There's no fool like an old fool

My (US) Representative, Republican John Sweeney, showed up at a frat party recently at Union College. The students claim Sweeney was drunk at the party, but Sweeney's friend says he wasn't. I say, "What on Earth was Sweeney thinking"?

From reading the Times Union's article it appears that Sweeney hasn't even acknowledged that he showed poor judgment going to a frat party. Yet I'm sure he knows he shouldn't have gone to a frat party. There's obviously something about people in positions of power that makes them want to do things they know they shouldn't do.
