We were outraged when we learned Arnold Schwarzenegger had a son with the household help and cringed when Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal produced graphic photos we wish we had never seen. More than 50% of you said you talked about either story or both with your friends this year. It was a year that made us ask questions such as is sexting unforgivable? Would we toss our partner out if he did what Weiner did? And in the case of Arnold, how would we handle such a revelation if we were in Maria's shoes?
And then, of course, the case of former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, first accused of sexual harassment and then the bombshell that led to his demise -- a woman claiming she had a 13-year affair with him. Said Iluvkrat, "If this is true, I really feel for his wife, especially after being married for 43 years." Said Ollie2008, "All along (the woman claiming the affair) is accepting money from this guy... and his (wife) doesn't know a thing about their 'friendship.' She is hardly a victim but rather a perpetrator along with Cain -- a selfish, selfish person."
