Sometimes a picture can tell lots of thousands of words. In the following picture Kevin Garns, the 55-year-old Republican Majority Leader for the Utah House of Representatives, has just confessed to climbing naked into a hot tub with a 15-year-old girl in the mid-1980s. She was his employee. He was married. He claims nothing happened. He paid her $150,000 in eight years to shut her up. Uh huh. That's $51.37 a day to keep her little mouth tight.

Mike Terry, Deseret News.
Surrounding Garn are his wife (ugly green dress) and nine other individuals, all busy clapping their hands and giving him a standing ovation.

Now if you or I were to climb naked into a hot tub with a teenager (not something I would ever be interested in doing, I like grown-up men), and announced this in front of a group of co-workers, do you think your co-workers would clap and carry on with hugs and condolences over that fucking nasty behavior? I am pretty sure that most of mine would shun me for being so pervy. But if you are a Mormon Republican White Male, a different set of rules apply.

Somewhat ironically, Garn was a member of the Utah House Ethics Committee.
