Corruption

February 16, 1986

You have tirelessly written about the escapades of Patrick Moriarty, "the political corruption figure." If he is that, then what about the corrupt politicians? Why are they not, too, being punished? Which is worse--the corrupter or the corruptee?

These politicians take an oath to uphold the laws of the office they have been elected to fill. Isn't their crime worse and why aren't you as unrelenting in your efforts to uncover and publicize their names and their obviously willing participation as you have been with Moriarty?

If the public officials who so unethically had their hands out are not equally brought to justice, then this whole campaign to reveal political corruption will have serve no purpose.
