What is the one thing that the Democrats and Media have consistently lobbed at President Trump and Republicans, recent years, to no avail? Corruption.
The Democrats and Media colluded to perpetuate the conspiracy of Trump utilizing Russian interference to win the 2016 General Election. They accused the Trump Team of improper conduct in handling the Stormy Daniels situation. They alleged that President Trump’s inner circle would betray him due to his “malfeasance.” Most recently, they have fabricated a partisan impeachment hoax to try and unseat President Trump before the 2020 election, and we must never forget how they worked to ruin the reputation of the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh over accusations that have shown to be politically motivated.
With the Democrats and media positioning themselves as the ultimate authorities on morality, one could reasonably assume that they would be diligent in identifying and ousting the corrupt from their ranks. However, recent developments have shown this to be untrue. The Democrats, and the media that consistently pays them lip service do not care about corruption. Quite frequently, the Left lambasts Conservatives over behavior that they deem reprehensible, and then they turn around and do the exact same thing. To verify this, in live time, one need to look no further than the current ethics scandal surrounding the former Democrat US Representative Katie Hill from California.
The scandal broke when Ms. Hill’s ex-husband outed her for being intimately involved with a male legislative aid. Subsequently, lewd photos and private communications between Hill and others revealed that she had been intimately involved with her subordinate campaign and congressional staff. Hill claims these photos were disseminated as revenge porn by her ex-husband as an attempt to discredit her, and that many were taken without her knowledge.
However, what is apparent through these leaked communications, that while Hill was ending an affair with one subordinate, she was engaged in an affair with another subordinate. This escapade led to the initiation of an ethics investigation in the House of Representatives against her. Ms. Hill, subsequently, resigned.
Hill, once considered a rising star among Congressional Democrats, has resigned amid an ethical scandal. She engaged in an intimate, romantic affair with subordinate staffers. Her actions violated significant rules in the House of Representatives’ Code of Conduct. Undoubtedly, she acted corruptly in her role.
Where is the outcry on the Left? Where is “the Squad” demanding her resignation and condemning her actions? Ms. Hill, formerly an individual with considerable influence and power, acted horrendously among her subordinates. Democrats have acknowledged that Hill acted inappropriately, but that is about it. There has been no outcry from the Left on Hill’s corrupt actions while she was a member of the United States House of Representatives. Even the Media, those that declare themselves the gatekeepers of our democracy, remained overwhelmingly silent on the matter. So, to what end do Democrats and the Media care about corruption? To put it rather simply, they don’t care. They do not care about Ms. Hill’s hypocrisy, nor do they care about her blatant violation of congressional codes of conduct. The Left only cares to root out “corruption” when it is politically advantageous for them.
