    What is up with all these politicial public scandals going crazy in the media? Lies and cheating.
    And why can't these guys keep their [​IMG] in their pants!!!!!!

    The latest is Will Weiner's Sexting Scandal. And accidentally posting a close up of his underwear(with something poking through) on twitter.

    Quote:Yeah, this goes way back, think the Kennedy's, Chappaquiddick, etc. But now with stupid twitter, facebook, etc., it's just so much easier to get caught.


    As to "why"... I don't know, I guess I can't argue the power theory. Politicians *in general* are a strange breed.

    I agree and sometimes they think they are "above" others in society.
