Former Republican Senator Knocks Up Fellow Senator's Daughter. But Just The One Time!
Former New Mexico Sen. Pete Domenici told the Journal on Tuesday he fathered a son outside of his marriage over 30 years ago, revealing a secret kept for decades.
Statements given to the Journal by Domenici and the son’s mother, Michelle Laxalt of Alexandria, Va., identified the son as Adam Paul Laxalt, a Nevada lawyer. Michelle Laxalt formerly was a prominent government relations consultant and television political commentator in Washington, D.C. She is a daughter of former U.S. senator and Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt.
Michelle Laxalt said “one night’s mistake led to pregnancy” and she chose to raise the son as a single parent.

you may be thinking of his involvement in the US attorneys scandal in 06.. one of those fired was from New Mexico... Pete was implicated, as was Heather Wilson (Republican house member).... our dear friend Karl Rove was into that up to his eyeballs.. and of course it went nowhere with Alberto Gonzales as A G
