Politicians should be accountable for actions

It's amazing that politicians like Anthony Weiner believe they can act inappropriately or illegally and then apologize and then think that is the end of it.

Weiner apologized before, then continued to do the same thing. He seems amazed that people are still holding him accountable for his actions.

Just because he says he is sorry does not mean people are obligated to accept his apology.

In past times, people believed politicians should be held to a higher standard. I would just like to see them held to the same standards as ordinary people.
