The Strange Capitol Hill Resignation: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight on 360°, what led Erica Massa to step down from Congress? There's talk of cancer, ticklefights and even a shower visit from White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel. We've got the raw politics. Plus, a baby rescued from the rubble in Haiti thought to be an orphan, but now a couple says this child belongs to them.

    I'm glad Haiti is still being talked about too...but what about Rawanda and any number of other disastrous stories?

    @David, indiana, Fellow Hoosier,
    I can understand if you have not seen the commercial. I hope you can see it; it's very funny and E-Trade has had commercials featuring babies for a long time. Actually one of them was rated No. 2 for Super Bowl commercials if you didn't see it.
    I think you'll agree about Lohan once you see it.

    what happened to Monley., Anderson? and what about the boy you saved?

    @Mike formely from syracuse, If you read the whole story, the baby was found in the arm of the dead nanny.That's why they though she was an orphan.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:55 pm |
  15. Kim- Ohio

    Well the DNA test will solve the mystery!!! If they are the parents what a miracle!!!

    March 9, 2010 at 10:55 pm |
  16. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    I hope baby will be bring her home with belong her parents, Hope wil have match DNA! I am praying so hard!!!!!

    March 9, 2010 at 10:55 pm |
  17. Vivian - Mtl

    I hope that they turn out to be the parents of that baby and not something else.

    Hey Anderson,

    Enjoying all stories tonight – tickle me politicans, rabbit Pruis' to learning about the inner workings of gangs. However nothing beats your commitment to covering Haiti.

    Thank you.

    Have a great evening.

    If this couple is the baby's parents the fact that the child is now in the U.S. won't help them emigrate, will it? She's not an anchor baby. She wasn't born in the states.

    I don't see any reason why the couple would make up a story.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:55 pm |

    @Emily: It was the 1970's, I think those crimes were not taken as seriously as today. You only have to think of Roman Polinski. Although, he fled I still think he would have beat those charges back then if he had stayed in the U S.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:54 pm |
  21. Heather - Spokane, WA

    I find it suspicious that after almost three months these people are saying that this is their baby

    March 9, 2010 at 10:54 pm |
  22. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    How do this couple explain how the baby ended up buried with someone else?

    March 9, 2010 at 10:54 pm |
  23. Katie

    That's so sweet the baby survived is a miracle. Get the DNA results, and return her to her parents as soon as she is well!

    @Emily, "I hope that he has a bit with Father Boyle too."

    Yes, I remember Father Boyle was so passionate about helping these kids.

    @Casey
    Very funny!!!! LOL! 🙂

    March 9, 2010 at 10:53 pm |
  26. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    So do DNA testing and find out if the baby is theirs or not

    March 9, 2010 at 10:52 pm |
  27. Emily

    Are there DNA tests that they can run for with the Parents and baby Patrica?

    March 9, 2010 at 10:52 pm |
  28. LisaL -Canada

    i hope baby patricia ends up where she is supposed to be.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:52 pm |
  29. Kim- Ohio

    @Molly...you would think they would do background checks.

    @Jo Ann,

    "I felt so badly for Ms. Brock when I first saw "Homicide in Hollenbeck" and hearing about it again brings those feelings back"

    It was really emotional watching Ms. Brock. It's a great series this week that AC has. I hope that he has a bit with Father Boyle too. I've not seen any preview to any thing for that as of yet.

    @Claus, I have to admit I haven't seen the commercial. Just thought there might be some copying of dialogue, something like that.

    A chilling story about the dating game guy. But it's maybe misleading viewing it all in retrospect.

    @Cessy-Chicago

    I'm with you, i don't need to see that dating game video again in this lifetime!

    March 9, 2010 at 10:51 pm |
  34. Molly

    Creepy is right! Didn't the "Dating Game" do any background checks on contestants prior to the show airing?

    March 9, 2010 at 10:50 pm |
  35. Gayle McCauley Malden,Mass.

    @Casey Jones .You are very funny! : )

    March 9, 2010 at 10:50 pm |
  36. Kim- Ohio

    @Heather- Spokane....true!!! She could have been his next victim.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  37. Heather - Spokane, WA

    @Nancy, thanks! I also have to agree with Gayle, I hate it when my date turns out to be a serial killer

    March 9, 2010 at 10:49 pm |

    Good night everyone my headache is getting the best of me! Enjoy the rest of the show! See you tomorrow.

  39. Vivian - Mtl

    @ Emily
    I agree - it is in his eyes

    March 9, 2010 at 10:49 pm |
  40. Karoline, Los Angeles

    He does look like Bundy in his younger pictures, doesn't he?

    March 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm |
  41. Cessy-Chicago

    No Thanks! to watching the dating game video. That was enough for me.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm |
  42. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    Why was he out if he had been convicted of rape already?

    March 9, 2010 at 10:47 pm |
  43. Emily

    Wow, he had been Convicted of Raping a Child and Still made it on the Show!!!

    March 9, 2010 at 10:47 pm |
  44. Heather - Spokane, WA

    The two contestants never went out.......someone was watching over her!

    March 9, 2010 at 10:47 pm |
  45. Danie T.

    @Nancy
    I agree but she can't never gain full closure but justice would bring at least some phsycological/emotional closure

    March 9, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  46. Casey Jones - Palm Springs, CA

    Regarding "The Dating Game" footage, I find it so interesting how cute we all look when we are young.....OMG I think I need to look in the mirror again (YIKES)!

    March 9, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  47. Helen

    He looks like Ted Bundy.

    March 9, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  48. Vivian - Mtl

    i get a bad vibe looking at that serial killer

    March 9, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  49. starr, formerly known as vincent

    Very, very creepy story.

    I have mixed feelings on the death penalty, but this guy seems to be a definite candidate!

    You are very clever.
