Senator Max Bacchus, oops I mean Baucus, has been caught with his pants down again. It now comes out that he gave nearly a $14,000 pay raise to a female staffer in 2008, at the time he was becoming romantically involved with her, and later that year took her on a taxpayer-funded trip to Southeast Asia and the Middle East.
Once again, I submit that this scoundrel is unfit for office and should resign immediately. Those who compromise themselves by even giving the appearance of impropriety are unfit to serve. If we are not going to expect reasonable moral behavior and high integrity from our leadership, how can we expect our nation to survive?
