Question of the day

Would you rather tell the unsavory truth about a well respected public official OR allow the person his/her privacy because he/she is doing a good job?

    Tell the truth. Always. Look at how many people think Obama is doing a great job, and don’t want things said about him.

    Conversely, someone with an impeccable reputation might have done something in history, but is doing nothing but good now. That unsavory bit of information likely won’t harm his reputation one bit.

    Depends what it is. If it has nothing to do with the job, then I don’t need to know.

    To Laura’s point, when GWB was running, they brought up a DUI from 25 years previous, and a lot of people voted based on the fact that they thought he’d had a “recent” DUI. So I would say, it needs to be relevant to the job, and the only reason to bring up really old or irrelevant stuff would be to prove someone is a liar or something like that.
