Ed Rendell: I’ve Bribed Someone Too
So I guess this makes it ok?
I’ll grant that this sort of quid pro quo arrangement no doubt happens a lot more in politics than most would like to believe, and that it’s almost impossible to prove, but in the Sestak instance (and now apparently in Rendell’s example) we have people admitting to have done it.
And it’s expressly illegal under the law.
Now, we can debate about whether or not it should be illegal, but it is obviously illegal now. And if we want it to be otherwise we should change the law. Otherwise, President Obama and Governor Rendell should both be held accountable.
Because remember, Obama’s chief adviser David Axlerod feels this sort of thing is a “serious” breech of the law.Tags: arlen specter, Barack Obama, bribery, david axelrod, ed rendell, joe sestak
