Is Adams' relationship with Breedlove even news? Or a scandal? If Breedlove was indeed 18 at the time, it this just a case of "older gent-younger fella" romance, or a violation of an ethical standard we hold our politicians to? And before you reach your conclusion, ask yourself whether you're treating Adams any differently because he's gay.

My hopes, dreams and aspirations for Sam Adams were big. He was someone to look up to and was always very personable and an easy guy to like. That's all changed now. He now has the task of earning back my trust.
