Corruption Vs. Sexual misconduct
Personally, I think a corruption allegation is more serious than sexual misconduct allegations for politicians. They're elected to manage the country. As long as their private lives don't interfere with their duties, I don't mind.
Only when they abuse their position of authority to get sexual favors (which is the same as bribery) then that is wrong.
A politician shouldn't be a society's role model. Why must we hold them to such high moral standards? We elect them because we trust them to do a good job. They're not saints.
I think politicians make terrible moral role models. To make it as an elected representative, they would have made many compromises behind closed doors. What they are, we can only speculate.
