Leaving behind the 'sex' part...which has a number of problems to it. My issues with the 'Sam Adam's Thing' comes down to a few basic points:
1) It is clear that Sam chooses Sam before everything else, and apparently has no boundries when Sam persue's Sam's issues...why should we we trust Sam to put the city first? (He hasn't so far) - He has shown he will throw anyone under the bus as long as Sam gets what he wants. The most recent example is Sam holding on to the Mayor's job, because "he" is SO important to the city....hummm...sound like Sam for Sam.
2) Sam being 'upset' at the 'distraction' again shows how Sam sees himself. IF the city can only depend on Sam, we are in far more trouble than anyone heretofor has mentioned.
3) Sam's willingness to lie, and coordinate additional lies from others to harm others so that Sam gets what Sam wants, means that anyone who disagrees with Sam must consider that Sam has no boundries to guide his actions...do we want all to be on that footing when dealing with Sam on the City's business. Do the end's justify the means???
4) I could care less whom Sam sleeps with...but apparently many do not hold that point of view. Thus, Sam's activites have impact on the City because some who we could use help from, simply will not work 'easily' with Sam.
5) Sam says he lied because people wouldn't beleive that he 'waited' until Mr. Breedlove was 18. Clearly, 'entertaining a 17 year old in a "romantic' way, at city hall, as he is running for Mayor (even if he hadn't announced) lead me to question his judgement.
He wanted to be Mayor in the 'worst' way. To take such a risk shows an amazing lack of judgement.
