Scum alert

Out of the Quora queue, and I really hope this is a troll:

My wife somehow knows about my affair and has threatened to tarnish my reputation especially when I plan to run for political office next year. How do I buy her silence and save my future?

You can’t afford it.

No political party is specified here, but I’m guessing this guy is a Republican, simply because Democrats in this day and age expect, not entirely without reason, that everyone will cover for them.

    It could be a Democrat if the OP is female and the affair is with a man.

    Bonus #LeftistAutophagy points if the man is a Trump supporter.

    The highest office-holder in the GOP has cheated on his wives countless times, and nobody in the party seems to care. So it’s not the best time to be wise-cracking about Democrats covering for each other, is it?

    And, about the Dems-as-gays crack? Oh yeah. Guess there aren’t any gay GOP office-holders. Subject for another time.

    Somehow this reminds me. I finally discovered VEEP. So funny.

    The crack was about a gay Democrat officeholder cheating heterosexually, Holly dear.
