Ex-Con, Future Congressman? Former Gov. Edwin Edwards Campaigns Again : NPR
I don't care about him running for office again. If the people want an ex-felon to represent them, it won't be the first time it's happened, probably won't be the last time. What really flips my brain is the 30 year wife of this 87 year old man, and their 1 year old son.
Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. And an 87 year old has no business being a father. Because he's guaranteeing that this child will spend most of his life without a father.
Yea, I know, there are plenty of one-parent families out there. Because some times things don't work out. But there is, or should be a difference between, the possibility of things not working out, and the highly likely certainty that an 87 year old will not live long enough to see his child through high-school.
