It shouldn't matter, but it does. Not for the reasons most people think. It matters because it can be exploited to force people into criminal activity and espionage via blackmail. I don't think any kind of moralizing should enter into it.

If an individual can't be honest and faithful to their partner, why would one expect them to be honest and faithful to their constituents? If an individual has an open relationship with their partner, I don't really see an issue.

Of course, society is mostly monogamist rather than polygamist. So of course when someone is being polygamist, people whine.

This is an excellent point. It's the reason that in the 1950s and 1960s, people with homosexual behavior were refused security clearances.

Personally, I do not care if they have affairs as long as they are doing their job and not letting their personal affairs affect it. If they are spending money on their affairs using people's taxes, or their mistresses are getting special privileges for being associated to them then I wouldn't support them. Otherwise, it's not my problem. It's their spouse's.

It looks as if we have another sex allegation in the UK, and they always seem to surface just before a politician is likely to run for office, and the "establishment" doesn't like him ( or her ) for some reason. My personal view is that it doesn't matter, and I would rather have someone with some spirit who believes in his country, than the treasonous wet dishrags who sell out the birthrights of their voters. They don't seem to have enough red blood to maintain an adult relationship, and they seem to end up with rumours of paedophilia.

People are so prissy about sex and politicians. I think it was Gerald Ford who caused a scandal when his wife commented on the large bed that he had moved into the White House. She stated that he was still an active man, and that was his wife speaking. What did they want - some drooling dotard that was past it.

Sir Ralph Halpern ( the former chairman of The Burton Group) had an affair with a topless model, and she is reputed to have said that they had sex five times a night. Sir Ralph had masterminded the recovery of the Burton group, and many considered it to be a basket case. The shareholders supported him, and the share price went up after the disclosure. Lets have some politicians like this who can orchestrate a national recovery, and not just sell of off the national assets to the bankers to buy re-election from the stupid voters.

In the USA it only is an issue if it is a Republican having the affair. Those of Democrats are routinely ignored, not reported, and not considered in decisions about them.
That's the double standards of the Democrats and the liberals,  But having an affair shouldn't be a big deal as long as it doesn't interfere with them doing what they are supposed to be doing.

Theoretically yes, it shouldn`t make a big deal - but it still makes a great opportunity for negative campaigning. Everybody may have affairs, but politicians are under constant pressure of media attention.
They should be extra careful, everything could be bloat out of proportion and used against them.
