World on Mark Souder

A little dated now-- at least in terms of the particular representative-- but eternal truths and concerns about the exercise of political power, adultery, accountability, the potential power of sexual sin, and so on.

Here's part of the intro to Emily Belz's article in World... more than a dozen emails to WORLD, [Souder] has offered an extraordinary look into the thinking and feeling of a principled legislator who violated his principles. "Politicians and any top professionals are skilled manipulators and smooth with words," he acknowledged: "Holding us accountable is hard." His emails reveal the agony of failure: "My sin, while forgiven, is greater in that God put me in a position of public trust, so I deserve whatever criticism I receive."
