    The good thing about slow news travel, slow everything travel, was that Jefferson could hold tight for years before his political hitman takes a shot at him down the road.

    What's even more hilarious about this is that when Glenn Beck sat on Bill O'reilly's show eating a hot dog and laughing while they discussed Congressman Weiner someone posted, here, about how horrid Beck was for that and how terrible of a person he was for making fun of Weiner (eventhough he's like that to everyone when he's on O'reilly's show).

    Well - that's just damned funny if you ask me. Weiner really is a dick.

    That's actually not true.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    For this specific type of thing, whether a Congressman resigns or not is a personal matter. His constituents can call for his resignation, they can vote him out. There is a public embarrassment factor that will severely hurt his ability to be effective. I'm not sure that's a reason to resign, unless you can be replaced immediately.

    But I don't think there was anything criminal here. It's not against the law to lie or to lie to reporters. What he did was still wrong and immoral.

    Mark Foley resigned because his actions involved teenagers. And I think the FBI was involved.

    Larry Craig resigned but he was charged with a crime. I don't believe Craig ever admitted to being homosexual.

    You're not sure he should resign? His constituents are harmed by the very fact that as you say his ability to be effective is compromised. Which is why I also think that Giffords should step down.

    But I don't think there was anything criminal here. It's not against the law to lie or to lie to reporters. What he did was still wrong and immoral.
    Yes it was, and sleazy. Criminal? Well, that may be up to what he tells the FBI when they investigate. If he lies, and he is prone to do that, then it will be. Also, he may be in trouble for violating house rules. But that is a slap on the wrist.

    Mark Foley resigned because his actions involved teenagers. And I think the FBI was involved.
    Collage student in Seattle isn't far off. And the FBI is now involved in this matter as well.

    Larry Craig resigned but he was charged with a crime. I don't believe Craig ever admitted to being homosexual.
    Don't know or care, what is striking is that this waste of a person would stay in. We even have an example that not only closely mirrors this case, but from the same state as well, here:

    Congressman Chris Lee Resigns After Shirtless Photo Posted on Internet - ABC News

    Maybe with this comparison you can see why it is that Repubs have the notion that demo's are lying, no morals degenerates.

    Craig said he was going to resign then quickly changed his mind and stubbornly finished his term. Even his wife got up with him at a news conference supporting him which is beyond me how she would be seen with him in public.

    Of course he claims he was innocent and only picking up toilet paper off the floor of a public airport restroom. Which sounds legit as I know everytime I use a public restroom I feel the urge to crawl around on the floor picking up used toilet paper.

    The one thing in common with all these perps is the feeling that they are above the law and bullet proof. Just amazing how their minds work.

    What is it with northeastern liberals and their sexcapades?

    Elliott Spitzer, Chris Lee, Anthony Weiner, Barney Frank, Mayor Patterson........? Did all this start with the Kennedy boys?

    It's fascinating how the far-righties have a completely new version of the this story.

    Gee, I wonder where they get it???
