PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Mayor Sam Adams(Democrat, Oregon), who has admitted lying about a sexual relationship with a teenager, said Sunday that he would not resign.A city commissioner, Randy Leonard, told The Associated Press that Mr. Adams had left a phone message in the morning saying he had decided to remain in office.
Two other commissioners told The Oregonian of Portland that Mr. Adams, the city’s first openly gay mayor, had told them the same thing. The fourth, Amanda Fritz, declined to comment.
The Oregonian’s editorial page has called for his resignation, as have three smaller Portland newspapers and the police union.
Is anyone else seeing this lack of Accountability amongst Politicians as a growing offense?

Kissing can be considered Statutoryrape can't it? I dunno. It is undeniably unethical, inappropriate. He lied about the relationship and should be held accountable.
