Republican sex scandals outnumber Democrat sex scandals two to one

Pin it

…in the last decade, anyway. No surprise here: according to an NBC tally, the party of family values and general sanctimoniousness is pounding the Democrats in the sex-scandal Olympics. Of course, it's possible that Democrats are just better at getting away with this kind of thing. But it seems reasonable that making a big public show of outrage over other people's behavior could correlate with having some secret indiscretions of your own. After all, Newt Gingrich (one of the disgraced bunch on NBC's list) was notoriously cheating on his second wife even as he was loudly denouncing Bill Clinton for the Lewinsky affair. Conclusion: what a bunch of jackasses.
