I have always been amazed at the way that politicians (who are ultimately my “bosses”) get off easy.
Why does your place at the top of the food chain give you more leeway than my place at the relative bottom?
It’s an old story:
In Washington, D.C. the mayor got caught on a sting doing coke. Re-elected.
In Los Angeles, a city councilman got caught with coke in his city desk. Sent to a program for “rehabilitation.”
And now the honorable governor of New York is entangled in what cops call a “whore caper.” He gets to resign.
If a street cop in any of these jurisdictions got caught in the same situations — fired on the spot.
I guess the more responsibility you have, then less responsible we expect you to be. Kinda sad.
