Letters, Oh I Get Letters (Again)

Reader Joann Geary writes to the Pilot:

Did Rhoades Forget?

From a registered Democrat:

Uh-huh. Sure.

In response to Dusty Rhoades’ March 19 column mentioning deviant behavior of high profile Republicans, he says, “... a black Democratic politician (say Jesse Jackson) accused of this sort of thing would be lucky not to be given a symbolic public flogging of Clintonian proportions.”

It was not so long ago that Jesse Jackson diverted monies from his tax-exempt organization, PUSH — The Rainbow Coalition, to support his mistress and their illegitimate child. Where was, where is, the rage?

Ummm....I don't know if you've been paying attention, snookums, but I hear about this from every Republican who ever mentions Jesse Jackson. Which was precisely my point.

Yet there are people who even now contribute to PUSH, which still has its tax-exempt status, and Mr. Jackson maintains his status as a clergyman. As for Al Sharpton’s criminal activities, we’ll save that for another day.

And George Dubbya Bush is still the President. Your point?
