Weiner: Online Communications With Teen 'Neither Explicit Nor Indecent'

Saturday, June 11, 2011
By RANDALL CHASE, Associated Press

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, said Thursday he wished Weiner would resign "to get that story off the front page." He said the controversy distracts from pressing economic issues.
Two former Democratic Party chairmen also said he should resign.
Weiner did pick up support from U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel, a New York Democrat who was censured by the House last year for ethics violations.
Rangel suggested that other members of Congress had done things more immoral than Weiner.
Rangel said Weiner "wasn't going with prostitutes. He wasn't going out with little boys."

The Times has an article asking people if online communications count as cheating. Thoughts, people? I say if you're keeping it secret from your spouse, it is wrong.

Does that mean his wife would rather be married to a woman? If not, how would that affect their marriage?

Diapers, yes - but he wasn't going out with little boys. That, apparently, is Rangel's perversion yardstick.

The point is that Weiner broke no laws. Vitter clearly did by paying prostitutes. Of course none of that mattered to his hypocritical GOP colleagues who turned a blind eye......

Vitter's colleagues welcome his Senate return
Quote :
U.S. Sen. David Vitter returned to the Senate this morning, attending a committee hearing, but declined to comment on his alleged involvement with an escort service in Washington and prostitutes in New Orleans.
Vitter returned to the Senate today after a week of seclusion and scandal linking him to a Washington escort service.

When Vitter showed up for regular Tuesday party lunches, Republicans generally welcomed him.
Quote :
John Thune, R-S.D., echoed many in supporting the senator.

"Obviously, David has a lot of support here, and he's been through a lot. From what I can tell, he's dealt with it," he said. "So I think most people will be of a mind, 'Let's get on with it. Let's move forward.'"
As if Vitter was the victim Rolling Eyes

Quote :
"I am a great believer in redemption," said Orrin Hatch a Republican from Utah. "My attitude is he is doing everything he can to rectify the mistake he made, and he should be allowed to do that."
Quote :
None of the lawmakers would express a view about whether Vitter broke the law.

"I'm not an expert in prostitution law, I'm pleased to say," said Senator Susan Collins, Republican from Maine.

Even those who are experts on the law declined to wade into the politically charged territory. Hatch, the top ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee said, "That's not my area," when asked if he was concerned whether Vitter broke the law.

Senator Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and a former federal prosecutor, also declined to offer a legal opinion. "I don't know anything about it," Sessions said. "I don't know what the law is." When reporters pressed him on the question, he walked away silently.
Besides not being "experts" on laws against prostitution these clowns apparently also suffer from a lack of plain old common sense.

I'm neither defending Vitter nor condemning Weiner.
I'm ridiculing Rangel.

I don't see any reason for picking on an 80 year old, personally. He was probably just trying to express that old political maxim (paraphrased) that in politics, you should never get caught in bed "with a dead girl or a live boy."

Cut Rangel some slack, Jack...

OK, I will.
After all, he does draw the line at little boys, and that should count for something.
