Democrats have double-standard on some issues

You know it’s political season when political candidates attempt to use the media and make up issues that no one was originally concerned about. Our laws require financial disclosure that is open to public preview for local, state and federal candidates. Now we have candidates such as Jay Inslee asking for more information in his run for governor. I wish Jay would have told us he was not going to finish his term in Congress; that information may have been useful.
Is it not somewhat ironic the party that claimed the Patriot Act — which was passed to save our citizens’ very lives — was a violation of our constitutional rights now also claim reporting beyond legal requirements by candidates is in the national interest? This by political folks who up to recently had inside information to trading stocks for profit on Wall Street. Interesting how that was none of our business.
The political party that supports the constitutional ruling based on right to privacy supporting abortions (and sex with interns in the White House was none of our business) have no problems with their selective privacy issues that they can exploit and twist. What is obvious is certain media going along with a made-up issue. Why not college transcripts and medical records? How about video rentals?
What makes the Democratic Party activists the righteous defenders of our Constitution and what is important to the American people? It appears the ones with their minds made up who to vote for are fishing for things they can use against the candidate they oppose. Their advocacy for snooping and dirty politics should not be supported by the mainstream media. I would hope it would exposed because of their selective concern.
