WEINER: Congress’ hypocrisy is showing

Not for a moment do I condone the actions of Anthony Weiner. However, I wish that the “sins” of Congress were only as bad as Weiner’s.

Weiner’s sins were distasteful, but those of Congress hurt, damage and/or destroy real people. The only issue of import for virtually every member of Congress is to get re-elected as many times as they can find money to buy.
