This is a complete non-story and a complete hatchet job on someone who (as far as I can tell from this article) has done nothing wrong. I'm embarrassed to be a paying member of a paper that would print such an article.

If you're the police chief - I think you should be held to a higher standard than the average "Joe or Josephine". And more importantly, always avoid the appearance of impropriety. Sending sexually explicit text messages and photos of yourself via text or the web is not only dumb but inappropriate for the police chief. It makes me worry about his decision making skills.

He is not a priest. He did nothing illegal, a little immoral maybe but we are all human. I assume he is not married and the woman who he sent these to started the whole thing. I agree, this is a non-story. Move on, nothing to see here.

When will all those love letters written home by our troops make the front page. Will they be forced to make public apologies for expressions of desire and love? Where does this intrusion into the private lives of public servants stop? Why does the woman not get arrested for harassment?

Higher standard as a Chief these days? In many cases that a joke! Saratoga is lucky to have a chief that actually show up for work regularly. Try to go find Jim Hamilton at the Rotterdam station sometime during the week. Most times bet you won't find him there. Arrogant power.

So a higher standard...if your a police chief you cant spice up a consensual adult relationship between two unmarried people... this is not news and the women who saw the weiner story then alerted the media about this is a fool. She saw an opportunity for herself after a failed relationship and the media was dumb enough to let her run with it.
