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.
