Anthony Weiner has confessed. The long national nightmare is over. He refused to resign, but the erect representative will likely endure a rough sex probe in the House.
But while Weiner is undoubtedly a lying creep with too much time on his hands (or perhaps with his hands), he’s not alone. Other politicians have done creepy sexual things, and this story goes beyond the tabloid trash that many in the media can’t get enough of.
This story is also about the arrogance of elected officials, who oftentimes see themselves as better than everyone else and free from the rule of law (or at least free from the restrictions of common sense).
