In ‘sexxxy mama’ texting scandal, state Rep. Richard Steinberg quits legislative office

    State Rep. Richard Steinberg, D-Miami Beach, resigns from his state House seat in the wake of sexting scandal.

    Under Secret Service investigation for sending stalker-like texts to a federal prosecutor, Democratic state Rep. Richard Steinberg on Friday abruptly resigned his Miami Beach seat

    Throughout the summer, Steinberg used a disguised Yahoo! account with the screen name “itsjustme24680” to send text messages to Assistant U.S. Attorney Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos.

    Over months, Fernandez-Karavetsos told investigators, the texter sent suggestive messages, calling her “sexxxy mama” and asking about her infant son. Fernandez-Karavetsos, who knew Steinberg through professional services, repeatedly asked the person to stop and identify himself.

    “Considering we’re both married parents, probably best I not answer that at this point,” the texter, Steinberg, wrote back.

    JPtheBITCH saidAnother politician with incredibly bad judgement and no discernible impulse control.

    Would it be rude to say "Hold the presses?"

    I have to say, having attended a few Commission meetings when he was serving here in Miami Beach, one would have never thought HE would be the kind of person to do this. icon_eek.gif
