Re: Are Federation politicians immune to sex scandals?
Holodecks have eliminated the need for sex scandals.
I tend to think 24th century people are very progressive about any sort of consensual sex, so people have basically stopped caring.
The Federation is a democratic body, but Starfleet is not.
The way the characters reacted to Geordi, Barkley and Quark using unlicensed representations of real people suggest there are still some taboos. It would be like producing porn today just using the likeness of someone else
