I agree. The effect of a sex scandal is much less than say 30 years ago. Claustrum Oct 2020 #8

But seriously, if you have any ambition to ever run for office, just be extra careful with how you act. It's ridiculous to think you can get away with it in this day and age when everything is recorded online or on your phone.

Plus, the news broke on the same day Trump went to the hospital so it got very very little mention. He kind of got lucky on the timing of it.

Hopefully he will win anyways because we definitely need the senate.

Sexual assaults are a problem. Consenting relationships between adults are not.
