How many marriages does a Republican have to have to get some attention?

In the wake of Mark Sanford's admission of an affair yesterday, The Washington Post and MSNBC both have features listing "sex scandals" of various politicians.

Somehow, both managed to omit thrice-married former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who led the charge to impeach Bill Clinton even as he was having an affair (with a staffer!) of his own. The Post also left out Bob Livingston, who also admitted to an affair while trying to impeach Clinton, costing him the chance to be Speaker of the House. And the paper omitted Rudy Giuliani, whose wife had to get a restraining order to keep him from bringing his mistress to the mayor's mansion, and who dumped his wife via press conference.
