The Libertarian

The Redder They Are, The Harder They Fall -

Sex scandals involving politicians are as old as Thomas Jefferson, but the outcome seems to depend on which party you represent. In recent years, for the most part, Democrats have been able to survive their sordid escapades while Republicans have paid with their political lives.


· The clearest illustration may be in the divergent outcomes of the cases against Crane (R) and Studds (D) in 1983. Both men were censured by the House for having sex with underage congressional pages -- Crane with a 17-year-old girl in 1980, Studds with a 17-year-old boy in 1973. Crane, of Illinois, apologized for his actions, while Studds, who declared he was gay, refused. Crane lost his reelection bid the next year; Studds, of Massachusetts, kept winning his seat until he retired in 1996.
A double standard? And if so, by whom?

Are you sure you're a libertarian? From the websites you keep linking to and the general slant of your posts, I'm getting the impression that you're more of a conserative/republican type. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but libertarians generally aren't so obsessed with sex and morality, they tend to focus more on property rights and individual freedom.

That article seemed to make clear that there's no real double standard, it's more that nobody likes a hypocrite. If you've spent your political career cultivating the votes of homophobes, it shouldn't be a surprise that those people aren't going to be very forgiving when they find out out that you're "one of them". If, on the other hand, you've always campaigned as a supporter of gay rights, it's not so surprising that your constituents will be a little more forgiving.

Likewise, if it comes out that you cheated on your wife, who's more likely to give you a second chance? The fundamentalists and evangelicals who think you're guilty of sin, or the secularists who think you're just guilty of being human?

This isn't rocket science :wink:.


Jones I was kinda surprised that libertarian and his 10 items made more of an impression then the alledged "realist" who posted about 100 items. Then again its kind of funny watching each side of this debate try to somehow prove that one side is more moral then the other.
