Sinner lawmakers: Go home

It appears that God and morals in the Kentucky statehouse are concepts only wound up between the hours of 10 a.m. and noon on Sunday. For the rest of the week, the rule is “if it feels good, do it,” and if you get caught, well, that’s what lawyers and money are for.

Any lawmaker who settles a sexual-harassment case is not suited to be a legislative representative. Pack up your bags because you have lost your moral right to be a representative or senator in Kentucky. Continuing to hang on to your seat is a very bad example to set for our youth because it communicates that the wages of sin are higher wages. These lawmakers should just go home if their spouses will still have them. If not, just go.
