Vitters, illegally paid for sex is in the Senate.
Weiner legally texted photos to some chicks who were ok with the txt, and the right demands his resignation.
Whats wrong with this picture.
Fellow voters, when will we past our partician biases and be able to tell politicians "you're not consistent and we demand that, we're not idiots..."?
Will we always allow politicians to think we're stupid, and we have the memory of a head of cabbage?

When people lie to the gov they go to jial, so when a member of the congress LIES to the people he should go to jail too.
The same laws should apply to everyone.

He lied to the press.

Bad judgement! Is that what we want in a congressman?
#5 Jun 10, 2011
Yeah, should that apply to you?
I think it depends on if the person is lying under oath. Big deal if we ask Newt is he cheating on his wife, and he says no. I don't think that means he deserves jail. Lets get off our high horse.
If a politician goes on a talk show, and says a non-truth, you're suggestion a trial and jail?

Sorta like deciding to invade a country because Bush thought WMD were there. Bad judgement?
He's not your congressmen, so what do you care.
Vitter is Senator, and he did more than show bad judgment. He broke the law by illegally paying for sex.
Is that what we want in Senators? A criminal?
Doesn't seem to bother repubs. No one is demanding money given by Vitter should be given back.
Why is that.
As a matter of fact, the GOP just had a fund raiser for Vitter.
Like I said, we allow ourselves to be used by politicians. They may not remain consistent, but we should, and we should demand they do the same.
Instead, like sheep, we play their game.
They want you to complain about Weiner while forgetting Vitter, etc.
Typical politics. Don't be typical political sheep.

Bad judgement ... get them out of congress, nominally each vote there can impact every American.
Those who break the law ... prosecute.

ANY politician who lies to the public should be ran out of office.
And if they cannot be faithful to their spouse what makes anyone think they will be faithful in office.
Remember, if found out they could be blackmailed which is not good.

Exclusive: Weiner's Messages to Teenage Girl in Delaware Draw Police Attention
By Jana Winter
Published June 10, 2011
June 6, 2011: Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., addresses reporters to confess that he tweeted a bulging-underwear photo of himself to a young woman.
DEVELOPING: NEW CASTLE, Del.-- Police on Friday afternoon came to the home of a 17-year-old high school junior to ask her about direct online communications she has had with Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the girl's home around 4:30 p.m. and asked to speak with the girl's mother about the daughter's contact with Weiner. Another officer appeared at the home a short time later. A FoxNews.com reporter was at the home when the police arrived.

Anthony Weiner's communications with underage girl
Anthony Weiner’s communications with a 17 year-old girl from New Castle, Delware is under investigation, according to Fox News. The police went to the home of this teen to question her about direct online communications with Weiner.
This could put a big political roadblock in Weiners way, not to mention the possibilities of any criminal charges if texts were of sexual nature with this girl. The name of this girl is being held back because she is a minor, the police questioned this girl with her mother at home.
The young girl is a fan of Weiner’s politics after seeing him speak on a school trip to Washington on April 1. She signed up to follow his Twitter page, but then Weiner signed up to follow her and directly messaged the teen on April 13th. It is not clear how many direct messages went on between Weiner and the girl between or after those dates. The content of these messages are not known.
Direct messaging a 17 year-old girl is fine, if it had to do with politics, but chances are if the police were sent out on an investigation, there is something more to this than that.
