Niagara Times has learned that a piece is being worked on by a member of the media that will expose the significant philandering that has become part of the Albany culture. The story is said to focus on unseemly behavior by both Democrats and Republicans, as well as members of the State Assembly and State Senate.
But we have to wonder-is this the world we now live in? Is this what is now perceived as commonplace in a post-Spitzer and current Paterson world? Watching Fox News last week, they said that most people don't really care about extra-marital affairs.
But are our elected officials not held to a higher standard? Or when they screw up, is it simply sloughed off as them being human? This is not a gender issue, women are just as guilty as men, but in Albany, where the number of men greatly outweighs the number of women in office, it seems as if the men are the only ones getting busted.
Personally, I don't have any remorse for people who are caught doing things they shouldn't be doing. After all, they've made their bed, now they have to sleep in it.
