We’ve had a rash of stories lately of male politicians behaving badly. in the last month we've heard sordid details on Arnold Schwarzenegger , John Edwards and now New York Representative Anthony Weiner. The scandal started breaking last week, when the New York Congressman says his twitter account was hacked and someone sent a nearly naked picture of him to a college student in Seattle. Monday, Weiner admitted he sent the photo himself. OSU Cascades political science professor Jim Foster isn't surprised. “There is a classic in the political science literature by a guy named Harold Lazlow called “Psycho Pathology in Politics”. And he makes basically, that argument, that because of the sort of narcissistic, outgoing, needy  personality that  lends people to go into politics,  it shouldn’t surprise any of us, when, as your say, they kind of behave badly, because they like the spotlight. They have room-sized egos and somehow that leads them to the position of thinking: “Maybe I can get away with it. Maybe the rules don’t apply to me.” Professor Foster says stories like this make it more challenging to get younger people involved in the political process.
