Schumer's Plumbers

By Staff - October 3, 2005 - Investor's Business Daily
Staff members for a champion of the right to privacy and a leading critic of identity theft fraudulently obtained the credit report of a rising black political star. Your turn for tough questions, Sen. Schumer.

While the media focus on House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's alleged skirting of campaign laws to get Republicans elected, former Education Secretary Bill Bennett's alleged racially insensitive hypothetical regarding blacks, crime and abortion, and Sen. Bill Frist's recent sale of stock, a real crime against a black politician has been committed in virtual silence.

If anyone thinks that the double standard in the press is not real, just consider the final paragraph of this article and answer honestly, "Can you imagine the media firestorm if staffers for, say, Frist, had used Barack Obama's Social Security number to fraudulently obtain his credit report looking for stuff to derail his Senate campaign?"

Don't forget the sanctimony of this. Schumer is the person who has claimed the mantle of "legislative leader against identity theft crimes", the very action that his staff took.
