Capitol Punishment

for Tiger Woods

12/9/2009 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods has officially been declared unfit for Congress -- a California lawmaker is abandoning his plan to give Woods the highest Congressional award for a civilian in the wake of Tiger's scandal.

Capitol Punishment for Tiger Woods
Earlier today, Representative Joe Baca (D-Calif) released a statement saying, "In light of the recent developments surrounding Tiger Woods and his family, I will not pursue legislation awarding him the Congressional Gold Medal this session."

Baca had previously submitted a bill to give Woods the award in recognition of his "service to the Nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship, and in breaking barriers with grace and dignity by showing that golf is a sport for all people."

For the record, the bill had no co-sponsor ... even before the Tiger drama began.

The story was first published by The Hill.

I heard EA sports is adding a download to the Tiger golf video game. It seems that before going from the 9th hole to the 10th if you birdied the 9th you have the option to dash into a hotel for a quickie with a ho.
Marketing has no shame.

I can't believe that he won't be getting that congressional award. We've had a lot of cheating politicians. Former President Bill Clinton and Zippergate, Luv Guv Elliot Spitzer and his prostitutes, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford who flew all the way to Argentina to see his mistress, and former Congressman Larry Craig and his gay incident in an airport men's restroom. They need to look in the mirror.

Michael,

I've been a golf fan since the 70s. One of the things I liked about
the game was it had class. The rules rely on a players honesty and
integrity. Golfers always showed tremendous respect for the players
they were defeating. Then came Tiger Woods. From watching him in the US Amateur it was clear he had no class..his fist pumps and dancing around the green after sinking a putt right in the face of his opponent wasn't something he learned from watching Jones or Hogan. He cheapened the game before he even hit the PGA. If he didn't have the skill he possesses no one would invite such a "gentleman" to golf on their course. The PGA and CBS want him for ratings, I say the game is far better off without him and his crude behavior and how its cheapened a game I love.

In my view being caught red handed at the MGM grand with new aquaintances is to hide them from view to old fashion way with
a blinker/cover of the camer eye and adheer with tape in order to block the view of the door and bed from the in room camera lockated near the cieling shown in smoked style glass(Las Vegas style)!

Ask the pros and then you will know!

By being caught your account could be considered "unrevocably" taboo!

Get serious, big brother is watching you!

Claim sovernity with the crown (England) and file in the ninety five percent tax bracket with the argument of life lasting reign of the English Monarchy! Later days are historically taxed in the ninety five percent areana for estate purposes and is genuinely to behove the estate for posterity reasons!

Do or die! Argument for or against!?

My, my say for the estate reduction plan!

Who says most black people are defending Tiger? I have the same amount of sympathy for him that I had for O.J. ZERO!!!

As for people who are shocked and disgusted by these women who have come forward to say they have slept with Tiger, were you shocked and disgusted when Pam Anderson, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton made their sex tapes? Obviously not! They made millions off those tapes which means a lot of you went out and purchased one. In fact, they were all rewarded for their "shocked and disgusting" behavior in the form of reality shows, clothing lines, endless press, etc.

Whoever said we're not backing Jude Law is right--he's a total wenie and completely unattractive, how he's managed to get any woman to sleep with him is unfathomable....But Jude Law never seemed like the family guy whatsoever--Tiger did. And it isn't a balck/white thing folks, it's a celebrity-who-had-the-world-by-the-balls-and-blew-it kind of thing. I will say I think it's apparent Tiger wasn't a class elitist type--but he has major issues and I'm definitely on Team Elin.

Tiger hope you feel better, and keep your head up, because others have gone down the same path as you. This is nothing new, and we all go threw things. Don't worry about the people who wish to be negative, because they aren't strong enough to deal with their own demons. Hang in there Tiger. This will pass, and new things will come.

Wow, how ironic that some of the worst cheating skanks in the universe see fit to judge Tiger Woods for doing the same thing that they do.
