It's not the end, this has trampled our faith in elected officials once again. Our moral compass has not just tipped it has disappeared. What is our society saying to our children when we are continually slammed with unethical despicable behavior by those we are suppose to trust. How does his family ever rally from this. I hate to even read the news from day to day as there is always another story that we hear that takes our breath away and not in a good way.
