I worked intel for 20 years, and we had annual briefings about how to stay out of trouble by keeping your pants zipped. There is absolutely no excuse for any man or woman in power and under the public's trust to get caught in sexual peccadillos. Ditto financial problems. Ditto domestic issues. Ditto leaking secrets. Everyone from the lowliest of E-1s to the highest ranks in the military and the government knows better. People who think it shouldn't matter are people who are neither in power nor should be trusted with it.
