Why should they?  If I wrote something, or did something, that reveals me
to be of low moral character, wouldn't you conclude that I was unfit for an
office of trust?  This is not even a matter of being paid to have one set
of opinions in public while holding another in private.

For the record, I don't think this is one of Russ's outright mistaken posts;
as he can tell you, I take considerable exception to plenty of them.
What it is, is *tacky*.
