Have some backbone, the guy's a creep a deserves no one's respect. It's not being 'holier than thou' to judge a man for sending explicit text messages to young women while your wife is pregnant AND (this is a BIG 'AND') you are a sitting Senator - he then by the way, lied about it, apologized, resigned, and then got caught doing it again a year later. His senatorial office also had one of the biggest turnover rates in congress as his anger issues and a$$hole attitude towards his staff turned everyone off to him. But no, by all means, go ahead and defend him - tell me more about how you would want to do the same thing.
What he does in his personal life is his own business. I don't care if he sleeps with every girl that walks in front of him, it still has absolutely no bearing on how I view him as a politician. Again, he's a real a$$hole for doing what he did and incredibly stupid for doing it in a way that could bite him as it did, especially given his unfortunate name, but I still think that he is a very intelligent and passionate person when it comes to politics.
Another example is our prospect, Myles Bell, that was in trouble for the car accident that killed his gf. Does that make him stupid? Yes. Does that mean I don't want him on the team if he can be a useful player? No.
