Let’s hear no more about how Weiner and Wife are making Bill and Hillary look bad. Bill and Hillary were (and are) bad, and their unethical conduct cleared the path for the Weiners and the rest.
Weiner is a blight on the culture of the nation, and his wife is almost as ethically warped as he is. Moreover, she is the top aide of the woman many think will be the next President of the United States, and her unconscionable statements regarding her husband perfectly embody her boss’s ethics as well.
Only the people can insist on trustworthy leaders who enrich rather than degrade their positions and the system that grants them the privilege of power.

Ethics Alarms has a question for Alec Baldwin and the reported 56% of New Yorkers who say that sexting, lying Representative Anthony Weiner should not resign his position. What if he did THIS?
Rep. Weiner said that he did not intend to resign, that his disgraceful personal conduct did not change his dedication to the job he was elected to do or diminish his ability to do it. Does he have an obligation to resign, if he believes that? I don’t think he does, if he believes that. I don’t believe that, however; I think Congressman Weiner is deluded. He has an obligation to resign, and even if he did not, it would still be the most ethical thing to do.
If your ethics alarms are properly calibrated, here is what should feel fair and unfair to Congressman Weiner during his present travails.
