Okay, I rescind my earlier comments
re: (now ex) Congressman Weiner – read today in The Atlantic that he was “chatting up” constituents who wrote him to ask about issues. So yeah. No. That’s not cool. Totally not cool.
It’s one thing to be doing this with someone who is into it (regrettably not your wife). It’s entirely another to be trolling your constituents for sexy time.
So, Gal, I take back my comments from the previous post and I agree that he was right to have resigned. While I’m sorry to see him go because I liked his willingness to tangle with idiots, this is just not acceptable behavior from anyone much less someone who is supposed to uphold the public trust. Politicians can be high on the “lacking in the public trust” part, unfortunately.
Mea Culpa. I was wrong.
