    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A U.S. congressman was briefly detained at a Kentucky airport Tuesday after authorities found a loaded gun in his bag at a screening checkpoint, authorities said.

    Rep. John Hostettler, R-Indiana, "completely forgot" he had the gun in his bag as he prepared to take a US Airways flight to Washington for the first day of work after a two-week recess, a spokesman for the congressman said.

    But, at least he had fun. (I hope)

    Hey, what I'd like to know is how many __haven't___ had sex in the White House with some one other than their wife:D

    In earlier days there was just less hypocrisy, is all.

    If you went through history and wanted to exclude all leaders from office who ever had sex outside of marriage we'd probably still be living on the trees.
