At least he's not running again. I wonder if he was a private non-homosexual individual if he'd have a more severe punishment for the theft?
Don't know. But all eyes are watching. In theory his homosexuality won't matter, but he was an MP and he did a lot of whining and crying publicly as he turned himself in . He claimed stress made him do it. As he said, something just snapped and he pocketed the 50k ring . Note he used the word "pocketed", not "stole" . I doubt he regards himself as a thief .
