Scandal and More on the "travesty"
Interesting discussion on the nature of a "scandal" using "Bridgegate" as a case study. The "travesty" mentioned earlier concerned some Dems not voting for person a top civil rights slot basically because some law enforcement types don't like his defense of a cause celebre cop killer. This is not good, but as a realpolitik matter, it happens. It is not because he supports civil rights or defended any murderer. Let's be clear on what is going on. Update: To be clear, the action here [his statement] is a "travesty," since there should be a blanket rule that this should not matter. See the video here. But, let's be clear on the specific problem. And, in Ted Cruz is a b.s.-ing asshole news.
