Each week we ask our Sherman Oaks Moms Council questions about parenting. This week, for a change of pace, we'd like to get our moms' opinions on the recent incidents involving powerful political figures linked to sex.
All of them involve married men. Dominique Strauss-Kahn and John Edwards are embroiled in court cases. New York Congressman Anthony Weiner is in hot water, although not accused of breaking any laws. And Arnold Schwarzenegger's situation is simply an embarrassment to all involved.
My question to the Sherman Oaks Moms, who are all married women, is this: Do you think that the prominence of the men played a role in these incidents? My own view is that sometimes people in positions of power think they are bulletproof, that they can get away with anything.
What's your view? Feel free to respond and tell us your views in the comments section of this site.
