scruples

I've been watching the news and all the fuss they are making about this Weenie Guy who refuses to resign after admitting to engaging in sexting. The last I heard, some of his cohorts were calling for an investigation to see if he had broken any laws.

I realize none of us is perfect but it seems to me that our elected officials ought to be held to, and hold themselves to, higher standards simply because we have entrusted them to lead us. That also includes the responsibility to act as role models, and be examples of integrity and ethics.

Another thing they mentioned about these investigations was that it should be determined if there were ethics violations.

What seems incredible to me is that there should even be any question as to whether or not this guy should resign. I mean, if you have to even debate this, then either you really have no moral character or you work for the ACLU. That's why our country is headed down the toilet when it comes to morals and scruples and ethics and anything having to do with decency. Sorry, that's just the way it is.
