An Office for An Office

by on June 16, 2011

I’m sorry that Congressman Weiner resigned today because of, well, weiner problems. And pretty minor ones at that. But it may be a case of ‘I resign, you resign, we all resign.’ Not only were several Republicans with much worse sex scandals on their record encouraging Weiner to resign, several Democrats wanted a resignation as well.  However, if every elected official resigned because of errors in judgment, we’d have no elected officials left.  If the media seriously pursued this story about Anthony Weiner, I hope they seriously pursue the story about House Speaker Boehner.

Boehner has been involved in extramarital affairs with at least two women, according to a new report in the National Enquirer.

I agree with the author, Roger Shuler, that The Enquirer is not my first source of news. In fact, The Enquirer doesn’t even make my list of news sources at all. But they are excellent at revealing scandals. Unusually for ‘real’ news sources, The Enquirer also listed real facts with real names.

Will the same people who encouraged Weiner to resign encourage Boehner to leave office?
