Is PA Governor Ed Rendell Having An Affair?

By Wyatt Earp | July 4, 2010

Perish the thought. Especially not an affair with a female state employee!

On the same day Philadelphia Magazine hit newsstands with an article speculating about his relationship with a female state employee, Governor Rendell told the Patriot-News of Harrisburg that he was “ready to get out” and that he’s “had it with the media.”

As to the former comment, Rendell says he did not intend to suggest that he’s checked out of governing:

“I said that I was ready to go, not that I’m ‘checking out.’ I think that I’m as engaged as governor as I’ve always been. I prided myself as mayor of Philadelphia that I was working hard the Sunday before the Monday that I left and I will do so for that taxpayers here.”

Rendell, of course, told Philadelphia Magazine that he was not having an affair. We should believe him because, you know, the man is such an honest, trustworthy politician. To quote Dr. Evil: “Riiiiight.”

For me, the only shocking part of this story is that the Philadelphia media is actually covering the rumor. I guess that since Rendell is nearing the end of his term, they don’t feel the need to protect him anymore. The Guv has a lot of secrets, and since he lives in my division, I’ve heard them all. The sad part is that most of the Philly media have known them for years, but swept them under the rug to keep the powerful Democrat’s reputation intact.

Sooner or later, an intrepid reporter will write a book about the real Ed Rendell. It’ll be a juicy read. If you only knew . . .

    Where’s the “industrial-strength pubicide” of Mrs. Crankipants’ from the Paris Hilton thread? I need to use some of it for brain bleach.

    Having the image of Ed Rendell doing the nasty in your head is just…nasty.

    RT – Yeah, scary huh?

    Wes S. – Definitely a mood killer.

    Bob – There was a rumor that he was involved in the same organization” in which Spitzer was involved. I believe it.

    Old NFO – Closed door meetings on poonhoundery.

    I’d rather put on a pair of bacon panties and squat in a piranha tank than have sex with Ed Rendell.

    Until the police learn how to do their jobs, these ass-assbags will rule the day.

    Arrest them or shut up.

    Personally, I think they should be shot, killed, raped, shot aain and raped again.

    And the intrepid reporter’s source will be an anonymous blogger known only as Myatt Durp, right? ;-)

    Mrs. Crankipants – Mmm . . . bacon panties!

    Watuschskie – Yeah, but look at Rendell. What woman wouldn’t go to that extreme to get away from him?

    LDIV – Still better looking than Fat Eddie.

    Kaveman – Um . . . okay then.

    Picky – Nope. I have no interest in the goings-on at the Rendell Estate. I’m glad someone else does, though.

    Captain – I can neither confirm nor deny that rumor.

    Rendell has been having an affair with himself since highschool. HE HAS HAD A GRIP ON IT FOR YEARS.

    Crusty – I guess it prevents him from balancing a budget.
