A note to Senator Paul Stanley
OK, here's how it is: Neither I, nor anyone else, cares what Mackensie Morrison did before she was an intern, because this is not about HER behavior, it's about YOUR behavior.
As a Democrat, frankly, I could care less whether you resign or not, because your political career is finished regardless. It would be better for us for you to finish the term and let the brawl for your seat take place next August, when people would have to risk their State House seats to gain yours.
However, have you noticed that more tawdry things are being leaked about you every day? I have news for you, Senator, this will not stop until you resign. By the way, it's not coming from my side of the aisle, either, I would bet dollars to donuts that this is all coming from Goopers desperate to get the stench of your actions off of their party before things get even more out of control than they already are.
You are in an untenable position, sir, you have no way out other than the honorable one. (HEY! I meant RESIGNATION!) Do the right thing and go, or at least announce that you will not run for re-election. Of course, that may not satisfy many in your party, and anything else that might be in your closet will be aired for public consumption. The decision is yours, sir, and I don't envy you in the least.
Of course, I would hope I wouldn't have been hitting on any interns, either.
UPDATE: CA and WMC-TV5 say he's gone as of August 10. He's on with Ferguson right now at WREC 600.
