AshleyMadison.com -- the dating website for married people -- had its six-millionth signup today, May 18, at noon. "We gave the member 1,000 free credits for being the monumental signup," says Caitlyn Coverly, the AshleyMadison.com media relations spokesperson. (While it's free to sign up for AshleyMadison.com, contacting people isn't. Users buy "credits" and must use them whenever they want to chat up a new person. A thousand credits typically cost $249.)

This coincides with Indiana Congressman Mark Souder's cheating confession and resignation. Souder, a Republican proponent of abstinence and family values, confessed that he's been having an affair with a staff member, and resigned today. He is married and has three grown children and two grandchildren.

Cheating never stops!

Cheating at Work: Top 6 Internal Affairs

Rep. Mark Souder and TracyJackson

ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips acknowledged having an affair with Brooke Hundley, a 22-year-old assistant at the cable network. Brooke sent a graphic letter to Phillips' wife, Marni, describing their sordid relationship.

David Letterman and Stephanie Birkitt

In front of a nationwide "Late Show" audience, David Letterman admitted he had engaged in sexual relationships with female employees on his show. Later it was revealed that one of those women was long-time production assistant Stephanie Birkitt. The confession was triggered by an alleged extortion plot concocted by Birkitt's former boyfriend, CBS News employee Robert "Joe" Halderman.

Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky

When 22-year-old Monica Lewinsky was serving her country as a White House intern, she was also serving President Bill Clinton some hardcore canoodling. Ultimately, Clinton had to admit to the country and to his wife Hillary that he indeed did "have sexual relations with that woman."

Jim Bakker and Jessica Hahn

In 1980, Jessica Hahn was a 21-year-old secretary at the Christian television program "The PTL Club." She says in December of that year, she was drugged and raped by her boss, married televangelist Jim Bakker (a claim he denies, saying he was set up).

She later posed for Playboy.

Mark Foley and Unnamed Congressional Page

Why oh why would anyone need a website to help them cheat?!

Jenny May 18, 2010, 3:16 PM

People need a website to help them cheat if they are stay at home moms who are never around men. My husband ignores me. I would cheat at work if I could but I don’t work!

@Jenny. Cheating if you’re an at-home mom would be really dumb. How would you support yourself when you got caught?

Jenny May 18, 2010, 4:30 PM

That’s what alimony and child support is for.

@Jenny - Are you a real SAHM or some guy being funny? Women end up poor when they get divorced. Alimony is a temporary thing and many women don’t even get it. Child support is never enough to actually support the kids.

Ashley Madison gets a lot of free advertising every time the release a story about themselves. Maybe they’re hurting for female members or something?
