The Haves & Have-Nots (Feedback)

by Randy Oates 2/10/2014 12:00 am

It is applicable to political scandals that don’t involve sex — Ernie Passailaigue, former director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, was twice measured on the Moritz Scale with nary a zipper problem — but sex certainly does seem to crop up regularly. And this installment’s subjects are currently involved in sex scandals.
