    Analysis: Another sex scandal last thing DC needs

    By NANCY BENAC
    Associated Press Jul 27, 3:10 AM EDT

    WASHINGTON (AP) - There's been risque tickling. Raunchy twittering. Emailed photos. Stolen sex tapes. And more.

    (ap) - It's funny, a 2nd DemocRAT in a month Resigns because of Scandal, and the AP goes out of it's way to make it about Washington in general, and not the Party that's been hit twice in a month with Scandal... One Paragraph in and no Party Affiliation yet... Let's see how this plays out, because I Assure you, that when it's been REPUBLICans in the past, the AP leads in the Headline with Party Affiliation and then Repeats it in the body of the Story and makes damned Certain that you know how bad this Hurts the REPUBLICans, not DC... Let's go ahead and find out what the Spin is this time, shall we... - tha malcontent)

    Seems like sex scandals snagging Washington politicians are piling up faster than the federal debt.

    (Paragraph 2... Still about DC and Politicians in general. - tha malcontent)

    Now, in the latest episode of Washington's own unseemly take on "Sex and the City," Rep. David Wu of Oregon is resigning in response to allegations by an 18-year-old woman that she had an "unwanted sexual encounter" with the congressman, who is separated from his wife. Wu denied the charges.

    (I can't quite tell which Party "Rep. David Wu" is a member of... Why would the AP Neglect that in this Story?... - tha malcontent)

    Weiner had and probably still has an Indictment coming... Edwards... You excuse him back in the day?... Bet you did...

    And this is less about that and more about the AP and the Media's Coverage...

    When it's an (R), like back in 2006, it's going to Destroy the REPUBLICan Party...

    Now, when the President and his Party are Hurting, it's time to Spread the Scandal around when the DemocRATS get hit with (2) in a Row.

    You don't see this kind of Reporting when it's a REPUBLICan who's in a Scandal... You simply don't.

    *HUGS* ;)

    peace...

    I get a bit tired of posters in here - regardless of their party affiliation - using the broad brush to imply because a member of one party engaged in bad behavior it's emblematic of his/her party members in general.

    A certain percentage of people in our society are going to do things that range from stupid to unlawful regardless of how they lean politically. It's human nature, not a party's nature.

    I've said no such thing of either Party... My Complaint is Clear, when it's an(R) it's about the (R) who did it... When the (D)'s start getting hit with Scandal, it's a "DC" problem According to the AP that so Obviously Votes FOR the (D)'s...

    Get it?...

    :)

    peace...
