“My Sister and Brother in Law are both NYC Democrats and they spout the same thing, its only sex! They did nothing wrong, to which I say, So, if I had an extra-marital affair, its okay because Im still taking care of your Sister and the Family? They both go on to say, Its not the same thing!........
What am I missing here?”
This is the difference to me- if you cheat on your wife, and did nothing illegal, you shouldn’t lose your job over the affair. Having an affair is not illegal in most cases. Wrong, but not illegal. If your wife forgives you then it really shouldn’t matter to anyone else.
Okay, I can understand that, but I’m not the one in charge of a State, or one better, a Country. A person in Public Office must be held to a higher standard, if only to show they can be trusted with decisions that will make a difference to the Public life, not their Personal life.
I just don’t trust someone in power who is asked a question, can give an answer and then is shown to have given false information later. It doesn’t go with what I was taught about integrity.
I may not have done something illegal, but if it has a CHANCE of interfering with my job, and will bring discredit to the my Company, then they should look at disciplinary action at the least.
