    That is a fairly loose connection. I am sure that many folks have made mistakes in hiring help, including those that hired (unknown to them) pedophiles or child abusers to babysit their kids. That does not make hem bad people, just sad people. If you are asserting that this behavior was known and covered up, then that would be a story, but simply making the honest mistake of hiring one that had secret personal problems is not a big deal.

    Yep. It ranks right up there with the POTUS having an extramarital affair in the White House and then lying about it.

    Are you seriously comparing adultery equal to child pornography and pedophilia? Seriously??

    No. I am comparing the actual, personal, intentional moral failure (twice, once by adultery and next by lying about it) to that of guilt by association with the (unknown?) moral failure of another.

    Correct. A pedophile is not apt to share that kind of information about himself to others. I was surprized he is only 35 yrs old. When I saw Chief of Staff I just assumed he be 50 or older.

    But if he was distributing child porn it would be interested to see who he was sharing it with. Surely this was a major shock to Alexander.

    Not the same at all. POTUS was a situation of two consenting adults.

    I heard about this on the radio and I knew it would be used to blame all Republicans. I would have been disappointed if this thread hadn't been started.

    I in no way 'blamed' Republicans... just noticed that it was a Republican, and as yet the most heinous of sexual misconduct to date is with the party that tries to claim it's all family values crap. Noticing facts is not blaming. Calling it blaming serves what purpose to your cause here? Are you trying to defend this or deny the accuracy of anything I've typed?

    Oh my those family values Republicans are at it again. /sarcasm
    As much as I love to hate on Republicans you can't really blame anyone other than Loskarn and has nothing to do with political affiliation.

    I am not comparing the different nature of the moral lapses here, as was also assumed by another poster, I am pointing out the difference between an immoral act done by another "connected" person (Alexander Lamar did nothing at all - his employee did but not even at work or in front of the boss) and two immoral acts done by the actual person in question (Bill Clinton did commit adultery and lied about it).
