I am saddened by what has happened to PKR Assemblywoman Elizabeth Wong. If her pictures were taken without her permission, it is a clear violation of her privacy.
However, I am disgusted with low-class politicians who are trying to score cheap shots on her misfortune. These politicians are desperados.
Read some of the reactions:
Syed Hamid Albar, Home Minister:
"PKR has a lot of problematic people and they should settle their problems first before deciding to become the people's representatives in Parliament or even in the state assembly.Well, if she is the victim... I do not know... she is entitled to make a police report and the police will investigate.You may take naked photos in your private home, but you have to make sure the the public will not get it. In this case it is too early to say who is responsible." (A desperado?)
Nazri Abdul Aziz, Minister in Prime Minister's Department:
"I sympathise with the executive councillor, this thing should have not happened as she the people's representative and she had been performing her duties.Therefore, to foil what she has done for the community in this manner is not good. But I hope her spirits (remain strong) and she will not bother about what has happened." (A humane reaction)

The biggest desperado must be Khir Toyo urged state executive councillor Elizabeth Wong to resign following the circulation of her nude photographs. He said the Pakatan Rakyat leader should quit as state cabinet member as well as state assemblyperson for Bukit Lanjan."This is a moral issue. Previously, (former health minister and MCA deputy president) Dr Chua Soi Lek had also resigned over a similar incident."
Chua was asked to resign because he committed adultery and not because his private sex video was widely circulated in public. It is a shame that Khir Toyo cannot see the difference. Adultery is morally wrong. I would have defended Chua the same way if his private video with his legal lover was violated and circulated in public.
Of course the same set of standards must be applied to Elizabeth Wong. If she was found sleeping with another married man, then it is logical to ask her to vacate her positions.
Khir should try to answer a honest question; "does he believe that physical intimacy is something rare between couples?
There is another low-class desperado; the person who took the pictures and violated the trust of his former lover. Shame on you! You just have all men a bad name.
