Congress and Ethics

June 11, 1989

I have just finished reading William Schneider's final lines in your Opinion Section ("Jim Wright's Capitol Punishment," June 4) and that's it! I say let the corrupt politicians all go for each other's throats. Clean out the bunch! Let's get back to our Founding Fathers' idea of public service.

I am tired of reading about McCarthyism. It scares me, but not because I believe we are on the eve of another Red Scare. It scares me because cleaning out corruption and greed is being compared to attacking people for their political and philosophical beliefs. It is another form of corruption and dishonesty to make these political hoodlums out to be victims. If they are victims it is because of their own misdeeds.
