Army General Scolded For Email Joking About Masturbating To 'Smoking Hot' Congresswoman
Business Insider ^ | January 27 | Geoffrey Ingersoll

Posted on 02/04/2014 8:01:59 PM PST by Red6

Army Brigadier General Martin P. Schweitzer received a "memoranda of concern" following a lurid set of emails between him and another general, according to documents obtained by The Washington Post.

Schweitzer was briefing Brigadier Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair on a recent meeting he had with tea party Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.) in 2011.

From WaPo:

“First — she is smoking hot,” Schweit­zer wrote. “Second — briefing went well . . . she was engaging . . . had done her homework. She wants us to know she stands with us and will work/push to get the Fort Bragg family resourced.”

In the new and improved DoD, liking women appears to get you in trouble, but guys liking guys is OK. Texting that some Representative is "smoking hot" (the comment - no sexual relations!) is a huge deal, and in fact gets a Brigadier General canned, but the homosexual gets applauded for their heroism in coming out. Is this a joke? If this were a general stating he was homosexual how would the news spin the story and how would the Army react?

We expect many to be near robots, perfect, never telling an off color joke, commenting on the looks of a woman, making a value judgement on some behavior or culture, or becoming intoxicated to the point of embarrassing themselves, getting a DWI etc. That behavior is inexcusable, but being an officer an dressed up in leather at a gay pride rally, or being a senior officer in the state department and leading the way in a gay pride rally in Europe and being photographed in a skin tight belly shirt with super extra short shorts and printed all over the media, that's all fine today.

Isn’t Ellmers the one who may have to run against Clay Aiken?

I don’t think too many guys advance to flag rank by being stupid. This smells like a hit job, like someone airing a comment using the account of this General.

I agree about the double standards you’re pointing out. However, when you are in a position of authority / leadership, you should be very discerning about what you put into an email.

There are some things that are best left private...particularly when the luster has stars on his shoulders and the lustee has oversight authority over said officer.

“I don’t think too many guys advance to flag rank by being stupid.”

Offered in rebuttal: Gen. Petraeus. Thinking with the wrong head can strike any rank & usually with disastrous results.

Used to be if you didn’t want to step on a mine, you avoided minefields. In today’s military, you carry a minefield around in your shirt pocket.

I wouldn’t convict her, but probation perhaps. Her innocence is questionable. Maybe she gets off with community service.

Male perception of female beauty is often relative.

This guy should just put in his papers and retire. One thing about flags is that very few of them are irreplaceable and there are plenty of guys that can take his job tomorrow.

It isn't a matter of political correctness. It is a matter of discipline.

Never mind Gen. Schweizer’s stupid email. This is small potatoes compared to the general he was conversing with (Sinclair). He’s facing 35 years in the brig for a multitude of offenses including sodomy, pornography and conduct unbecoming an officer. His court martial starts next month I believe.

Several years ago at a wedding, I met a young grandmother (she was 52, I was 57) who was pretty “smoking hot” for her age - a well-tailored cocktail dress showing off a shapely figure and stunning legs. She looked better than a number of the bride’s sorority sisters and I wasn’t even drinking (designated driver back to the hotel).

Probably, but not the premeditated variety. This one is an unexpected opportunity they won’t want to pass up methinks.

Petraeus’ fall from grace had nothing to do with stupidity, merely with lust. That happens to lots of people and is not relevant to the discussion.

“Petraeus’ fall from grace had nothing to do with stupidity, merely with lust.”

A fine line separates the two. Lust often results in stupid behavior, which is then called to account. As in this case.
