Anyone working for a public representative who displays this kind of horrendous public behavior should be immediately fired. He has no more credibility as an employee. Joe, distance yourself from this idiot.

"Anyone working for a public representative who displays this kind of horrendous public behavior should be immediately fired. He has no more credibility as an employee."

Zero tolerance for all.

Cops with DUI's or any violation at all should also be fired, as they have no more "credibility as an employee"?

Politicians that cheat or break a law should quit, instantly, without due process. Any of them?

Politicians with proven ethics violations should not run for other offices?

Zero tolerance. One strike.

I think ALMANAC made this story bigger because of his particular party affiliation during these election preps.

Newt was fined $300,000 for ethics violations as Speaker of the House and stripped of his position.

Ranch Gal - "...a public representative who displays this kind of horrendous public behavior should be immediately fired. He has no more credibility..."

Your position on disgraced Speaker Tiffany-plated-Newt, the lobbyist for Freddie Mac?

Ranch Gal?

He was just performing economic stimulus. Now a county work crew will have to spend hundreds of hours making and installing a new concrete cigarette receptacle.
