← Why Powerful People -- Many of Whom Take a Moral High Ground -- Don't Practice What They Preach

Can this really be news to anyone with a minimum amount of common sense?

Televangelists who fly around in private jets payed for by the credulous, preaching about the evils of adultery and homosexuality, and then found to be doing exactly what they preached against in seedy hotel rooms, (Jimmy Swaggart, Ted Haggard).

A conservative politician who extols "family values" and who gets elected on the promise of keeping government fiscally responsible, who also has the audacity to refuse federal stimulus money for his state, found to be spending public funds to buy first class plane fare and hotel accommodation in Argentina to rendezvous with his mistress.(Mark Sanford, Governor of South Carolina)

This study makes complete sense, but I'm never surprised.
