The Collusion Memos – a Reader’s Comment

A reader notes the irony of Senators Durbin, Kennedy et al. protesting the disclosure of internal memos between their offices and liberal interest groups. After all, how can voters make an informed decision about the quality of their representation without access to otherwise confidential communications that may shed light on their policies? “Given their insistence that Mr. Estrada’s internal working papers from his tenure at the Solicitor General’s office be published, one would think that these Senators would be glad that similar papers from their own offices would be published, to the greater good of informing the voting public of the fine service these Senators perform ‘behind the scenes.’”
