Previously discussed in light of Barbara Walter's admission,
journalist-politician trysts test the strains of each profession's
ethics. A particularly glaring example of this tension occurred last

Villaraigosa's infidelity, but also tainted the luster of the first
Latino-American to hold the title of L.A. Mayor. Salinas' actions add
another bow to the quiver of those aiming at the ivory tower of
Salinas, seen in red, is likely waiting for her "private sit-down."
