Re: “Clintons, Obamas set the standard for greed,” by Tom Haitema, Thursday:

Tom forgets that I am and have been an independent. I am free to criticize any wrongdoings of any politician.

God knows the inhabitants of the GOP have much more than their fair share. Beginning at the top and trickling down their entire corrupt membership in political offices from Washington to Podunk.

Including North Carolina state government in spades.

Yes, I condemn the Clintons. Both of them.

But like sexual abuse, the transgressions of one party don’t excuse the other.

The Oval Office has only one eight-year period in the last few decades with no sexual abuse or other scandal. But you don’t want to admit that, do you, Tom?
