Vito Fossella Resignation Watch, Part 2

Today we have several editorials calling for Fossella to resign.

NYPost under the title Time to go, Vito;

Vito Fossella needs to just go away.


via the Staten Island Advance, Mr. Fossella, resign;

In wake of the widening scandal surrounding Rep. Vito Fossella, the Staten Island Advance today called on the congressman to resign from office.

"Far too much damage has been done to his personal reputation and credibility at this point for him to recover and be an effective public servant," the paper wrote in an editorial today. "And there is too much potential for pointless and endlessly embarrassing digressions into this scandal if he chooses to stay in public life."

Brooklyn Paper calls for resignation;

But the congressman needs to take the logical final step: he must resign sooner, rather than later.

Regardless of the outcome of Fossella’s legal and personal struggles, voters in Bay Ridge and Staten Island will simply not be served during the final six months of Fossella’s current term unless the six-term congressman resigns immediately.
