    Not  all readers of the Jewish Press will agree that it is desirable to make sure our politicians have clean underwear.
    That being said, in the last election cycle we saw Anthony Weiner’s  polling numbers take a nose dive after his several episodes were revealed.
    So the premise of the article is faulty. Many Orthodox Jews do not fault a candidate with a treif lifesyle that is not hurting anyone, but draw the line when the candidate appears to hurt his wife and lies to the electorate.
