- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING

So, this is strange behavior for a manly Navy Seal. Although Eric’s fellow former Navy Seal, Jesse “The Body” Ventura wore a feather boa so maybe I’m behind the times with these things.
Eric has been accused and admits the dalliance that lasted months. But apparently, it was said that Eric tried to blackmail his lover that admitted their forbidden pleasures were consensual, by taking a picture of her in some lewd state. He then allegedly told her to keep quiet or else he would release the said photo.
Eric, of course, denies that he took a naughty picture or tried to blackmail anyone, and this is where it gets interesting.
Around the time Eric was indulging in the forbidden fruits of adultery, the Netflix show, House of Cards, had an episode in which Frank Underwood took a bunch of pics of a young lady he was having sex with in order to use as blackmail so she wouldn’t blab about their nefarious activities.
I’m not saying Eric was imitating the actions of Frank Underwood. I’m just saying and a lot of people may be saying stuff. But indeed life imitates art.
It pains me that a fellow Republican, a member of the party that’s the guardian of public morals should stoop to such sinful behavior.
In Eric’s defense at least he didn’t choose masturbation over adultery as that is a big sin and far more embarrassing if caught. His political career would be over as nobody would dare shake his hand after thinking about what it was shaking.
At least Eric has a chance to keep his political career going. We Republicans can forgive adultery among Republicans as long as adulterers promise to cut taxes and regulations other than the Ten Commandments. We’re good with the Ten Commandments.
The Bible has plenty of loopholes and we have most of the preachers on our side so we can ignore the inconvenient commandments, as Eric Greitens demonstrates.
