Craigslist Congressman

What's really going on? Nobody can be that dumb! Did he want to be a divorced lobbyist and this is the most direct route to that goal? Actually this is old news by now, as I archived this blog for later editing, but the real issue simply has to be addressed. Are our representatives so out of touch with reality that they haven't heard of the all the potential dangers or fall out of Craigslist? I mean, a year or so ago, some med student killed himself after being arrested for the murder of a massage therapist he contacted through Craigslist. Are our lawmakers unaware of these type of headlines? Undoubtedly what this Congressman did was smarmy, underhanded, dishonest, and several other disgusting adjectives and adverbs, but the sheer immensity of his predicament continues to baffle me. I don't wish to sound like Glenn Beck, hammering something until everyone has a migraine, but there is a piece missing in this situation that I want to understand. What about that picture without his shirt? Why post his clearly recognizable face? And why not claim a hacking or a set up? This is simply not conservative American politics at its finest! After all this, he's sorry he's let his wife and child down and sorry he's disappointed constituents, and now that he's resigned he'd like privacy to work this out. Nonsense! This is utter nonsense and I want answers. I have some unanswered questions that I would like addressed by someone. Didn't he have at least one Congressional aid? As a Congressman, did he not know the potential of advertising on Craigslist? And if he didn't, how many of the rest of them on Capitol Hill have no clue what day it is and how much a loaf of bread costs? I have to say, as far as keeping abreast of what's going on in the world. I couldn't tell you what the latest styles are and I can't tell you the latest price of furniture or what the most popular reality show is, but I can tell you how to post on Craigslist and I can tell you I've gotten responses from as far away as Hawaii, on a piece of ground I advertised. I've gotten calls from over 60 miles away on goats I've advertised for sale. I'm not as worldly wise as our Congress people claim to be and I'm certainly not upscale in my lifestyle, but I know Craigslist makes public, anything that's posted. So Mr. Congressman, what is really going on, that we have this to chew on? Or is it even bigger and you simply were the sacrifice for even bigger deals, behind the scenes?
