If one can’t be trusted to be true to their spouse, how can they be expected to remain loyal to their country?
This is the question many ask when a politician is caught up in a scandal involving adultery. And there are plenty of instances where this happens.

On Jan. 16, there was an entire day dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr. This is February.
