The Virtual Political Sex Scandal

Rick Hertzberg: "Sex scandals are an increasingly prominent, increasingly frequent, and increasingly varied part of American political life. They come in all flavors and orientations. If what the protagonist of the latest one said during his remarkable press conference this afternoon is true, if it's essentially the whole story, then Weinergate breaks new ground: it's the first entirely virtual political sex scandal, the first to have been conducted entirely via e-mail, and online social media."
