Will Foster return Weiner money?

Republicans are beating the drums, asking if former Democratic Congressman Bill Foster of Batavia plans to return $1,000 in “tainted contributions” he received from disgraced New York Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Weiner, of course, is the Democratic-orator-turned-apologist who’s married to a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who found himself in a heap of trouble after it became clear he’d sent inappropriate photos of himself to several women (none his wife, who happens to be pregnant).

“Will Bill Foster return his scandal-tainted Weiner money ... or will he silently condone his former colleague’s unacceptable and potentially ethically-compromised behavior?” a GOP email blast asked. Foster, who plans to run again, has not replied to our request for comment.
