    No it doesn't. A person's personal life has nothing to do with their competency at their job.

    You simply choosing to ignore that really doesn't change anything
    You falsely charging it doesn't change the fact you're wrong. I've know a few different people I wouldn't trust with a lucky penny outside of work, but were very good at their job.

    How well he performs his job. Does he attempt to follow through on his promises. Is he active or just collecting a paycheck. Etc.

    The fact is a person's sexual desires have nothing to do with their ability to do their job. Besides that, we don't know what kind of a relationship he has with his wife. Maybe they are only married for political reasons. Maybe they have an open marriage and she doesn't care he's been doing these things. Maybe she wants them to be a dedicated couple and was horrified and embarrassed that he was doing these things. We don't know. But, more importantly, it's irrelevant to what kind of performance he has on the job.

    please read: " but the level of competency and constant lying in the process of dealing with that scandal certainly speaks to his potential to perform such a job"

    The part about "process of dealing with that scandal" suggests we are discussing how he attempted to deal with something publicly


    You falsely charging it doesn't change the fact you're wrong. I've know a few different people I wouldn't trust with a lucky penny outside of work, but were very good at their job.
    Do you trust them working with money? Because here confidence and trust are very important aspects of the job, Gordy

    And what he was dealing with publicly was his personal sex life. It did not involve his job. Like I said.

    I would. *shrug*

    Would I trust Weiner? I have no idea, like I said from the beginning, I don't know enough about him. But exposing his penis over the Internet does not mean he is not worthy of trust in matters related to his job.

    And his attempts to deal with it publicly came off as incompetent and buffoonish. So see, we are simply not dealing with his private life like you previously claimed

    It did not involve his job. Like I said.
    A big aspect of his job would be dealing with the public, who will need to trust him ...

    I would. *shrug*
    So you don't trust these people with money outside of work but will within the confines of work? Yeah, I'll just leave that as it is

    Would I trust Weiner? I have no idea, like I said from the beginning, I don't know enough about him. But exposing his penis over the Internet does not mean he is not worthy of trust in matters related to his job.
    right, which is why I mentioned things outside exposing his penis on the internet and that speak directly to his ability to perform his job. Amazing how that works, right?

    What are you talking about? That's all we're dealing with. If no one gave a rat's rear end about sex, it never would have been an issue. This situation/past situation is completely about his personal sex life, as was his response to it was about his sex life.

    I honestly don't know how else to say this before you understand EVERYTHING controversial about this situation is related to his personal sex life.

    A big aspect of his job would be dealing with the public, who will need to trust him ...
    And that trust should come from whether or not he is good at his job, not if he likes to show his penis to girls on the Internet.

    So you don't trust these people with money outside of work but will within the confines of work?
    Correct. People are not automated robots, they have different moods and even values depending on the situation they are in. A person who might cuss like a sailor in front of his friends wouldn't dare utter a four letter word around a child. A person who is a great risk taker on his own becomes a cautious driver when his wife is in the car. As situations change, people change. Trying to describe every aspect of a person based upon one aspect is silly.

    right, which is why I mentioned things outside exposing his penis on the internet and that speak directly to his ability to perform his job. Amazing how that works, right?
    No you didn't, you mentioned a situation which was directly related to exposing his penis on the Internet.

    Is he going to spend half his working time defending from alleged scandals? Even if the allegations are false, that's not good for the city.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yes, publicly ...

    What are you talking about?
    You know, the attempts to deal with the scandal in the media and with his constituents. Things like press conferences, press releases, statements to the public.


    That's all we're dealing with.
    No, there is a very clear public element to it.

    If no one gave a rat's rear end about sex, it never would have been an issue.
    Sending random women cock pics isn't simply sex, nor is it simply sexting.

    as was his response to it was about his sex life.
    You mean the response he addressed to the Public and that was presented in the public sphere? Right, so clearly we can draw from that his ability and integrity in dealing with the public

    I honestly don't know how else to say this before you understand EVERYTHING controversial about this situation is related to his personal sex life.
    Well, maybe you'll need to learn to live with the fact you are wrong? Being that his dealings with the public clearly raise various questions about his competency and integrity

    And that trust should come from whether or not he is good at his job, not if he likes to show his penis to girls on the Internet.
    I just outlined how his handling of the situation speaks to his ability to perform his job.

    Honestly any public figure who isn't smart enough to figure out that doing what he did is a bad idea is probably not the guy I want in office. I don't so much about him being faithful to his wife but the stupidity of doing something in such an obviously moronic way leads me to wonder about his intellectual capacity to perform his duties.

    Re: Weiner for mayor of your city?

    I'm OK with a flagrantly heterosexual horn dog for public office. Reminds me of myself in my youth. If you look at the various and sundry weasels we have in office, we have often done worse. I've never heard him say, "trust me." That's a good sign. His ol' lady likes him. That's a good sign. When the issue originally came up he publicly stated that "there might be more." That's a good sign. I hope he gets more ass than a public toilet and becomes a contented mayor.
