Bloggers too numerous to mention have claimed that Hillary Clinton should be imprisoned for her tortious e-mail activities during her tenure as Secretary of State. Not gonna happen. She is merely joining the large and illustrious group of innocent until proven guilty non-felons who enjoy immunity from the laws that afflict the rest of us. She can even park in the handicapped-designated parking spot with impunity.
Here are some further examples: her husband, of course. Al Sharpton, whose official job description should be, if it isn’t, rabble rouser, who blithely declines to pay his back income tax. Al is not in hiding, like Whitey Bulger. He’s right out there, leading flash mobs and sharing wisdom with his dear old buddy, the President of the United States, at the latter’s taxpayer-funded residence.
And then there’s Jon Corzine, former governor of New Jersey, incompetent and corrupt even by the lenient standards of the Garden State. He lost millions of other people’s money and hasn’t the slightest idea what happened to it. It has slipped his mind, apparently permanently. Bernie Madoff must be gnashing his teeth.
I don’t understand where several former governors of Illinois went wrong, but at least three of them were actually sent to jail. Pure carelessness? Or did they make mistakes like Robert Menendez, Senator from New Jersey, who was doing just fine until he crossed the Democratic leadership by thinking for himself.
