Were these American political leaders perpetual #$%$ men who were into adultery but got away with it because of an adoring press?
And fawning voters willing to overlook personal character as a foundation for honest public service?
Warren Gamliel Harding
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Lyndon Baines Johnson.
Hey, some of these guys were POTUS!
What does a barge full of congressional sewerage count up against POTUS?
Then there were the recent antics of governors from Souf Carolyngia and Niew Yawk.
Throw in some mayors like Rudy Guliani for good measure, and what should you conclude?
The voters don't care; moral niceties are not prerequisites for successful electoral success. All IMHO.
Somebody asked why William Jefferson Clinton wasn't on the list.
IF Hilarious Hilary runs for POTUS in 2016, the issue will surface again in all of its dimensions. Don't want to rain on Hilary's parade this early.
And where is Utah's Senator Brown, youse ask. Dead; his girlfriend found letters from yet another woman not his wife and shot him dead. Contrast Utah's Senator Brown and the plural marriage Governor Brigham Young of Utah. Triage is nearly impossible in addressing a story of American adulterous politicians with its longevity. All IMHO.
