Do politicians' personal lives affect how they do their jobs?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Elize Manoukian

"It's part of their character. That guy Anthony Weiner sent out pictures and he's running for mayor now. I feel that it does."

Ian Connolly, Sunnyvale

"I don't think anyone's personal life should affect or be considered if they're actually doing their job. If they're actually doing their job right, it shouldn't matter."

Kieu Tran

San Jose

"I believe it definitely does, because obviously their views are implemented in their work."

Tanya Guerrero, Mountain View

"Sometimes a politician's personal life might influence the way they are doing business, but I don't think it's necessarily indicative of their character or ability."

Michael De Los Reyes, San Jose

"I think that in some cases, a politician's person life may affect the way they do their work, but I don't necessarily feel like their personal life would affect how they are in office."

Nathan Villanueva, San Leandro
