kelly ayotte tells off frank guinta, and more from this unfolding story of congressional corruption

Rep. Frank Guinta has certainly seen better days. Last Wednesday, the New Hampshire Republican paid a fine to the FEC over a mysterious (and illegal) $355,000 campaign loan from his parents, perhaps thinking that he could put this long-running story behind him. However, Guinta's move only led to more questions about his honesty, and his own party wants him out of this swing district.

Last week, Sen. Kelly Ayotte did little to defend the incumbent, but she ditched any subtlety on Monday and publicly told Guinta to get lost. State Senate President Chuck Morse and state House Speaker Shawn Jasper also called for his resignation, while state party chair Jennifer Horn called his situation "serious and extremely troubling." The hacks at the NRCC didn't exactly get Guinta's back either, saying only that they're "continuing to evaluate this very complex situation."

I read guinta's interview in the union leader a week ago. it was supposed to be sympathetic, and still he came off as a lying liar.

1. Keep Guinta in the mix.

If he bows out, Scott Brown shows up at the door with a box of candy and bouquet of flowers for the GOP.

Guinta is an a huge albatross around the necks of the GOP in the next election.

3. Guinta has always had a bad smell about him

They have to burn a lot of TV money to cover the stench, and it don't always work. Ronnie's Rule - "Never speak ill of a fellow Republican" is generally in force here, but it's starting to crack, and Crooked Tony is one of the places that is radiating cracks.
