Yes this would be the case if you are a selfish insensitive person that has a mind overwrought with ego and fueled by power and greed.
It is fodder for the pundits, and since they think they are not victims of the sexual scandals perpetrated by politicians, its accepted by the ever apathetic public as nothing more than business as usual.
There is never any mention of the victims of these scandals, and the public at large remain just to stupid to realize that they have just been victimized themselves.
Since there has been an overwhelming plethora of scandals involving men as the aggressor I will write this post in the masculine gender, mind you I know women also do these same things, but not in the realm of politics, in this milieu it has been for the past 200 years an all boys club.
Without further ado let me introduce you to the victims of these blowhards. The first to suffer are the immediate families that are through no fault of their own forced to swallow this betrayal. To a loyal wife and her children it is mentally devastating, and sometimes it even affects the physical health and well being of a wife and her children depending on their age. The extended families of mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, grandma and grandpa these are just a few more of the shamed and hurt members of the family that are victims.
In some cases these men chose patronizing prostitutes, then shamelessly parade their innocent wife onto a TV station to stand there and act supportive after being battered.
Others chose to be more discrete and have sexual affairs while their wives lay in a hospital bed fighting cancer. Yet some tried to have a homosexual tryst with strangers in public restrooms.
Some chose to abandon their public office for weeks at a time and run to another continent then profess publicly, true love, not to his wife but to a mistress. How humiliating!
While some even donked their own close associates wife, then paid hush money, dragging his parents into his lurid life.
Others while on America's dime tried to lure young underage pages into homosexuality.
Betraying your own flesh and blood and the woman that carried your child is a sin in of itself. It stands alone and shows all the world to see that these men do not even have any self respect, yet alone respect for their own children. Think for a moment who is closer to you than your child? While supposedly serving the public they engaged in a cabal of deceit, shame and dishonor and they scarred their victims forever.
What makes you think that a man that is spineless and lacks integrity and puts himself above his own wife and children and even above his own parents cares about you or your needs? You are nothing to these types of men, and you have to be an idiot to think that your needs are on their minds, and you would be a dolt to lend further support and vote for them, are you like those people? Would you dishonor your family too?
You cannot cheat on your own flesh and blood and destroy their hearts and souls, and then in the same breath care about the needs of your constituency that happen to be total strangers. An oxymoron to say the least.
It is time that we the people demand that in order to run for public office that candidates take profile tests along with some psychological and IQ tests to assure that they possess some intellect, and that they reach certain profile benchmarks.
The higher the office the harder the tests. From what I have been exposed to about our public officials and not just about sex scandals, but about governing in general there are some very scary and incompetent people in who's hands our destiny lies.
