The secretive Christian extremist group known as "the Family" has been in the news a lot lately after two high-profile Republican sex scandals were linked to them. Now it appears that a third Republican linked to the infamous "C Street House" has been accused of having an affair, and this time, he's from Mississippi. The wife of former Rep. Chip Pickering was in court to file a lawsuit against a woman alleged to be her husband's mistress.

As CNN notes, this makes Pickering "the third politician associated with the Capitol Hill 'Christian Fellowship' home to be embroiled in a sex scandal." It appears that the Family may be a story for some time. The more I learn about the organization, the more I think that is probably a good thing.
