It seems that the scandal revolving around former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich isn’t the only corruption scandal that could spell trouble for leading progressives, most noteworthy President Obama himself. Writing for the Examiner, Robert Moon reports that that the president is also implicated in the Romanoff-scandal.

Former Colorado House of Representatives Speaker Andrew Romanoff recently released a a copy of an email confirming his earlier accusations that the White House offered him a job to let Senator Michael Bennet’s reelection bid go unchallenged. Although it is certainly not uncommon for politicians to offer “someone a paid position in order to influence an election outcome,” as Moon explains, it most certainly is illegal.

Additionally, Moon adds, you have to wonder why it is that the mainstream media aren’t as upset about this scandal as they were when President Bush’s Attorney General Roberto Gonzalez “fired political appointees for political reasons,” which is, after all, quite a “common, non-controversial practice.”

The answer, I’m afraid, is that Gonzales and Bush were more or less conservatives, whereas Obama, Bennet and Romanoff are all progressives. And as we all know, crimes are only crimes when they’re committed by non-progressives. Leftists can get away with everything. When they break the law or, at the very least, act unethically, it’s carefully ignored or even concealed.

In any case, let’s hope that Romanoff has more evidence and that the relatively few conservative (and independent) news channels, websites, newspapers and blogs will help him expose the administration’s blatant corruption.
