The ‘ISIS Groom’ Drops Out

U.S. Congressman Van Taylor

( – It’s not every day that a sitting United States congressman – a married man with three children – drops out of his re-election race because he had to fess up to having an affair with a woman dubbed the ISIS Bride because of her previous marriage to an American jihadi.

But, as reported by Breitbart, which broke the original affair story a week before the congressman admitted to the torrid affair and dropped out his re-election bid:

“Rep. Van Taylor (R-TX) suspended his campaign on Wednesday upon admitting he had an affair with “ISIS bride” Tania Joya…

“‘About a year ago, I made a horrible mistake that has caused deep hurt and pain among those I love most in this world. I had an affair, it was wrong, and it was the greatest failure of my life,’ he said in a public statement.”

And as the Texas Tribune noted about the excellent expose reporting by Breitbart:

“The day before the primary, the conservative outlet Breitbart News posted a story…that claims that Taylor had a monthslong affair with a Plano woman, Tania Joya, who alleged he paid her $5,000 to keep quiet. The publication reported that she provided it a phone screenshot purporting to be communications with Taylor and a bank record showing that she deposited $5,000 into her account.”

Well, given the congressman’s admission, we now know it’s all true. A sitting congressman from Texas of all places engaged in a long, steamy affair with a woman best known as the “ISIS Bride.”

What do you think? Are you glad the congressman was exposed by Breitbart and has dropped out of his re-election bid? Please email [email protected] with your reaction and opinion. Thank you, and have a good day.
