Unlike some Malaysian politicians, Gen. Petraeus resigned when his infidelity was found out

"After being married for 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair, such behaviour is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours."
Rtd US Army General Petraeus

Here is news on Retired US General Petraeus and now former Director of the CIA, apparently he had an extramarital affairs against his better judgement, was probably outed and good for him,  he decided to resign from public office:

CIA Director Petraeus resigns, admits extra-marital affair

For many of us here who always held up the religious high ground when we compare ourselves to the USA, now hear this, many of America's Politician and Civil Servants even Corporate Big Wigs when outed for infidelity or extra marital affairs will have the moral courage to resign or be fired from office.

Doesn't say much about our moral high ground, does it, if some of our so called Politicians who even when outed in authentic videos or photos refused to resign and what's worse their infidelity with prostitutes or other people's husbands/wives are even ignored by their peers and supporters. Sigh.
