"At the end of the day, it just tells you that honesty sometimes does not pay."

That was what former Malaysian health minister Chua Soi Lek had to say, after he was forced to resign after admitting that he was the man in two widely circulated sex tapes. He'd hoped that his pecadillos would be forgiven, but alas, as he put it, "Some Malaysians have a holier-than-thou attitude."

Mr. Chua was in two tapes that ran 56 and 44 minutes respectively, so stamina was in his favor. There is no mention in the article about whether he was using protection, however. Frankly, if he wasn't wearing a condom, then he probably should have been fired for not being a good role model as health minister. One must lead by example.
