NY1 VIDEO: Once a rising star among city Republicans, Congressman Vito Fossella became tabloid fodder in May 2008 when a drunk driving arrest revealed he had fathered a child with a woman in Virginia. In his home district of Staten Island, speculation swirled around whether he would continue with his re-election bid or possibly resign from Congress. NY1's Amanda Farinacci filed this report on May 9, 2008.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: Fossella would opt not to run for re-election, but did finish out his term. He was sentenced to five days in jail on the drunk driving charge and now works as a consultant.
