Are you saying you don't know the reason for this?

Do you know why there is that law?
I think you know my view on politicians and the law. I think party politics should not be a factor, and if you break the law, you should be tried, convicted and punished, no matter what party or political philosophy you are.
Side not on that: I find it interesting how conservatives love to bring up Clinton, and yet today, with the accusation made by Ridge that Bush used Homeland Security to manipulate an election result, conservatives seem to have a kinda "meh" attitude, and yet this is much more serious(practically if not legally) than anything Clinton did.
I think it's morally bankrupt, and possibly a conflict of interest, but not worthy of of any type of mass investigation. An ombudsman can handle this.
2) Bosses sleeping with their subordinates:
A possible a conflict of interest, which can happen quite a bit in the workplace (ass kissers can get away with lot too). Is it wrong? Possibly, but not worthy of a mass investigation and litigation.
3) doctors sleeping with their patients:
Not sure in the US, but it's against the law here. The doctor would most likely lose his/her license.
4) lawyers diddling their clients:
I bet this happens lots, and I see nothing wrong with it if both are consenting.
What Clinton did was morally bankrupt, but it was nothing that broke any law. A multi-million dollar witch hunt was not necessary and did absolutely nothing but disrupt his Presidency.
