"Weiner joins a disturbingly long line of public figures (Eliot Spitzer, John Ensign, Christopher Lee, Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Edwards, Mark Sanford, Bill Clinton and on and on) behaving badly in their private lives."
"The Weiner scandal, like those that have come before, highlight that in this age, when public figures send personal musings (and lewd images) from their official Twitter and email accounts, there really is very little separation between private transgressions and public and professional fallout.
