    The Weiner Effect - Trend setter or Just Democrats being Democrats?

    Apparently, former Rep Anthony Weiner is gone but not forgotten

    Another Lib Resigns After Sending Unwanted Nudies to Online Flame

    The New York Daily News reported:

    Garden State Democrat Louis Magazzu announced his resignation Tuesday after nude pictures he sent to a woman he had been corresponding with were posted on a Republican activist’s website.

    At least two of the photos showed the Cumberland County freeholder’s crotch, two showed him dressed to the nines in a suit, and a fifth showed him waist up without a shirt.

    The tawdry photos – taken in front of a mirror with a smartphone – are similar to those that led to Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens-Brooklyn) to call it quits in June.
    Magazzu, a 53-year-old lawyer who had been an elected county official for more than a decade, apologized to his friends, family and constituents in a statement, but indicated he had been set up.

    Was Chris Lee a Democrat? What about John Ensign?

    Sounds to me it's more like politicians being politicians.

    More like they are pretty even when it comes to sex scandals. The biggest difference in the two parties when it comes to sex scandals is in the hypocrisy.

    the Left and the MSM tend to hold the Left to lower standards

    More like the left doesn't think that private consenting adult behavior is anybody's business. The left doesn't run around preaching "family values" while banging their lobbyists.

    Yes... It's easier to bang lobbyists when you have no "family values"...

    Stupidity doesn't know parties. Although the dems seem to look away if its one of their own.
