From Arnold Schwarzenegger to Dominique Strauss-Kahn, we look at the sexual conduct of men in power.
From Arnold Schwarzenegger to Dominique Strauss-Kahn, we look at the sexual conduct of men in power. Birds do it, bees do it, and men in power do it, it appears - yet again - with extravagant abandon.
An avalanche of news this week about Arnold Schwarzenegger's affair, busted marriage, and child by a maid. Of disgraced former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn's alleged sexual assault on a hotel maid in New York.
And behind those headlines, years of reports of sexual license by each – and so many others. John Ensign, John Edwards, Elliott Spitzer, David Vitter, Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton – and on and on. Never mind Berlusconi.
This hour On Point: the sexual conduct of men in power.
