Technology Does It Again - The Mayor of Detroit

This time the technology provides text messages that prove problematic to the Mayor of Detroit. The messages relate to his relationship with a member of his staff. But what may be even more devastating is that a prosecutor is now investigating whether these messages prove prior lying that may have been under oath. (NYTimes here; AP here)  The Detroit Free Press has extensive press here including some of the text messages between the mayor and this member of his staff. And you have a prosecutor promising a full investigation (see here).  One has to wonder if the "shaming" punishment has already occurred in this case.
