|Yet another minor scandal in Pennsylvania was brought to light as Republican County Commissioner Thomas L Collins has admitted to visiting porno websites, while trips to online casinos have been found logged on the county courthouse computer.|
Collins claimed that his off-color indulgences were an “escape mechanism” from stress, claiming that he hadn’t been able to cope for the last eight years, most of the depression stemming from an incident involving his father falling down a well.
However, Commission Chairman Tom Weaver was unimpressed. “When we first found this information and his name came up, he told me that he had this problem (pornography) for some time and that he was seeking counselling for that,” Weaver said. “I wished him well. It’s just recently that he’s made stress an issue because of activity in the office. I don’t buy that because he told me he had this problem before.”
(Could this be what some experts mean when they refer to ‘addiction’ as a fabricated concept dreamed up by otherwise upright citizens when caught doing something they make a living telling others not to?)
