There is an Affairs data set in package AER which could be loaded by

data(Affairs) # not "load"

but the error message you quote looks like you are trying to read some
self-made data. A guess would be that you should read the documentation of
read.table(), but it is just a guess, because we do not know the politicians
involved in your Affairs.

R also comes with a documentation "R data import/export"
