Here in D.C. it seems to be vox populi that many senators and congressmen sleep around with their interns and assistants. It even seems to be a requirement for the job. I am sometimes suprised how can society be so hypocrite and pretend that that does not exist and that it is something reserved for less 'developed' countries.

The case of Ms. Cutler is pretty well known. She actually leveraged a lot on this 'norm' and even published a book on it. I disagree with her tactics and making what should be private public but some friends tell me that if a true investigation was launched on who is sleeping with who, many representatives on the Hill would be caught with their hands dirty.

I guess it's what power does to you.

Er, this happens by some people around here on a daily basis almost. You only need to read some threads in Lem Stand to see this. And lets not even mention the journals.


But anyway. This is fascinating. Did Clinton wish for his exploits with Monica to remain private? Yes, I'd say so. I cant even begin to comment on how it seems some in America seem very intent on spreading details their personal and sex lives to an equally willing audience. This is wrong for all involved.

Power doesn't corrupt, the corrupt are simply drawn to it like vermin to rotting flesh.

Yes, I know that

I don't understand why that seems to be deemed accceptable sometimes whereas other stuff isn't, but what do I know

I just do my best to ignore it

Sorry Mrs S, that wasn't intended to sound that way toward you. It puzzles me that a few of our members even do this. I was talking about that in response to what you said, but not to you, specifically, to talk down to you as it sounded. Sorry!

^And as a PS, lol. I agree. It is rather annoying and somewhat stomach turning to read or hear about it. No matter by whom or how often.
But people will be exhibitionists!

That's OK, I understand but thanks for saying that anyway

I don't, either. Hell, I don't understand why people feel a need to broadcast the details offline. What you do in your bedroom with your loved one is your business, not mine. I personally would never dream of broadcasting anything like that to the world-not only is it nobody else's business, but, as this story shows, it could really come back to bite me in the butt later. So I'd just prefer to avoid that at all costs.

But, if someone does want to broadcast that stuff, that's up to them .

As Dread correctly points out, Clinton's troubles stemmed from his lying.

The issue remains: should there be a cause of action for publically revealing a sexual relationship by one of the participants without the consent of the other?


taking your point about expectations of privacy regarding personal behavior, can we not argue that asking someone intimate details about their sex lives constitutes a perjury trap?

And, yet, what did sex with an intern have anything to do with investigating a real estate scandal that was ultimately dismissed as false?

Or was it really a politically-motivated investigation about humiliating a sitting president?

I'm sorry but this is really a naive thing to say. Power does corrupt, if you are given power to lead the people sometimes you feel like your invincible and indestructable and that no matter what you do, you can do no wrong.

A lot of men (and women) have fallen by the wayside after they have abused their power, even though they may have had the greatest intentions when they started.

Excuse me to chime in, I am totally your opinion here, but frankly, this post surprises me, your Honor.

You, like many Americans, defend free speech for Klansmen, Robertsons, and NeoNazis, but at the same time you campaign for an "offense for violating this expectation of privacy"?

Wow.
