It took 30 years, but former senator Pete Domenici (N.M.-R) has decided to clean his closet of skeletons. And what a skeleton it is: Domenici says he fathered an out-of-wedlock son with the lobbyist daughter of a fellow Senate Republican, Nevada’s Paul Laxalt. Domenici says he kept the child a secret at the request of the mother, Michele Laxalt. The 90-year-old is still active in politics, and worked behind the scenes to build support for Romney in Nevada in 2012.
