In this day and age, he would never escape being in the news, being hounded, and being known as the kid whose real dad is a gay politician who once had an affair with his student. They always say, be careful what you put out there online. The media certainly wouldn't be willing to leave him alone, and even after it died down in immediate news, it would be forever viewable as info on the internet. The kid's 15. That would be pretty damn awful, and I had no problem with Dex trying to find a way to protect his identity. I would agree if he'd been running for the US senate, but on the state level? I doubt that most people even know the name of their state senators outside of maybe the one from their district, much less pay attention to their scandals that come out during a campaign. The family also seemed to live well outside of the city/district, it's hard to imagine the whole thing being more than a minor thing in the local media that would go away after the election. The kid finding out his mother lied to him about his father his entire life would have the bigger impact, but he deserves to know the truth and have the chance to know his father. 2 Link to comment
