The Bob Dornan Hall of Fame

Bob Dornan's confirmed offspring (Robin, Kate, Theresa, Mark and Bob Jr.)
Like their infamous father, the Dornan kids are class acts. When Bob lost his rematch with Loretta Sanchez in 1998, the entire family shined. On TV, an angry Bob branded Sanchez a "serial adulterer." Daughter Kate and her thug boyfriend made a derogatory remark about Republican Senate candidate Matt Fong and then got into fistfights with tiny, old, Asian Republican onlookers. Although she smelled like booze, we're sure Kate was her naturally pleasant self when she screamed from the stage, "It's not over yet, Loretta. We're coming after you bad. Do you hear me?" Bob's namesake, Bob Jr., later took a long gulp of his Budweiser and told a Weeklyreporter that the Asian Republicans didn't understand "class" like the Dornan family. Said Junior Dornan, "I told them, 'Man, you aren't nothing but low-class assholes, so shut up.'"
