    Deseret News, this is what you get for cutting your newsroom staff, and posting articles from interns. You have egg on your face:

    1. Mark Sanford never resigned from office. In fact, he survived an attempt at impeachment, and served out his entire term as Governor. He didn’t run for re-election, but that isn’t resigning from office,” as this article indicates.
    2. Eliot Spitzer was never the Mayor of New York, he was a member of the US House of Representatives.
    3. Senator David Vitter was a sitting US Senator (not “state senator” as indicated here) and never resigned from office in 2010, as this list indicates.

    These are amateur mistakes. Ridiculous really.

    Mr. Wiener's candidacy was condemned by NY Democratic Gov. Cuomo for good reason. The disgraced congressman is combative, has a strange sense of morality, is far to the left of Stalin and does not represent what both sides of the isle hope to achieve in a political leader. Wiener would be bad for NYC, the Democratic party and any hope for civil political dialog in addressing today's problems. It is not a matter of "rehabilitation."
