    Denying any wrong doing!!! I do not think these words mean what I think they mean!!!!

    Stephen Byers was caught on film telling what he thought was an America Bussiness person that he could influence government for a price.


    Everytime I hear about this story, the commentry ends by saying "He denies any wrongdoing".


    What am I missing here. surely he has been caught red handed "doing wrong".

    He's claiming that, going by the letter of the law, he's done nothing wrong !

    You can always tell when a politicians lying, their lips move. . .

    He has offered a service, there is no crime in that. Hence he hasnt actually done anything wrong. If he had carried out what he said he could do, then he couldnt deny it.

    He offered to use his elected position to influence other politicians inorder to make money.

    He made it clear in the interview nobody should know about this. Why? I think because he knew and still knows that most people would see that as wrong.

    You seem to be saying that if you don't break the law (I believe he went against the spirit of the law even if he managed to technically stay within it) you are doing nothing wrong. Hope you don't have children if this is the moral code you would pass on to them for life.
