"He would not address the issue of just how intimate the relationship with Chandra Levy was," voter Diane Williams said. "Exactly, and that's what everyone wants to know. Just like with President Clinton, he is a member of the group that runs our state and our country and so it's like we should have the opportunity to know the truth."
"I feel like if he is hiding that kind of truth, that kind of stuff, what else is he hiding? And it doesn't really seem he's into family values and marriage and the higher morals that I believe in," local resident Ronelle Nespar said.
Others were less ready to write off their representative and even expressed sympathy for a man suddenly finding his private life making national headlines.
"I mean I understand, I don't condone what he did, but I can understand where he's trying to protect his reputation and continue his life," Michael Williams said.
"He's been a good representative for us, and as for his personal life, until he discloses something, I think we ought to give him the benefit of the doubt," Dave Grant said.
