Will the public forgive Anthony Weiner? Public Religion Research Institute has a graphic that illustrates the public's attitudes towards officials caught in a sex scandal. I suspect that people, especially New Yorkers, are perfectly prepared to forgive Mr. Weiner. But, I am less sure that they are willing to let him become the public face of their city. Think of the jokes. Then again, Mark Sanford is back in Congress.
