    The theme in my previous post was not intended to convey that dirty politics is OK. My point is that trump voters think what Moore had done is acceptable, and those who are on left the do not. trump voters appear to accept that kind of behavior in their candidates, the left does not, and the left does not find it acceptable in their favorite journalists either.

    I hope I wasn't coming across as accusing of wanting dirty politics. It definitely wasn't my intention.

    I agree how crazy and unfortunate it is that Donald supporters are more than willing to vote for a pedophile simply because the pedophile is a Republican. If the shoe was on the other foot and Democratic nominee Doug Jones was accused of being a serial pedophile then the right would be up in arms calling for his head.

    It just goes to show how party is more important than anything else for Republicans. They are willing to overlook any and every character fault and even overlook the fact that someone they are voting for is a pedophile because that pedophile is still better than a Democrat.

    The latest sexual relationship by a member of Congress concerns Rep Joe Barton (Republican) of Texas who took a nude selfie of himself and sent it to his mistress. Barton is said to write in the accompanying text: "I want u soo bad. Right now. Deep and hard". Ha.

    Barton has apologized for what he said was a consensual relationship between two adults when he was separated from his wife. If it was only that, we might say, okay he is an adult and no harm done to the American public. But it didn't end there. The Washington Post listened to a tape of a phone call received by his mistress from Barton in which Barton is threatening his mistress with the "Capitol Police" if she shared the photo and other recordings of their sexual relationship.

    It's hard to tell if the mistress had also originally issued threats resulting in the photo being shared, but Barton must feel betrayed. In any case, maybe nothing would have come of it (no crime) except that his mistress has him on tape threatening her. I expect at some point the whole world will get to hear that tape as well as size up Barton in his nude photo. Ha. Pun intended.

    Stuff right out of a spying movie, The Conversation-Gene Hackman, well, almost.

    Many of these allegations of sexual assault from women have come out many years after they occurred, what punishment, other than degrading an offenders name and stature could they receive? The only crime that does not have a statute of limitations is murder.

    Is castration considered capital punishment?

    As I have heard, at least one woman has a lawsuit pending against him, if so, I would be watching for an out of court monetary settlement, like most wealthy men would do, like Bill O'Really.

    It was merely to use the term nasty boys which seems to describe the current wave of persons without proper discretion or decency.

    On one of sunday political shows, a guest described the problem as good men and women tolerating unacceptable behavior in men who they held in very high regard such as Charlie Rose, Al Franken, Garrison Keillor, and so on. Their unacceptable behavior was known within their inner circle, and sometimes even within their organization or industry. The guest said the problem will remain until good people who work along side these men stop tolerating sexual harassment as being a personality quirk or odd obsession.

    You can do better than that. How about morals, or how about what they were taught as youngsters as in right from wrong, this country is going over a cliff.

    I was being flippant and snarky. Sometimes what reality serves is unbelievable and unacceptable. I personally am in favor of harsh harsh punishment and more scrutiny. Too many merely looked away and went on. A far lesser offense but still part of the overall problem.

    What's the phrase ? Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Hmmm.
