There was a time when anything less than professional conduct from a politician would be reasonable grounds to expect the politician to leave office, and would never be considered suitable for return. With the complete erosion of the rules surrounding the character of candidates, it would appear that now all is forgiven, once the candidate admits his or her blemish. This rule would appear to apply as a result of self admittance, or as a result of being caught red handed. Afterall, Premier Gordon Campbell is not a convicted felon for his impaired driving escapade in far off Hawaii, he simply made a mistake. . . an error in judgment. Equally, Svend Robinson is not a convicted lowly jewel thief, he was under teriffic stress when he took an expensive ring and stashed it in his pocket, and hid it away in his car. Let us be fair. These people are attempting to give something back. At the very least if the system did not allow their return, the system should provide for their entries into "Ripleys Believe It Or Not."
