Married male congressman gets caught on security camera kissing a lady staffer of his, who is not his wife. Congressman says “I’ve asked them [his wife and kids] for forgiveness, and I’m asking forgiveness from my constituents who elected me to serve them.” This is fine, whatever, your marital problems don’t have anything to do with your work as a politician unless the voters say it does.
Here’s the problem: the lady the congressman was caught kissing has been fired (via). Why does one of these people get to beg forgiveness and keep his job, while the other one gets canned? Forget fairness, how does that even make logical sense?
BREAKING: McAllister is the victim of a conspiracy, according to his pastor, which just Makes Sense.
