Ha! Fight the forces who would unseat you for a mere sex scandal.
This only happens in the US -- nowhere else in the world. It is a
Puritan ultra-Conservatism only that allows it to succeed.

I'm going to tell you a true story, and I bring it to you first-hand
from none other than the United States Department of Energy National
Center for Computational Sciences and the IEEE Supercomputing Conference,

And I quote: "The on-line adult entertainment industry ['on-line porn'
- sic.] is the SINGLE LARGEST ECONOMIC FORCE driving /*investment*/ in
new Internet infrastructure (Bandwidth) and Compute Server Technology --
(the capacity to handle massive numbers of simultaneous on-line
transactions)."

Huge crowds at US porn convention

The LA Times San Fernando Edition ALWAYS reported glowingly on the Las
Vegas Adult Entertainment Expo.
When I lived there, the San Fernando Valley was known as the Porn
Capital of the World. We loved it. IT WAS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY!

If you don't welcome 3D on-line Pr0n (That's Geek-Porn)
Then you're all a bunch of fucking idiots.
And I make NO apology for my French!
