The Stupid Continues —– And A Lesson For The Ladies

image

Nebraska Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy resigned abruptly Saturday in a scandal involving thousands of calls to four women on his state-issued cellphone, including one woman who said she had a romantic relationship with the politician.  ……

Sheehy resigned after questions were raised about the cellphone calls with four women, none of whom were his wife, who filed for divorce last year. The calls, made over the last four years, were first reported by the Omaha World-Herald, which had made a public records request for Sheehy’s phone records.

Well, it isn’t shocking considering how little relevance the public places on morality these days.  I suppose I could go on a rant about how Clinton set a standard so low that anything would be acceptable these days, but, it isn’t Clinton’s fault.  It’s ours.  We accept this behavior from our leaders.  We no longer demand high personal character from our leaders, or even ourselves.  So, people like Lt. Gov. Sheehy thinks it’s acceptable to behave in such a manner.  He’s only resigning because his stupidity brought his poor character to the forefront. 

Here is the part of the article I like the best…….

One woman he frequently called, Dr. Theresa Hatcher of Bellevue, told The Associated Press that she and Sheehy had maintained a long-term relationship after they met at a convention of emergency responders in Texas in 2008. As lieutenant governor, Sheehy leads the state’s emergency management efforts, and Hatcher is an emergency room doctor.

“I thought I was the only one,” she said. “Apparently, I was grossly mistaken.”

Yes, proof positive that educational achievement is in no way indicative of intelligence.  She thought she was the only one what?  She was doing a married man! 

Ladies, if the man will cheat on his wife, he’ll cheat on you, as well.  If he cheats with you, then it demonstrates he has no moral compunction about cheating. 

But, why should the public care where this man puts his pecker? 

For the same reason Dr. Hatcher should have known not to get involved with a scoundrel.  This is also a lesson for the populace.  If a man demonstrates no loyalty and poor personal conduct, then there is no expectation that he would conduct himself otherwise in any other circumstances.  If he’s going to lie, cheat, and steal from his family, supposedly his loved ones, then he’s even more apt to do so to total strangers, such as the public is.  He may have the best of abilities, but, there’s no reason to believe he would act in the best interests of others, which, our politicians and leaders are suppose to do.

    “I thought I was the only one,” she said. “Apparently, I was grossly mistaken.”

    She added: “Politicians can lie. Doctors don’t lie.”

    SELL THAT TO SOMEONE ELSE:

    Last July, Sheehy’s wife, Connie Sheehy, filed for divorce after nearly 29 years of marriage. Her divorce filing stated the “marriage of the parties is irretrievably broken.”

      Exactly. I don’t know how a person like that justifies their actions. Does she think she’s a paragon of virtue?

        I can assure you – She KNOWS exactly what she is! She just wants us to think that because she’s a medical practitioner, she is virtuous.

        NOTICE HER APPEAL TO AUTHORITY:
        Politicians lie
        Doctors above lying.

        She KNEW he was married at the time of their startup romance in 2008.

    Sidenote: Charlemagne had five wifes. Which was normal for a king in those days. He converted to Christianity and made Christianity the religion in his empire. The church didn’t object to his polygamy.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monogamy_in_Christianity

    “In the 16th century there was a Christian re-examination of plural marriages. The founder of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther wrote: “I confess that I cannot forbid a person to marry several wives, for it does not contradict the Scripture. If a man wishes to marry more than one wife he should be asked whether he is satisfied in his conscience that he may do so in accordance with the word of God. In such a case the civil authority has nothing to do in the matter.””

    I assume this fellow was reasonably paid, why couldn’t he just buy his own phone.
