There are men and there are sickos.Whoever betrayed a woman's trust by releasing nude pictures of her taken voluntarily or not is a sicko. A man, in the right frame of mind, no matter how angry he is, won't do such a thing.The agony, the anger and the sense of hopelessness of the victim is hard to imagine.No word of comfort can lessen the pain of betrayal, only time can heal the wound.
Our sympathy should go out to Elizabeth Wong if she is truly innocent and was a victim of betrayal.As I have said in my earlier post we should not jump to conclusion and condemn her without first knowing the truth.Calling for her resignation at this juncture is not right and Khir Toyo should be the last man to ask her to step down.Those who were under suspicion of wrongdoings and those who didn't have clean slate should shut up. Don't try to show your sanctimoniousness when you don't have any in the first place.
However, if more photographs of her surfaced showing it as her lifestyle than it would be untenable for her to keep her public office and would be a defining moment of her life.
