Representative Weiner, Representative Lee, President Clinton, Another Men’s Club?

June 16, 2011 | Karin

Representative Weiner resigned after his lewd texting became public.  Representative Lee resigned after some pictures he sent to a woman (who was not his wife) became public.  We all know the related President Clinton story.  As more women are elected to higher office, I wonder if we will start to see the same type of scandals unfold.  Or is this an area where men and women act differently with power?

I ask our readers:  Do you know of any women who have been elected to office either in the U.S. or elsewhere who have resigned or been disgraced by such a scandal?  I am curious.
