Poor Judgment

A married woman in Virginia put her sex life on the Internet - a lawful if extreme behavior - and made money doing so. Then she ran for the state legislature and lost. People don't necessarily admire or approve of all lawful behavior.

The fact of her on-line sex activity became an issue in the campaign. Presumably she believed it would either be an asset or an irrelevancy. She now believes it was neither and claims her privacy was invaded. 

Would you trust her judgment? Material on the Internet is like things on a billboard by a busy highway, there for all to see. 

If a person has some life aspect they'd rather not be publicized, at a minimum they should not put it on-line or facilitate others doing so. And if you've done so, running for office when opposition research is the norm is a bad idea.
