Some sort of protection

We've refrained from commenting on the Great Auckland Mayoral Sex Scandal, mostly because it's been quite amusing watching nearly everyone involved dig themselves deeper into holes of their own making (as we all do from time to time). But the Mayor's load of self-serving twaddle to the effect that there needs to be "some ability for elected representatives to - for better or for worse - maintain their private lives while they're carrying out their public duties" is begging for a response.
