Torricelli's Goodbye

October 06, 2002

Re "We Carried the Torch Far Too Long," Commentary, Oct. 2: I can finally agree with Arianna Huffington on one matter. Her ridiculing of Sen. Robert Torricelli's self-serving, teary-eyed, belated but forced announcement that he was withdrawing from his race to be reelected senator from New Jersey is right on the mark.

The most outrageous of his many infamous farewell statements was his pleading, "When did we become such an unforgiving people?" Arianna, it was even before Torricelli slipped that Rolex watch on his wrist. Torricelli finally realized that New Jersey voters found out about all of his sleazy dealings.
