AshleyMadison.com, a web site that bills itself as “the world’s leading married dating service for discreet encounters,” identified Washington, D.C. as the nation's most cheating city -- when it comes to marital affairs.

“With enormous public attention paid to political cheating scandals this year, including the Gen. Petraeus affair, there was no doubt that Washington residents would be influenced. Living in DC it’s crucial to keep up appearances and therefore adultery has become a way of life for many of the city’s most powerful residents,” said AshleyMadison.com Founder and CEO Noel Biderman.

It's official. Washington, D.C., is the number one city for cheaters. It's the second year in a row the nation's capital has earned the raunchy honor, according to AshleyMadison.com (a site that matches married people who want to have affairs.)

    If a politician will screw around on his mate, rest assured he will screw you the voter in some shape, form or fashion. Anyone who runs around on their mate can forget my vote.

    Bothers me because they usually loves to stick their noses into our lives and tell us what to do, what is moral and then they turn around and do the opposite to what they preach!

    If they can't be honest with the person they "love" and decided to marry, then how can we trust them to be honest with people they don't know and don't care about?

    Not my business. Nothing to say about one's personal life since it has nothing to do with the person's professional ethic.

    Damn tootin' I do. Politicians should set a reasonably decient example for
    everyone. And unless I'm either appethetic, stupid, or simply tripping, I've
    seen anything but a decient example from the majority of the lot.

    The only reason that Washington, D.C. is the nation's most cheating city is because that's where the politician's are. If they congregated in another city, that city would be the most cheating city.

    We need respectable and trust worthy people in the government, not scumbags who can't even stay true to their supposed loved one or at least be mature enough to call it off.

    Well, the thing is-- we only know about the affairs when a politician in caught. So, it probably happens more times than anyone would like. And that's sad. Furthermore, the validity of the press is often clouded as well.

    Not at all. The only thing that influences my vote is their voting record and their policies. If I wanted to vote for a "good person" I couldn't vote for a politician. It is exceedingly rare to have both.

    If it happens during the campaign it could be an embarrassing distraction, but I expect my president to be human, not a perfect saint or demigod, and I've already assumed that a candidate is lying to me. That doesn't mean he can't be an effective administrator. We've had several perfectly good--even great--presidents who cheated on their wives, sometimes repeatedly.
  • Thomas 2013/02/19 22:23:18
    it depends on if they lied to the law or if they lied to a news-person or if they just lied to their wife or their wife doesn't care if they only lied to their wife, who cares, let them and their families deal with it. But if they lied to the law they should b persecuted. Or if they had an afair like Anthony Weiner, or Mark Sandford, or John Edwards i wouldn't vote for em because they look like smiling jerks. I would vote for Bill Clinton, cause his wife doesn't care if he had an affair and technically he was telling the truth to the law

    Some only go into politics just so they can cheat. They know that some women just like power; ugly, fat, whatever. It doesn't matter as long as they have power.

    But only if it is with a subordinate, such as with Clinton. Affairs are private matters normally but when they involve a workplace subordinate they violate laws for harassment, tend to have subtle or unspoken threats, come with perceived future hiring/promotion benefits, etc, they are a clear violation of trust.

    If he is unfaithful in the personal life how can you trust him with Yours. At this present time who represents us in Congress more that they represent themselves. I assure you it is not many.

    The answer should should have a No choice. A politician, whether he be a state legislator, a mayor, govenor, senator, Congressman, or POTUS should not affect my vote and whether or not he'd be a good policitical leader.

    Having an extra marital affair does not make a person a bad politician. I am more interested in their policies than what they are doing in the bedroom, but as my hubby says, sex scandals are one of the few things that the average American voter understands, so that's why there is so much focus on them. It's true too. Try talking economics with many Americans, and they pretty much check out of the conversation immediately; numbers are hard to comprehend.

    Much more if they break laws in the process. But plenty of philanderers are plenty qualified for their political work despite their crappy behavior at home.

    I see cheating on your spouse, or significant other as a sign that all is not well in the ethical and moral foundation of the soul. If they think nothing of that, then they may well also cheat in areas that deeply concern us all; our taxes, our national security, etc.

    If they'll cheat the ones "dearest" to them, they won't have a problem cheating the ones who are not "nearest" to them.

    Not unless part of what they're preaching politically includes being faithful to their spouse. I get the "If he'll screw his wife over, why wouldn't he screw us over?" view, but at the same time I know several people who would cheat on their wives, but never on their jobs.

    Plain and simple if the wife or husband can not be trusted to keep a marriage vow { ie, oath } then there is no reason to expect them to uphold their oath of office.....
