The Laws Apply to Thee, But Not to Me

by Mark Krikorian

My colleague Jon Feere notes that illegal-alien journalist Jose Antonio Vargas has had his fraudulently acquired Washington State driver’s license cancelled — so far the only legal consequence of his revelation that he’s here illegally. Interestingly, Peter Perl, the head of personnel for the Washington Post who covered up Vargas’s illegal status for five years, told an interviewer that he’s suffered no consequences and has no regrets. So, let me get this straight — there are some crimes that the Washington Post disapproves of, like, say, breaking into a riverfront hotel/office complex and then covering it up, whereas others, like harboring an illegal alien, document fraud, perjury, and false claims of U.S. citizenship committed by their own employees, are okay. Good to know.
