The whole privacy of public officials issue is an important one to me, and I started preaching it here before I understood the blackmail aspect. I was hoping to get away with it, but you, being a smart person(liberals are smart by definition) caught me at it.
None of this changes my feelings on the privacy issue, but in this case, the blackmail kinda negates it to an extent.
since were on "full disclosure"....I will be forthcoming....
I've had 5 wives.......two of which were my own
Ill keep my guns, torah, bible, and money.....you can keep the change
Besides, given that the husband opted for blackmail rather than a beatdown, it seems he's ok with letting other men enjoy his woman, so long as they are willing to pay the rental fee.
Course, that is just my opinion on that subject. I think some one for whom marriage vows mean so little that they will break them to cheat is no better or worse than some one who does not respect those vows in others, if you follow what I am saying.
If a man wants to keep his woman, he needs to be taking steps to ensure no other man comes and takes her. If he doesn't, another man will come and take her.
The only person who's a total loser in this soap opera is the husband. Going back for hush money makes him a pimp, not a man.
