    Congress is immune and insulated from way too many regulations and standards of behavior.

    I don’t understand why we should care about consenting adults having sex however they want. Military, congress, the president. I don’t care. I’d rather that their personal lives not be put under the microscope so that we’re able to attract more candidates for the job besides people whose lives are so boring they will pass a morality litmus test.

    Back in the early 1900s, Sen. Reid Smoot, duly elected to represent Utah, was denied his seat by Congress because he was a practicing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, that is the Mormons. Congress refused to believe that a Mormon could be elected without a rigged election, and further subscribed to numerous conspiracy theories about the church.
    []
    The Smoot Hearings went on for a full three years, during which Congress tried everything it could think of to keep Smoot from taking his seat.
    []
    In the end, it was determined that Smoot was cleaner than most of the people who were sitting in Congress at the time. The little bit of dirt that they could find was found on other people, people who the church swiftly and certainly punished.
    []
    In response to this, one of the few Congressmen to be on Smoot’s side of the matter made the following observation:
    []
    “I’d rather a polygamist who doesn’t polyg than a monogamist who doesn’t monog.”

    Sadly, ask the average American about Reed Smoot and the best they’ll be able to come up with is his part in the Hawley-Smoot Tariff Act.
    []
    I have yet to see an American history textbook that mentions the Smoot Hearings or their impact on the American political landscape.

    Anyway, here’s the Wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoot_Hearings

    Internet joke someone sent me…
    US Medical School Entrance Exam

    When I was young I wanted to go to medical school, but I didn’t pass
    the entrance exam.

    One of the questions was “Rearrange the letters P N E S I
    to spell out an important part of human body that is more useful
    when erect.”

    Those who spelled SPINE became Doctors… The rest ended up in Congress

    Consent is consent. Power corrupts, right. Pedophiles in Congress have been Republicans, in the Church, they were named Haggard, not “father”. Sexual misconduct crosses so many lines, there don’t seem to be any. BUT, indeed when it comes to consenting adults, it should be nobodies business but to them and their families.

    Well, the Republicans have a new standard-bearer with the anti-abortion Congressman who had his ex-wife have 2 abortions, asked one of his patients, with whom he was sleeping, have another, and slept with yet more patients. And he just got re-elected and still has his medical license.
