I don't see the Politicaloutsider Conservative lynch mob out for David Vitter, either. Why are you not calling for his resignation? Do you think tweeting your penis is worse than soliciting prostitution?
I think what Weiner did was honestly worse. I really do. Visiting a prostitute is looked at as morally wrong by many people. But I also think people understand that sex is our most primary drive, and that some have trouble containing it. He cheated on his wife. What Weiner
did is seen as more odd and even perverse. He used social media to send pictures of his wang
to multiple women. He had cybersex with multiple women. And then he conducted a campaign of premeditated lying. He lied to literally everyone: One-on-one interviews, public statements, former girlfriends, friends, supporters, other members of Congress...everyone. He did this for a week until the fact were such that he HAD to admit it.
Any public official who uses social friggin' media to send pictures of his wang, pictures in a towel, sex chat, etc...shows such incredibly poor judgment that he ought to literally have his head examined. And dude...he's been married a year to an attractive younger woman, yet at one point he's chatting with a 17 year old? What is wrong with this guy? I think what he did was far worse than Clinton as well, though I do believe Clinton was a womanizer with deep character flaws as well. But he basically gave evasive answers under oath, and made a single statement in public ("I did not have sex that woman, Monica Lewinsky"). And really...everyone knew Clinton was getting blowies long before he took office.
Oh, and he was married to Hillary..so hey, what would you do?
