<quoted text>Sorry. I know lots of people very well. There aren't as many skeletons out there as you claim. It just seems that some people who run for office believe they have something special. Hubris, ego, selfcenteredness? Yeah, that's a start.
What GoUVA is trying to do is justify in his own mind the things he did/does wrong. And you are right, there are NOT as many skeletons as he thinks. It just makes him feel better about his skeletons to imagine that everyone else is as guilty as he is.
lots of stuff

Those of us who are old enough to look back forty years and see ourselves then know we are not the same people now as then. Having said that, anyone running for a public office had better have their ducks in a row for several reasons. When I vote I like to think that person is someone whom I can look to with respect and confidence to act on my behalf. Yes, we all have skeletons but I would hope an aspiring politician has some degree of humility when they consider themselves for a public office. I'm not sure this person does. I would also add that the above considerations is why I have given up voting. Show me a politician and I'll show you a crook. The age of a representative government is over, the signs are everywhere to see.

Listen Goodytwoshoes, there has never been a time when I got angry about a post until I read yours. You want to debate the issues with me on here that's fine. What she did 40 years ago was wrong but it was 40 years ago. Everybody has something in their past they would like to take back. Excuse me, everybody but you. I hope you are religious because God will take you straight to heaven without passing go. No need for you to ask forgiveness for your sins. You obviously never committed any.

Linda Wall's "long ago youthful mistake" in having sex with a junior high school student was child molestation, and she would be on the sex offender registry were she a male. It bothers me that she can chalk it off as a pot-laden indiscretion rather than the felony that it is.

<quoted text>Look...how many of your friends or even yourself had a relationship at the age of 18, 19 or 20+ with a person 16 or 15 years of age when you were coming up. You are still guilty of a crime if you did. People did and do some stupid things when they are young.
Do we hold things against people for what they did 40 years ago because if we did, many would not be employed in their positions today. Everyone, and I mean everyone has a skeleton in their closet. We are only human!
You seem to miss the point. Middle school kids aren't 15, or 16 years old. Most kids are 14 when they start high school. This lady, in her 20's, had a relationship with a 11,12,or 13 year old!
