Chicago Tribune:Photos: Biggest Sex Scandals in Politics

Really, Chicago Tribune?
I have a picture of Herman Cain too--does that make me part of a "sex scandal"? (No Jesse Jr in the line-up? No Bill Clinton?)

Front page story on sexual harassment, that's fine, thought I don't remember John Edwards getting as much play for his betrayal and lie after lie. I do not doubt or downplay the existence and hurt of sexual harassment, or worse. But those who use it for political gain trivialize and hurt the cause of women who suffer genuine threats.

P.S. Herman Cain will not address charges unless in a group of people accused by Karen Kraushaar

But three former supervisors say the allegations, which did not include a sexual harassment claim, were investigated and treated seriously. Two former supervisors say she initially demanded a settlement of thousands of dollars, a promotion on the federal pay scale, reinstated leave time and a one-year fellowship to Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. The promotion itself would have increased her annual salary between $12,000 and $16,000, according to salary tables in 2002 from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
