Another "C Street" Affair Uncovered

The Capitol Hill townhouse that serves as a dormitory and meeting place for conservative Christian lawmakers "has been linked to a third episode of marital infidelity, this time in a Mississippi court filing by a former lawmaker's estranged wife," reports CQ Politics.

In a lawsuit, former Rep. Charles Pickering's (R-MS) estranged wife "alleges that he carried on an extramarital affair with a onetime college sweetheart while he lived at a house at 133 C Street in Southeast Washington."

Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) -- both of whom admitted to cheating on their wives in recent weeks -- are also members of the Christian fellowship of lawmakers known as "C Street" that met at the same townhouse.

Josh Marshall: "I mean, I don't know about their politics. But these dudes know how to party."
