Is It Really Not the Sex But the Lying?

Some people are eager to make clear that they don’t care at all about a congressman exchanging sexual messages privately with other consenting adults, but they can’t abide the lying about it.

I have a test for those people. Suppose a congressman sent messages expressing enthusiasm for professional wrestling and lied about that. Would that be equally outrageous? It seems doubtful to me.

    Would he have a reason to lie about it? No, probably not. If he did I would think he was both a liar and an idiot.

    No, he lied because he was ashamed. I think having an affair is horrible, but between consenting adults I don’t particular care about his personal life. If he doesn’t have the good sense to keep it out of the public view then he should have the good sense to own up to it.
