115. Here's my working theory on why she's not accountable.
I believe John never told her about the affair until last October, when the first public whispers in tabloid media were being heard. By that time, his girlfriend was pregnant, about five months pregnant. I believe John set up his aide to marry the woman, and used his attorney buddy to funnel money from the campaign to the girlfriend.

I believe John hid everything from Elizabeth, denied that the affair was current, but fessed up to a brief affair in 2006.

I believe John has yet to come clean entirely with Elizabeth, and that may happen if paternity is established.

Under my theory, Elizabeth learns in late 2007 about an affair she thinks is long over, was brief, and didn't produce a child. She therefore agrees to stand by John, and go forward.

So I measure her conduct as reasonable and expected, particularly under her circumstances. This is all on John.
