What is the last straw for you - - infidelity? stealing money? using campaign cash to hire your mistresses family members? taking bribes?What is the offense that should mean immediate resignation?

To be honest, I don't care about their personal lives. If they're cheating on their spouses that's none of my business and it doesn't mean they can't do their job well. To me it's when they break the law or break their oath. Anything beyond that doesn't matter to me.

It depend upon the conscience of that politicians. Even if they are offended many times if the court not justify the offense I think they should have the right to force that politicians to resign. But even in a single offense that politicians is committed when the court proves it. The court itself decide that the politicians must remove from office immediately and pay required damages. One of the offense that a politician must aware is that "betrayal of trust" this offense is immediate. Malversation of fund, corruptions and other kinds must be brought to court for trials.
