Newspaper Calls on Fossella to Step Down

Friday, May 09, 2008

Saying his decisions have cost him the faith and respect of people who believed in him, the Staten Island Advance is calling on Republican Congressman Vito Fossella to resign immediately.

Since 1997 Fossella has represented Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn.

He's the only Republican Congressman from New York City.
