I must admit, I never really grasped what allegedly transpired in the Whitewater deal involving Bill and Hillary Clinton, nor what was illegal about it. Nor did I care to.
It’s just as well, as three separate (and probably expensive) investigations found no wrongdoing by the couple. (I still want my tax money back from Ken Starr’s investigation, by the way.)
Now Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is being accused of failing to disclose something or other in a Las Vegas land deal. This cannot be right; nothing untoward ever happens in that fine city!
I can’t get excited enough about land deal controversies to take the time to understand them. Not even Denny Hastert’s.
Still, if Reid has genuinely done something wrong, let him face the consequences as anyone else would, and should. I won’t support members of my own party when they do wrong.
If only others were willing to say the same.
