Senator Admits He Had a Secret Child

Former Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) told the Albuquerque Journal that he has a son born in secrecy 30 years ago.

Said Domenici: "More than 30 years ago, I fathered a child outside my marriage. I deeply regret this and am very sorry for my behavior. I hope New Mexicans will view that my accomplishments for my beloved state outweigh my personal transgression."

Washington Post: "Domenici said that he kept the matter secret because the mother of the child, Michelle Laxalt, asked him to do so. Her father, Paul Laxalt, was himself a U.S. senator from Nevada from 1974 to 1987."

Roll Call: "Eight evidently wasn't enough for Domenici"
