Keith Fitzgerald severs ties with new aide who made sexually-charged rants against Republicans



Democratic U.S. House candidate Keith Fitzgerald tells Sarasota Herald-Tribune he has severed ties with a newly-hired staffer who, it turns out, enjoyed posting sexually-charged rants against Republicans on her blog.

A sample from Ana Maria Rosato's blog: "Look at the evidence. Republicans damned sure aren’t acting as if they routinely experience that kind of rip-your-clothes-off – as you – walk – through – the – door – can’t – w-a-i-t – to kiss – your lips – and feel – your hands – all – o-v-e-r – my body – that kind of physical – merging where pleasure, pure unadulterated pleasure takes over – where being – pleased – where pleasing – each other, taking-you-to-new-heights-of-sheer ..."

It's an embarrassing moment for Fitzgerald, who has seen some momentum fade against Republican Rep. Vern Buchanan of Sarasota. Rosato had just been hired as Fitzgerald's spokeswoman.
