WEINER: Sex scandals embarrass us all

I am so tired of hearing about elected public servants who can’t keep their pants on. How can we teach our children that our government leaders should be respected, admired and perhaps considered role models when we elect jerks like Anthony Weiner, John Edwards, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Clinton? These men are an embarrassment for all Americans. After all, we picked ‘em.

Warning to my candidates: If any politician I vote for gets caught up in a sex scandal, I will be the first one in line to picket your office, force your resignation and perhaps start a class action lawsuit to get my share of my taxes back that pays your salary.

I will embarrass, disrespect and humiliate you like you have me.

I’m just sayin’.
