GOP Implosion?

Are these two new problems for the GOP?

This from Dana Milbank, last night with Keith Olbermann:

Already, there are rumors now about a third, this one involving a 16-year-old girl. That’s been swirling around Washington today.


Las Vegas Sun reports that 5 term Congressman and Nevada gov. candidate was accused of assaulting a woman:

According to [the woman's] statement, the congressman grabbed her arms with both hands as they approached the parking garage elevator.

"And I said, 'Are you really, you know, rape me at this time?' And he said, 'You have two choices right now,'" [the woman] told police. "And I said, 'No way.' I said, 'I've survived cancer and then you're going to turn around and do this.'"

[The woman] said she ran to a nearby coffee shop and called 911.
