Standing by your man
(l-r top: Former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer & Silda Spitzer; former President Bill Clinton & Sen. Hillary Clinton)
(l-r bottom: former Idaho Senator Larry Craig and Suzanne Craig; former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey & Dina Matos McGreevey)
As the Spitzer prostitution scandal continues to unfold, lots of articles are being generated about the lives of the former New York Governor and his wife, and of course about previous scandals involving political figures.
I came across this article on why the wives of these prominent men stand by them in times of scandal and I started to wonder if the same thing would happen here in Barbados. I know that embattled Vincentian PM Ralph Gonsalves' wife was by his side recently at a press conference about rape allegations made against him, but I wonder if a Bajan bigwig were to run into trouble if wifey would represent her man or kick him to the curb.
Anyhoo, if this US investigation I heard about into prostituion rings in Barbados really gets going, we may soon find out....
Have a good weekend!
