Dirty politicians

Last Friday there was a story on 20/20 about John Edwards. He has been indicted because he "allegedly" used campaign funds to cover up his affair with Rielle Hunter. I don't know how closely you follow politics/the lives of politicians, but John Edwards had an affair several years back, and he fathered a child with the woman he was having an affair with. The affair eventually came out into the light, and I remember watching an interview where John Edwards adamantly denied that the child in question was his. Well, the truth always has a way of coming out, and John Edwards is in fact the father of his mistress' child. (Did he really think he was fooling anyone?)

I'm getting so sick of wealthy, powerful men thinking that they are entitled to "having their cake and eating it too" just because they are "rich and famous." Whether you're a  politician, actor, sports figure, or just a "normal" person, it doesn't matter! If you're married, then you're MARRIED and should adopt a strict "hands-off" policy in regards to other people! I know that infidelity is not something that's exclusive to wealthy, powerful, "rich and famous" people, but those are the stories that you hear about on the news that make you shake your head and wonder what are they thinking?!

You know the sort of men I'm talking about… I like to call them losers because they do something stupid and end up losing a good thing. (So yes, I intentionally picked pictures where these men were photographed with their wives. Jesse lost Sandra and Tiger lost Elin, and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before Arnold loses Maria.)

Have you heard the latest news about Anthony Weiner? He's been a US representative since 1999, but last week he got caught up in a scandal when he allegedly sent an inappropriate picture to a female via Twitter. He adamantly denied sending the picture and said that his Twitter account had been hacked. The truth came out this afternoon and Anthony Weiner admitted that he lied, and did in fact send the inappropriate picture. He also admitted to having several inappropriate relationships over the internet with women before AND after his marriage. (He hasn't even been married a year.) I just feel badly for his wife since she just announced that she's expecting their first child. Another politician goes on the "loser" list.

Above is a picture of Anthony Weiner admitting the truth and giving his teary apology. This definitely isn't  someone that I want representing the country!
