    Default What's enough sexual scandal to get a politician fired?

    In Finland, not much.

    Foreign Affairs Minister fired over sexual text messages.

    No, he didn't want gay bondage sex or text minors with dirty stuff, he basically just made the mistake of SMSing naughtily from his work phone with some fame-hungry bimbo who gave the messages to a gossip rag called Hymy (Smile).

    The messages were not even overt in their tone! The "naughtiest" was one where he said something like, "Have you ever done 'it' in an exciting place?". A lot of the messages scream out "OLD MAN!!!!" but that's about as big as the crime gets.

    I'm so WTF'ed by this. Not that I thought the man was great or anything, but seriously -- firing him, for this?! Okay, he's an idiot because he's had a similar thing before and sure, he shouldn't have used his work phone for his horny outbursts of dirty old man-dom but still. It's not even as though he was harrassing her, as it doesn't seem like she texted him back saying "Uhh leave me alone!".

    But Finns kicked up a fuss and here's the result.
    and no wonder hearts and minds have been won

    Hahahahahahahaha! "Dirty old man-dom."

    Yea. In the U.S. it takes a loooooooooooooooooooooooot of sexual mishaps (lol) to get fired from any political office.

    You may not have noticed, but the situation with French politicians is pretty loose. It gives a lot of leeway for politicians to do whatever they want, like found entire other families on the side (Miterrand) or hog up the tabloids for months about your painful divorce and then immediately get remarried (Sarkozy).

    The Finn? Yeah I always forget he has one because I think of him as just this old dirty man.

    But it was basically just dirty flirting with some exotic dancer. Okay, there were over 200 messages, apparently, but I don't know. Still feels so ...small a thing.

    I don't know. I haven't read the link. I was just guessing. :d

    In this case, I would fire him too.

    It's because he got caught, I think.

    That's a really stupid reason to fire a politician. He wasn't doing anything illegal, it seems, just stupid. that has no effect on his political ability or outcome.

    Texting hoochies from a work phone.. I dunno, I guess it's just the outrage it caused in people. Honestly, I think it's an over-reaction but I think he should've damn well known better. I mean, this: http://bellemont.blogspot.com/2007/1...tukiainen.html

    .. is the classy young lady he texted with. And like I said, this is his SECOND time being caught texting some 20 year old woman trying to get her 15 seconds of fame. Some men just think with their cocks, I guess.
