    i don't care who it is or what side of the political fence he sits on.

    he's a married man and he has a wife. how about just having common decency. stop betraying her trust like that. if he doesn't want to be with his wife anymore then tell her.

    i have no time for gutless cheaters.

    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    But it is very strange that, while both sides have their scandals, for some reason when it's a Republican, it always winds up being someone who has been loud about their anti-gay beliefs, and yet gets caught having/seeking gay sex. Why is that?
    Very simple explanation...Politicians say what the constituents in their district want to hear....If his district that elects him is against SSM he will say hes against ssm in public to get relected.

    He has children too. I'm sure his family will be strengthened by his trolling for gays on the internet.

    What you do speaks far louder than what you day.

    I could care less who or what he's banging. That's his business, his partner's business or both. But the moment you publicly pass judgement on others for their behavior and in essence make their sexual preferences "your business" to that end, you are then open to vilification. And in my view, justifiably so.

    This would only be hypocrisy if he is for banning homosexual sex all together. I think as a married man what he did was wrong, but sex scandals among politicians in either party is nothing new.

    I'm sure he wanted to ban SSM because he thinks gay sex is just GREAT!!

    Do you have any proof? Or are you just attacking someone because they have a R in front of their name? I don't know of any politicians who oppose SSM who also want to make homosexuality illegal. And even if you can find one, they are in an extremely tiny minority. If his stance on SSM is because he believes traditional one man and one woman marriage is defined as marriage, then really you have no case to make against him.
