In practice people are tried in the court of public opinion and often found guilty before any evidence is properly weighed. The damage to reputation and viciousness of the process is such that I suspect many talented individuals will choose not to enter public service. They will say to themselves, who needs these headaches. Big picture, the public will lose. Forget for a second the merits of the charges against Frenkel which I doubt either of us is an expert on... Why would someone like this that already serviced as BoI Governor, and is making very good money at one of the largest banks in the world, want to subject himself to this? He already has the international reputation and bank account. And for the press, they have given a free pass to those who at the time reflected their own ideological beliefs. Consider how little digging was done into the well know corruption of both Sharon and Olmert when both were advancing policies deemed favorable by the media elite. So please forgive me for my skepticism.
