Illegal View: Deja Vu?

The illegal accessing of official government files possibly for political gain?
Not good. Not good at all.
Well, it’s a relief to know that the targets of this invasion of privacy – all candidates for the highly sensitive office of the President of the United States – are themselves above such scurrilous activity. Certainly this is not the reason that one candidate is hesitant to comment on this week’s deplorable revelation.

“I expect a full and thorough investigation. It should be done in conjunction with those congressional committees that have oversight so it’s not simply an internal matter,” Mr. Obama told reporters.
Mr. McCain, who is traveling in France, called for an apology and a full investigation of the breach. “The United States of America values everyone’s privacy and corrective action should be taken,” he said.
Mrs. Clinton had not publicly commented by yesterday evening.

This may be a good thing if it wakes up the pols and shows them that they are vulnerable to privacy invasion just like the rest of us commoners.

In order to be more politically correct, I think we should call it “undocumented” accessing of government files.

It does seem suspicious that Tracy Flick has kept her mouth shut, especially since her husband was a victim of this during his presidential campaign.
