1) His behavior was disreputable. He deceived the courts and the American people.
2) The gravity of his offense is best measured by the disgusted attention that has been given to what he did.

6) The profiles of courage, in the contemporary scene, will highlight the Republican and Democratic Congressmen who summon the courage to do the right things.
