Utah women are under-represented in sex scandals

The Elliot Spitzer prostitute scandal illustrates an ongoing problem here in our own state. Last August, during the Sen. Larry Craig lovefest, we tried to come up with a list of Utah's sex scandals. Some astute readers filled in gaps, but one thing became clear: There is a glass ceiling for women when it comes to sex scandals.

Out of seven Utah politicians involved in hormone-driven scandals, six were men (Congressman Allan Howe, U.S. Senator Arthur Brown, Rep. Mel Brown, Rep. Brent Parker, Rep. Calvin Bird, and ex-Rep. Kelly Atkinson). Only one was a woman (Rep. Katherine Bryson).

How does one measure this scandal gap? If we compare it to pay, women should get about 69-80 percent of men's sex scandals. If we go with demographics, it should be half and half.

The harsh reality: There simply aren't enough female politicians in Utah. Until more women are elected to office, they will continue to be under-represented in the "Well, hello" opportunities. Women deserve a crack at the interns, too; Vote Femme in '08.
