I don’t know what to say about all these sex scandals. Spitzer and then Patterson here in New York, McGreevey next door in New Jersey, and now the mayor of Detroit, and of course the granddaddy of them all - my old boss, Bill Clinton.
When that happened, so many of my White House friends were ready to condemn a man to whom they'd professed loyalty only a day before. But not me. Cause I don't like to judge. I was raised as a Christian and was always taught to judge not lest we be judged. And now, as a criminal defense attorney I presume folks innocent until proven guilty.
Even as a journalist, my job is to report the facts. Not to judge them. So here’s what I think. If public officials break the law for sex or for any other reason, then we should hold them accountable. But if the mayor, governor, or even the President has some problem in his life that is purely personal, it’s none of our business.
Like the man said; “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
