Either way, something is clearly not right in his life and he needs a change.

I think he was simply following his impulses without any real editing of these impulses for appropriate behaviour and very little thought for the consequences. He did realise he was doing something inappropriate, hence the is our conversation private?" question, but he went on anyway.

We don't need people like that in government.
