Gross Outrage On My Modesty
“This constitutes a gross outrage on my modesty, a gross invasion of my privacy, and in particular the sanctity of my personal life,” she said.
Do you smell another by-election around the corner? CSL gracefully resigned from his cabinet and party posts after the widely-circulated DVD of his other nocturnal activity. Former NY Governor Spitzer vacated his seat after getting his hand caught in the cookie jar with a USD1000-an-hour 22-yr old "friend". If Wong had wanted to get out of dodge and avoid public scrutiny, why did she allow it to happen in the first place? Not very smart. She has yet to deny the photo shots. If this was taken from her private collection, only close associates have access, so go figure.
“The whole incident could be politically motivated,” said Kok, adding that there must be someone purposely circulating the photos. >> Did she figure this out on her own?
So, herein lies the question: Are we to accept capable (assuming their capabilities tremendously outweigh their short comings) leaders after their skeletons have been exposed? Or do we ignore their little human flaw and move on, dismissing the moral obligations that come with being a respectable elected leader?
She could follow Kok's foot steps and sue someone. Might as well make some money out of it.
