No, I would not.  It would depend on how you discharged the duties of
the office.  What you say or do in your private life is your business.
Only if you let it spill over into the responsibilities owed to others
do I consider it an issue.

As a rule, I don't feel it is my place to pass moral judgements on others.
I also am a strong believer in innocence until proven guilt, free speech,
and Voltaire's contention.  I most certainly do not believe in pre-emptive
condemnation based on opinion.
