You are probably right, it may be a distraction until they find some more sexual allegations against POTUS or one of his cronies. If , in fact it is, then the media is privy to what is going on. I was rather surprised to see it get so much attention during my morning chow and early morning news.

Which makes me think it's nothing more than a distraction.

I can see that perspective clearly.

But there has been a more recent double standard on the Hill for how male lawmakers treat and carry themselves out in general with their staff versus what women are held accountable for. She has written this off as revenge porn and admitted to the first relationship.

But Al Franken was ran out of town for less and they collectively all need to hold themselves to a higher standard.

Affairs with subordinates, even 100% consensual ones are wrong and cause for resignation. I'm a-okay with her personal activities because adults shouldn't have to explain any of that, but not doing with those under her charge, especially when multiple parties are drawing a salary from the treasury.

Her affair with a staffer is no different than an Officer having an affair with an Enlisted person. Unethical and against UCMJ for us.
She was also smoking/using a Bong and the pictures were taken in 2017, when Marijuana was not legal in Cali, as of yet.
And Marriage is between a man and a woman acknowledged by their religion. With government and lawyers involved, people do end up losing allot due to a divorce, no matter the reason..

I agree. And if a person will violate that oath, it's safe to assume they will violate all of their other oaths. The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior.

We had an SES-1 banging a GS-15 who worked directly under him; so to speak. Her husband was also a direct report of the SES. While the affair was between them and the organization, the third and fourth order effects were felt throughout our section. It created a lot of problems with "who reports to who", which funding lines held which funds (the GS-15 was also our financial manager), and even went as far as policy changes because there was no longer an SES program manager to fend off other agencies and sections. :frown:

So she fucked somebody and smoked a bong. Jesus Christ. As much fucked up stuff as goes on in DC and we're talking about this? We're stepping over piles of elephant shit to investigate a report of fly shit in the pepper.

Silverbullet 28 October 2019 17:48

Did you read all the posts in this thread? She did more than that, including using campaign funds to pay the chick and continuing to pay her once elected, as a "consultant".

I could care less about her games with other dude or her husband, but this ain't about a dick and bong IMO.

Gsniper 28 October 2019 17:49

I'm not saying she's without blame. I'm just saying it's JV stuff compared to some of the crazy illegal/immoral stuff going on up there.

Low hanging fruit is still fruit. lol

Gsniper 28 October 2019 18:02

It IS a juicy story. Love triangle and all that mess.

Sacrificial lamb. They have to give the appearance that they are policing their own.

Dead on.

Yeah, I'm seeing firebreak/distraction from something else. Not to say don't take the freethrow, but keep the eyes on the scoreboard. S/F...Ken M

A holier than thou stand is gonna have some hurt in a short time.
And I can't wait.:biggrin:

Apparently the binary choice of all or nothing is popular here...

I'm not a fan of it.

She's a scumbag and now gone, which is cool with me.

It's a slow trickle, but I sense a draining of the swamp starting... Be nice if the floodgates burst wide open and all the corruption was brought to light all at once.

Always the optimist, you are...

You caught me on a good day... Give me a few minutes, and I'll be wanting that EMP asteroid strike again.

Where can we find one of these asteroids you speak of?

(edit: SB said something about low hanging fruit?)
