Daily News editor to Antonio: Repent

Chris Weinkopf, editorial page editor of the Daily News, is a conservative and a Catholic. On the paper's opinion blog, he just called on Mayor Villaraigosa to give up his affair and get back with Corina:

The noble course of action here is plain: End the adultery, try to make amends with your wife, and repent. If that's too hard to do while living in a media fish bowl and playing mayor to the world, then quit. The city will survive without you; your family, probably not.

Weinkopf's post also plays a very weak straw man card and pretends that some unnamed PC forces want to shut him up — all so he can boast that "I am not afraid" to call Antonio a cheater and Mirthala a homewrecker.

Noted: The Times website put up a short story on the affair at 11:13 am.
