So what you are saying is, a public official, police officer, sheriff deputy, fire fighter and so on should not be criticized when they do something wrong when it happens in their personal life? I always thought they were held just to a tad bit higher standard.. I guess if you say so.
Yes, personal is personal. This site should not be a personal attack forum. If your real name was attached you could be charged for libel. Just because your real name is not attached should not make this a forum for attacking one's personal life.

Someone's parents, children, family can be hurt with reckless accusations.

To address above, each of us should hold ourselves at a higher standard not just the public officials.

I am not perfect but I know right from wrong.

So you are saying if they are a thief in their personal life, it shouldn't matter? If they drive and drink off duty, it doesn't matter?
Did you think it was ok when Ex-President Clinton had "sexual relations" with Monica Lewinsky??? I didn't. By your standards, since he didn't do it in the public eyes, it's ok.
Rescind my comments??? No way. Public figures are just that.
Ok, to break it down. Clinton was wrong because he used a public office to commit these acts and that is what made him fair game ie Kenneth Star.
Yes, you owe an apology for personal attacks to any public official if you will not put your real name to them.

Well, I appreciate the lecture you have given me and the entire topix site. I really thought about taking your advice but until you put your real name, I will just continue on as if you have said nothing. I am sure your real name will be displayed on your next post since that is how you measure a person on this site.

Wow... double standards. That's exactly what's wrong with society. We make excuses for people's behavior based on whether we like them or not. Some publicly elected and business owners- leader people will go to great means to "protect" themselves and others from the truth.

Call a spade a spade, girl.

The guy was married, he represented the US of A, we paid him. Then he lied to tons of people (kind of like a local person who is our leader), and you make excuses for him.

If you shouldn't do it in public, then you probably shouldn't do it in private. Someone will always see it.

People in our town grow weary of two-facers. Just look at topix. Many of these people are so frustrated, that this is their only outlet. They find the occasional supporter who sees the facts for what they are, FACTS.

Even the media isn't going to touch some of the facts. Why? Because they are more concerned about portraying Frankfort as something it's not. What they might want to be concerned about is the accounting tactics that they have to use to make their readership look higher than what it is in the world of reality.

Then others come on and give excuses for their behavior.

What's even better, no one that I know of has been challenged on the Topix site about Mayoral, Slum Lord, Tax Liens, Employee taxes, bldg permits, or other topix issues written about here. Why? Because most of the people and their circle of friends know it's true and if the push the envelope, they will open up Pandora's box.

Usually, someone get's upset that the truth is out and they send a B.S. statement to topix and get it removed. Funny thing is, it appears again in a different way.

So... if this is your attitude about how life as a public official, whether elected, volunteer, or paid by taxpayers funds, then great. But most would believe that you are accountable regardless of where you are in that position.

You missed the point. I am not making personal attacks.

You and others need a lecture on behavior on this site.

Hmmmmm...

Am I supposed to be offended that you called me a "girl"?

I never defended Clinton and his antics. I said he was fair game.

The conspiracy theories here have rumor and not facts attached. I don't think there are that manny on your side. I think there are some that come on here with various names to make a rumor grow.

Too bad they aren't conspiracies. They are the truth. Why? Because you would have refuted it.
But instead you want to hide behind a personal life wall.

So, prove to me that the mayor didn't lie about graduating in May of 2011. When he was asked about it on Partyline, he simply stated "i didnt know it mattered".

When asked about his living situation, he lied about that. Why? His own neighbors admitted as much in addition to the neighbors of his so called rental home.

want me to go on with more truths and evidence?

Not really. I just think your life must be pretty boring to stalk the mayor about something so trivial. I am not refuting anything that silly.

Not stalking... wanting to know why a then potential candidate, and now mayor would want to deceive people over something that most wouldn't care about if he would have come clean instead of denying some of it and finally having to "own up" to it on radio with the crappy excuse he gave.

Again, you can't prove it because you think that stuff is "personal" and off limits. I don't. Deception is deception.

Again... prove me wrong. Otherwise, your keystrokes are just that... strokes

Funny, you want someone else to prove something when you can not prove your comments either.Your deception is worst because you are using it to slander. You talk on here like you are talking to children, foolish! Stroke the childre4n some more !! You are judged by the very fact you remain behind topix, an unknown. My belief is that it will remain that way!

That's all you got?

Another who won't offer up anything to refute above comments.

Most, but not all, people who post on here have intelligent things to say. You and others might not agree with them. It's everyone's prerogative to respond to those things, but to make the assumption you have posted would be wrong.

The rights we all have on here are "freedom of speech" and as Punjab has been known to say, "your bigotry is duly noted".
