Congressman Vito Fossella’s reputation for advocating good corporate governance was tarnished when it was revealed, through a drunken driving arrest, that he had had an extra-marital affair, which led to having an extra child.
Besides the possibility of serving a little jail time for the DUI, things are looking up for Fossella. The National Association of Manufacturers gave him the Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence, which honors voters who have supported manufacturing in America.
Perhaps the renewed respect will help him regain his authority in the world of business ethics, even if he falls a little short of that sentiment when it comes to romance and driving.
