The essay focus on a few notable examples (the Clinton-Lewinsky matter, JFK, FDR and other "presidential scandals, lawyer dishonesty and some examples from scholars and other professionals) to review how we ought to take account of what people do in their personal lives when making judgments about their professional performance (both in formal discipline and in moral judgments).
