But they certainly are not alone. Remember Robert Wexler, the congressman from
that lived in Florida ? Though not reported, Harry Reid is allegedly involved in some legally bent real estate deals. Kendrick Meek, the democrat running for senator in Maryland has been called one of the most corrupt members in the Florida House. Florida
Then there’s republican governor Mark Sanford who took a week long tryst in
South America to meet up with his mistress. John Edwards had an affair with a woman while his wife battles cancer. Edwards’ running 2004 mate, John Kerry just got busted trying to dodge a half-million dollars in taxes.
Scandal plagues both parties and parties are comprised of human beings but the American public knows when they break the rules, there are consequences, when politicians do, an apology usually suffices. The double standard is why the American public do not trust politicians.
