Lewinsky, a former White House intern.

May we assume that Rep. Bob Livingston was an adulterer two weeks ago? Did he think then that he was unfit to lead? His stepping down (Dec. 19) leads me to believe that a private adulterer suffers no loss of ability to lead; but that inability only comes with public knowledge of the "sin." I call this gratuitous grandstanding. I call this hypocrisy. MARIAN L. GOLDBERG Marina del Rey First we hear that Rep. Henry Hyde admits to "youthful indiscretions" and now Livingston admits to previous affairs (Dec.

Twice during his congressional career he has almost come to blows with political opponents. Another time, he was admonished for appearing on the House floor wearing a bulbous red nose and clown makeup to demonstrate his scorn for what he considered a foolish bill. And if you cross Rep.

A termed-out incumbent who ran a longshot write-in campaign and the vice mayor appeared headed toward a mayoral runoff election late Tuesday in Long Beach, California's fifth-largest city.
