FROM THE BOQ: BUSINESS, POLITICS AND ETHICS #3

Another question from Gregory Stock’s book is this:

Would you vote for a mayoral candidate who was honest, competent, and concurred with your position on most issues if you knew she was also an alcoholic who was sexually promiscuous and three times divorced?

Talk about a creative question–sounds like a soap opera plot!  In fact, my whore-moans hormones answer would be hell yes–as long as I topped her promiscuous list!

Now, joking aside:

This question cannot be answered–because, though there seems to be too much information–there’s really not enough.

A mayoral candidate could be competent, though sexually promiscuous and three times divorced.  But if she were an alcoholic, she could not be competent–unless she were a recovered (recovering) alcoholic (i.e. “on the wagon”).  And because Dr. Stock doesn’t specify whether this mayoral candidate is a recovered (recovering) alcoholic, or not–there’s no way we can know if she could be competent.
