Re: Alabama Gov Bentley's Alleged Affair ended his 50 year marriage

Even if he could run, I don't he would win. My sister (who is very progressive) had a very long discussion about "conservation" vs "progressive" reaction to a public official adultery. We agreed both sides reacted the same on a personal level. The big difference is a lot of progressive see the public life separate from the person in these cases. I don't know of many cases where a conservative managed to come back from adultery and win reelection. The only one I know of off hand is the senator from LA.

Gingerich never had a chance. As to Trump, most of his supporters are just so pissed at the lack of response to several basic issues freely admit they are "selling ther souls". Of the ones I spoke to they view Trump as the worst choice followed closely by Cruz. So will they actually show up in Nov and vote, I don't know I suspect not. Personally I think the likely hood of him keeping his word if elected is about the same as Bill Clinton's on how he was going to shut down trade with China.

If the governor were a Lib he could have an affair with a baboon and none of his constituents would care.

Can you imagine throwing away a 50 year marriage because your spouse cheated? Heartbreaking for the gov's wife.

You're probably right. She should tape a three way or a train and have it leaked to the public instead. That would put him in his place and help her feel better about the marriage. what the ...

Update:

Alabama governor halts impeachment, not disparaging report | The Charlotte Observer

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

What's the issue?

The man can put out public statements with a bible held aloft like a lightening rod..

Still has to go home where it's b*llsh*t free and face the hard cold reality he now lives in.

A fate worse than hell.
