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.
