If you look to the media for examples, you will find Tiger Woods’ alleged affair partner publishing flirty text messages to the public.  Also, Senator John Ensign of Nevada, whose affair with a former employee was confirmed by an incriminating text message.

Others, like Kwame Kilpatrick, the Detroit’s former mayor, were caught because they used government-issued cell phones. Mr. Kilpatrick lied under oath about having an affair with an aide, but his text messages revealed othrwise.

Nevada’s governor, Jim Gibbons, was recently accused by his wife in their recent divorce of sending more than 800 text messages to his mistress in 2007.  He argued that the woman was just a friend, but he ended up paying the state of Nevada $130 for the messages from his phone. The list goes on ad infinitum.
